Brigitte Bardot

The station of Den Bosch (the town where I live), the crisis of the global capitalism and Brigitte Bardot. What on earth do they have in common?
Exactly, not much.
Aside from the fact that I had to give a presentation of those three subjects these last two days. And they all went good!
But that's not what I was going to say.
I'm not gonna bore you with stupid information about train stations or capitalism, but Brigitte Bardot is interesting, isn't she?

A French superstar, an iconish actress, model and singer.
She was born in 1934 in Paris, as the daughter of a dad who was industrial and a mom at home. She loved classical dance.

When she was 15 the director of ELLE Magazine spotted her and casted her for the cover. A lot of shoots were following and later on 48 films and more than 80 songs. Her most famous one is: 'Et dieu...crea la femme'

She was a legend in the fifties and sixties. She has been married for four times and she has one child. She hated her pregnancy, because she didn't want to become a mother.

In 1973 she stopped her acting work for the work of protecting animals. She has her own foundation: Brigitte Bardot Foundation. She has had a lot of critic on immigration, homosexuality and the islam in France.
She was a fashion icon. Think big eye-liner, big, blonde hair, the Breton stripes, squares, hats and hair ribbons. Cette éléments sont aujourd’hui encore très en vogue! B.B. est un mythe vivant, une modèle sociale et un sex-symbol international

Love this song, it's been used for the commercial of the French Parfum, 'Miss Dior Chérie'
