Brigitte Bardot has always been one of the most influential fashion and beauty icons to me, specially when seeking for summer style inspiration.
Blond messy hair, winged eyeliner, headbands, breton stripes, ballerina shoes, straw bags, off shoulder tops… She was constantly defining the perfect timeless summer style uniform.
But Bardot’s biggest devotion was with gingham pattern, called in French Vichy, as she even chose a pink gingham gown for her wedding day.
