Get the Look: Brigitte Bardot on San Tropez under $50

Often called France’s version of Marilyn Monroe, the stunning Brigitte Bardot, who made her debut in And God Created Woman created her own image. Bardot always had a french, undone yet still chic, just rolled out of bed quality, whether she was on the beach in a bikini or out to dinner in a cocktail dress. Today, Brigitte’s look is still prevalent, especially as designers look to the past (the golden age of Hollywood) for inspiration. With Memorial Day Weekend underway, summer has (unofficially) begun. There’s no better time to channel your inner Bardot.
