Brigitte Bardot Style Of Wedding

Brigitte Bardot Style, Though audiences flocked to the theater to see Brigitte Bardot style in various states of undress, the curvaceous and pouty-lipped star managed to make a lasting mark on fashion beyond the itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny bikini.

Ironically, it was the bridal market on which sex kitten Bardot would have the greatest fashion impact. The dress that will forever be associated with the French star is a demure lace-trimmed pink-and-white gingham (Vichy check) shirtdress designed for her second wedding, in 1959, to the impossibly handsome French actor Jacques Charrier, which was copied endlessly (and, in fact, was referenced this spring in the latest Brigitte Bardot x La Redoute fast-fashion collection.)

The short, summery, ultra-feminine dress was both unconventional and influential €”as well as completely distinct from much-married Bardot’s real-life and movie wedding looks. When she married husband number three, the German playboy and industrialist Gunter Sachs in Las Vegas, a barefoot Bardot wore a casual minidress that was the polar opposite of the dress she designed and wore to her first wedding, in 1952 to Svengali director Roger Vadim. As well as being the ultimate sex symbol, Bardot represented youth, which in France, and in fashion (over which the exclusive, labor-intensive haute couture was just beginning to lose its grip in the early sixties to more accessible off-the-rack boutique modes), was a relatively new concept, new enough, that Esterel saw fit to comment on it in a 1960 interview that gives an intriguing and intimate glimpse into Bardot’s tastes and shopping habits
