15. Photo shoot from the 1960s

Move aside Carrie Bradshaw, it seems that Brigitte Bardot was the first to make wearing a frilly pink tutu a trend! In the 1960s Bardot posed for a photo shoot wearing a foofy, ruffled skirt paired with a casual grey sweater. The combination of a feminine piece with something casual to tone down the look and make it appear effortless is the epitome of French fashion, especially with the Mary Jane shoes! She wore her hair in a teased and tousled updo and wore her makeup smudged and smokey.

Although Bardot was known for her casual, effortless style, that doesn’t mean she didn’t know how to dress for an occasion!
