Lara Stone backstage at Gaultier
Brigitte Bardot in the mid-1960s
Stumbled upon this iconic image of Brigitte Bardot whilst researching for my paper on representations of modernization/alienation in the city of Paris in French New Wave cinema (might blog about this later... stay tuned). In the August '09 issue of W Magazine, Dutch übermodel of the moment Lara Stone beautifully channeled the French film icon's pigtailed, red-sweatered, cat-eyelinered (is that a word??) classic 1960s blonde bombshell look. Check out Interview's April 2010 issue for more of the "most sought-after face in fashion" : an in-depth interview with Lara by Marc Jacobs and some gorgeous, albeit titillating, photos.
