For this week's installment of 10 More Movies for Fashion Inspiration, we'll be looking at the style of the 1956 French film ...And God Created Woman (also known as "Et Dieu… créa la femme".) The film is about an 18-year-old wild child (Brigitte Bardot) whose unconventional behavior often gets her in trouble.
Brigitte is the definition of bombshell in this film and her style reflects that. The movie includes formfitting pieces, but still leaves a lot to the imagination. Many shirt dresses, pencil skirts and snug dresses are shown in the film.
Want to try and emulate Ms. Bardot's style? Check out these four outfits inspired by ...And God Created Woman.
Outfit #1: Total Vixen
This outfit will make you look ultra feminine but still conservative. The bodysuit creates a smooth and streamlined look that's especially bombshell-sexy when paired with a high-waisted pencil skirt. These adorable peep toe slingbacks have a very 1950s feel. Add a patent clutch and clamshell earrings to capture Brigitte Bardot's style.
Outfit #2: Subtly Sexy
You can never go wrong with a great fitted shirt dress in a neutral color. Brigitte Bardot knew how to wear this simple dress silhouette and still make it look totally glam. Continue the neutral palette with some brown wedges and a matching bag. Accessorize with this interesting gold ring.
Outfit #3: Va-Va-Voom
This outfit screams bombshell. The pencil dress is super-flattering and eye-catching in a gorgeous purple. The black clutch and kitten heels look straight out of the 1950s. The bracelet and matching earrings are perfect for any formal event.
Outfit #4: Beach Bunny
Brigitte Bardot is famous for making the bikini popular. This retro-inspired bikini has more coverage than most other swimsuits for a more 1950s look. If you're not comfortable in a bikini, the website also sells a one piece version. To accessorize, add a wide-brimmed floppy hat and some strappy sandals. In addition, a canvas bag is roomy and durable enough to carry to the beach or pool. Finally, I had to add the most important accessory--- sunscreen! Neutrogena Ultra Sheer is my absolute favorite.
