In the sixties and seventies, Brigitte Bardot embodied the notion of French chic. Before her ascension to sex symbol status, she strayed toward simple dresses, apart from her Snuggie-like wedding gown in 1952. At the height of her fame, she could pull off a buttoned-up pantsuit as easily as her signature swimsuit and floppy hat, or a pair of square sunglasses and the shortest of hemlines. Click through her fashion highlights in the slideshow ahead.
