The Princess of the Pout
Brigitte Bardot: The poster girl of the sex kitten look, and perhaps is the most infamous French actress ever. Bardot was the archetypal nymphet, with wild honey hair, the pouty lips, the big eyes, and (according to Time Magazine) she was "the countess of come hither". Brigitte worked her way through two foreign films a year during the 60s, released breathy record albums, and was known for her independent lifestyle and uninhibited sexuality.
