Insipred by an Icon: Spotlight on Brigitte Bardot, Effortless Glamour at it's Best!

Saturday, July 20, 2013


"Celebrity Style" is a term which is used a lot today, however it's not a modern concept. Indeed most of the silver screen's true "Style Icons" date back decades (think Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly), their impact on the fashion landscape still influencing many of today's top fashion trends!

This summer, we’re feeling inspired by gorgeous 50s and 60s sex siren Brigitte Bardot whose iconic style is still as relevant today six decades on. The French model and actress carried off bodacious hair and bohemian style with effortless glamour and her style is still the envy of women today.

Insipred by Bardot's effortless style, local model Jayne Higgins, was photographed recently modelling the looks perfectly and carrying off the sex kitten’s style with aplomb!  Showng how to look stylish in the sun, get her look at THE OUTLET, Banbridge this summer!

To get the look concentrate on monochrome and camel and nude hues in classically tailored pieces. Focus on soft flowing fabrics, to capture a feminine edge, whilst still retaining the classic French tailored look. Finish the look with perfectly coiffed hair and you're ready to go!
