brigitte bardot

Vintage Brigitte Bardot postcard.

In the 1950s and 60s, boys and men were obsessing over iconic sex goddesses Marilyn Monroe, and Bridgitte Bardot. Born in Paris in 1934, the fashion model, actress and even singer first appeared as a model in the early 1950s; appearing on the cover of ELLE magazine in March 1950. She went on to appear in many different films, perhaps best known for her controversial role in Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman in 1956 and her starring role in Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt in 1963. She even went on to have a small singing career. But Bridgitte Bardot is probably best known for the icon she has become. A fashion icon along the likes of Marilyn, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O, she made the monokini popular and the "Bardot" neckline was named for her. Her hairstyle, a sort of beehive, has become associated with her. Guys wanted her and girls wanted to be her. John Lennon and Paul McCartney idolized her and even Andy Warhol painted her in 1974. To me, she embodies a look that I've been obsessing over lately. She's fierce, but still has something sweet about her; sexy, girly and edgy all at the same time. She's the type of woman that can kick your ass in a dress. (And she still is kicking ass - she's now an animal rights activist.) She's a huge icon to me, I mean, what's not to love?

Amazing! I've been able to see her influence a lot in today's fashion world, and some have really stood out to me recently:

Is it a coincidence that both of these girls are french? Maybe, let's just say I'm jealous that my friend Q. over at Quinntessential Style (and The Triple Thread) is going to school in Paris right now. Maybe she can send me some of France's amazing fashion senses!

jenny talullah humphrey

Lil' J even has a trendy middle name. Watching Gossip Girl last night I was very happy that Jenny was more in it than recently this season. Her outfits were amazing, as usual, and I loved her cotillion dress! I wish I still had occasions to get dressed up for like prom in high school. Although I never wore a full length gown for proms or anything, lately I've had the urge to wear one and I'd definitely wear this. Also The Plastiscines performed at the Cotillion! A while ago I did a post about their EP and now they're full album, About Love, is out and it's very good; I definitely recommend it! Plus they looked just as amazing as Lil' J.

I loved this dress but I couldn't find a better picture.

Ahhh I can't find who this dress is by but I will let you guys know if I do!

Love. Gossip Girl.

I haven't even been on the American Apparel website in so long but I have a Modern Art quiz tomorrow so naturally I am procrastinating and I found this:

Stretch Velvet Double U-Neck Longsleeve Mini Dress

It's beautiful and I want it now, now, now. I just want to go shopping dear bloggers! Anyway speaking of Modern Art, Jackson Pollock, I love you.

This is it. I'm nineteen and I'm moving to New York in the spring and I'm taking this seriously and I'm making something of myself. I'm dreaming of magazines and writing and fashion and I'll get there. This is it. Welcome to owl wings.

It's November and I'm inspired:
