Brazilian model Raquel Zimmerman walked the Louis Vuitton fall 2009 runway with makeup and hair that channeled the look Brigitte Bardot popularized nearly 50 years ago. Although it’s nearly half a century later, there is nothing sexier than the subtle bangs, teased and poufed hair, dramatic liquid lined eyes, and pale pink/nude lips shown above.
Makeup artist Pat McGrath told Allure that she channeled flirty party girls and hairstylist Guido went for a more lusty look. “These girls are out to catch a man,” he said, “so everything has to be luxe and gorgeous.”
Bardot, the original blonde bombshell, was really on to something when she coined her signature look, sexiness in a way that’s both approachable and easy to achieve.
