Was recently in Manila for a magazine shoot, and the kind sponsor, Sofitel invited us to their ‘BB Forever’ event, an event to celebrate the beautiful Brigitte Bardot. I love Brigitte Bardot’s classic beauty and sensuality – the woman is sexy without even trying! The theme for the night was to come looking like Bardot. Funnily enough, in my earlier days modelling, I was styled to look like Brigitte Bardot for a magazine – Seventeen magazine, if I remember right. My mum probably has the pictures somewhere…will post it if I manage to find them!
Anyway so I definitely had an idea of what the look entails, and how I wanted to look. I brought along a little cocktail dress that I had scored from a vintage store in Thailand years ago, low-heeled red Mary Janes and Sha, the makeup artist on shoot with me, kindly offered to help me with my hair and makeup. The final result!
And here’s the entire team that was in Manila for the shoot – thanks for making me look pretty!
Some of the gorgeous guests that night.
Bardot-themed cocktails, and St Tropez-inspired nibbles.
And a Bardot-inspired fashion show!
And here are a few of my favourite Bardot moments:
