Brigitte Bardot... the most beautiful woman who ever lived

At this moment in time, the world is blinded by fear, uncertainty, and loss. With an uncertain economy, fear of sickness and death looming, and worldwide restrictions, we are all faced with meeting our challenges and fears. Bad things may be happening around us, so let's go to the past and to the happy times...let's relive some of those golden years and escape reality even if it's just for the length of this gallery.

We tend to look back on the past with rose-tinted glasses. The reason the future and the present moment can feel uncomfortable at times like these is due to uncertainty...we just don't know if that outcome is going to provide us what we need to feel safe, secure, and happy.

The beautiful thing about revisiting history is it gives us the power of hindsight...we know what happens then, so it's safe and comfortable. And the memories that those moments in history provide us actually can help us shift how we feel in the present moment, which is the only thing that can shift how our future unfolds.

So let's take a look back on the groovy past, forget the uncertainty of today, and find serenity in the fact that no matter what has happened in the past, we have always survived, grown stronger, and wiser because of it.

In the groovy era Brigitte Bardot was the most eye-catching and beautiful woman in the world. She seemingly came out of the middle of nowhere to become an international sensation. Born to wealthy parents in France, Bardot was only 15 years old when she appeared on the cover of Elle Magazine in May 1950.

That cover made her incredibly famous at a young age and it cinched a ton of early parts for her. Director Roger Vadim saw the magazine cover and immediately put her in two of her earliest films: And God Created Woman and The Night Heaven Fell.

Bardot was an international star, but she preferred filming in France more than anything else because she had trouble acclimating to new places. Supposedly she hated filming in Spain until she discovered sangria.
