You know you've made it when your name becomes synonymous with a certain style or item – think the 'Rachel Haircut' or the 'Fosbury Flop'. And so it is with the 'Bardot Neckline'. To all you fellas out there, that's a wide open neckline exposing both shoulders.
But there's so much more to Bardot than that. International sex symbol, legendary screen actress, animal rights activist and, these days, a frequent visitor to the French courts for her right-wing views, Bardot's been a busy girl all her life.
She found fame as the ultimate French sex kitten in the 1956 film And God Created Women in which she played a bikini-clad teenager seducing men in small-town France.
Her film career spanned three decades before she abruptly retired and set about crusading against animal cruelty.
Married four times, her current husband was an adviser to the former leader of the French Front National, Jean-Marie LePen, and Bardot has been in and out of the courts ever since for inciting racial hatred.
So, international sex goddess or crazy right wing cat lady? Only time will tell, but one thing's for certain – Bardot's name will live on either way.
