The Ten Best Pictures of Brigitte Bardot Ever (Probably)

Today is French bombshell and noted racial shit-stirrer Brigitte Bardot's 77th birthday. The model, actress and sometime singer still makes lists of the most-desirable women of all time, and her press photos and modeling snaps are still drooled over by men of all ages. Hell, my own grandfather probably had some of her pics in his Air Force foot locker for decades before I was even born.

Along with Ann-Margret, Twiggy and Sophia Loren, Bardot made up this menacing pack of '50s and '60s sex kittens that were almost cruel in their rampant sexuality, and they all listened to rock music, smoked marijuana cigarettes and had affairs with the kind of rich men who signed the checks that made the world go 'round.
