I am busy painting my latest commission. Part of the brief was that it be in the style of 1950s St. Tropez. So I have been looking at lots of photographs like this, of Bridget Bardot, yachts, and gorgeous beach accessories.

1950s/60s Riviera chic is such a great theme and classic style - floppy straw hats, gingham shorts, oversized sunglasses, and tanned gigolos!

Whilst looking for images I came across this. I think it's Bridget Bardot, but my question is did men really wear shorts like these?!!

In answer your question - not that I can remember. Don't you think Bridget Bardot had a timeless face?
