Brigitte Bardot THE Femme Fatale!!!

I dedicate this post to one of the most beautiful style icons of all time, the glorious Brigitte Bardot.
I kind of grew up watching her films and was fascinated by her beauty and her screen presence.
After 1hr of browsing photos of her online , i selected the ones that i like most and represent her eternal style if i may say, as she has been an inspiration for so many years to fashion designers, editorials, models and so on.......
In the following photos i  admire her sense of style and  sexuality,  after 1hr of looking at her i want to go and BlEACH my hair blonde! What i truly admire is that she is a massive animal activist and i do give her a lot of credit for that!!! Bravo Brigitte! 
A bit of Wikipedia won't harm...

In fashion the Bardot neckline (a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders) is named after her. Bardot popularized this style which is especially used for knitted sweaters or jumpers although it is also used for other tops and dresses.
Bardot is recognised for popularizing bikini swimwear in early films such as Manina (Woman without a Veil, 1952), in her appearances at Cannes and in many photo shoots.
Bardot also brought into fashion the choucroute ("Sauerkraut") hairstyle (a sort of beehive hair style) and gingham clothes after wearing a checkered pink dress, designed by Jacques Esterel, at her wedding to Charrier. She was the subject for an Andy Warhol painting.
In addition to popularizing the bikini swimming suit, Bardot has also been credited with popularizing the city of St. Tropez and the town of Buzios, Brazil, which she visited in 1964 with her boyfriend at the time, Brazilian musician Bob Zagury. A statue by Christina Motta honours Brigitte Bardot in Buzios, Brazil.

VISIONARE presents an evening dedicated to DAVID BYRNE! see you there!

Visionare's 2nd day of music film and documentaries sees an evening dedicated to singer-songwriter-filmmaker-artist DAVID BYRNE (TALKING HEADS), including screenings of his breathtaking films, True Stories (1986) and Ilé Aiyé (The House Of Life) (1989).

Matinee 6.30PM – 8.00PM

TRUE STORIES David Byrne’s directoral debut, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas, which looks at life of everyday townsfolk. Louis Fyne (John Goodman) is a man desperate to get married; the lazy woman is named so for her refusal to leave bed; and Earl Culver lives with a wife he no longer talks to. Littered with beautiful oddities and iconic imagery, True Stories feels an artful pre-cursor to Lynch’s Twin Peaks.

Main Event 8.00PM - 2.00AM
Ille Aiye (HOUSE OF LIFE), which is an impressionistic approach in exploring the Candombe religion and its people, found in the Bahia region of Brazil. Building a cultural collage of music, dance and archival footage Byrne takes us on a visceral journey of a culture that has pulsating and evocative music at its core.

Following the screenings, there will be a live performance by Matt Motte and his band performing some Talking Heads classics + Dalston’s mischievous four-piece DJANGO DJANGO http://www.myspace.com/djangotime, who are headlining this years Stag & Dagger festival will perform Talking Heads inspired music.

More bands and DJ’s to be confirmed.

Shoreditch’s Village Underground is the perfect venue to play host to this fantastic two day event. Set up by a London and NYC collective of filmmakers, music promoters, VJs and artistes, this former Victorian warehouse is now a state-of-the-art music and theatre venue, and its vaulted brick arches will provide the ideal backdrop to Visionäre’s inaugural audiovisual showcase.
From house to arthouse, from prog rock to music doc, Visionäre’s debut event of film magic and audio artistry will be an event not to be missed.
