If you are a fan of the beloved Briggite Bardot. These rare photos from 1956 in the “Mademoiselle Striptease” act are going to impress you. These come from the part in which she portrays the part of a good girl who has to bare herself to a room full of men during a strip tease that she partakes in to get herself out of a tough situation that she is in.
She bares very little, really, when you compare it to the other women in the show, and yet still manages to win the entire thing, making her something of a celebrity in the span of the 1956 show. These photos show her strutting around doing her thing and enjoying the entire time, as per her character. The rare photographs give us a look into how modest she was (considering the times) and yet still manages to win the entire thing. A great piece of history.
