saint-tropez brigitte bardot


Brigitte Bardot and Saint-Tropez… more than a love story, it’s an inseparable relationship when one mentions either, the icon of 60s cinema and the fishermen’ village where she settled since 1958, to the point that one might believe that BB discovered Saint-Tropez, a charming Mediterranean port, one fine day in 1956 during the filming of “And God Created Woman…” with the legendary role that would change her destiny… Her career is launched! But with nearly 48 films to her credit and over 80 songs in 21 years of career, she announced on the eve of her fortieth birthday the definitive end of her film career to embrace the animal protection cause. For three decades, associated with the Foundation she created and funded in 1986, notably by auctioning off her jewelry and other personal items, she has actively and tirelessly advocated from “La Madrague” and regularly appeals to national or international authorities in favor of animals. An unwavering commitment to this cause of which she remains a national figurehead… @fondationbrigittebardot
