These actresses were among the most beautiful women on the planet, have they changed dramatically?
An iconic French model, Bardot was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful women in the world for most of the 1960’s and 70’s. Her beauty defined a generation and set the bar for fashion models today. Bardot started acting in 1952 and appeared in several comedy films and was even the topic of a controversial essay by Simone de Beauvoir. Bardot retired from the entertainment industry in 1973 and now focuses more on animal rights activism. At 82 she is still an outspoken woman and has drawn criticism in recent years for her views on immigration.
