    When we think of Bardot, we think "sex kitten"—but the appeal of this icon was that she was coquettish, not downright raunchy. A tighter top balances a girly, full skirt (in on-trend gingham, no less), but be sure to finish the look off with flirty, full-volume, post-romp hair (and her signature cat-eye, bien sûr.)
