Brigitte Bardot has influenced so many style icons, especially in the 90s. Guess girls like Claudia Schiffer, and Supermodels like Kate Moss brought the 60s icon back into pop culture. So I thought I would share with you a modern take on the Bardot/90s look.
Last month we looked at Fall/Winter fashion trends that work for Everyday Starlets. Today we’re looking at beauty trends. As I mentioned in the fashion post, Starlets don’t tend to be trendy, but they always follow fashion and what’s current. So here are a few beauty trends that modern day Old Hollywood Starlets can rock….
Every Starlet needs some glamorous basics in their wardrobe. That way they can put together an outfit and look chic at a moments notice. Most basics are year round but there are a few wardrobe stapes that are specifically for warmer weather. Here are some Starlet summer wardrobe essentials…
It’s no surprise that Starlets love the beach…. and she needs to keep her aura of glamour even in the sand. Most Starlets spend so much time on the beach… and getting photographed there… that she has a collection of swimsuits that make her feel like a Gorgeous Glamour Goddess.

I go on diet kicks now and then… okay, all the time since I was a chubby little girl. I had been trying to jump on the gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian/vegan bandwagon, and I decided I needed a change. I pick up an old favorite book… French Women Don’t Get Fat. It really is a great read. It’s not really a diet, it’s more of a way to look at food differently. It’s about associating food with pleasure and getting the most pleasure out of everything… if that’s not a Starlet way of looking at things then I don’t know what is. I highly recommend you read the book, but I have summarized a few tips to get you eating like a French Starlet… because we can all use a little Brigitte Bardot in our lives… (more…)
