The Bardot Pose: just a pair of black stockings

Known as “The Bardot Pose” and considered one of the sexiest poses ever struck, this image of BB half naked, dressed just with a pair of black stockings, defines a sexy, glamorous style that has been inspirational for many. The iconic pose has been brought back by models and actresses, sometimes identical or with new twists: bold and sensual Rihanna, elegant Gisele who nonchalantly inverts the crossing of her legs.
