Before Fame: Rare and Stunning Pictures of an Innocent Brigitte Bardot From the Early 1950s

When Annie Boulat came across an old brown envelope when clearing out the cellar at her family home, her first instinct was to throw it in the bin along with all the other rubbish. Thankfully she did not.

Inside the dusty envelope were contact sheets of a young Brigitte Bardot in braids and ballet pointes, sucking her thumb, playing with her dog and pulling faces.

According to the Telegraph, these stunning photographs were taken by Mrs Boulat's late husband, the French society photographer Pierre Boulat, who was living in the same apartment building as Bardot, who was then just 16 or 17 years old.
