Sexy Beauty of Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s Through Stunning Color Photos

One of the ultimate sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s - along with Sophia Loren - Brigitte Bardot shot to fame when she was just a teenager. After making her film debut in 1952, the French-born beauty made international waves, quickly grabbing the attention of Hollywood bigwigs.

One little-known fact? The iconic blonde bombshell isn't really a blonde! It was in 1956 that she bleached her naturally-dark hair, and the rest is history.

Today, an 83-year-old Bardot still occasionally makes public appearances, usually in support of animal rights. An impassioned animal welfare activist, she's dedicated her life (and much of her money) to protecting all types of creatures around the globe.

Take a look at the beauty of young Brigitte Bardot from the 1950s through these stunning color photos.
