So far in this series we’ve looked at a lot of famous movie stars with very familiar styles. Marilyn Monroe was sexy and cute, Elizabeth Taylor overtly glamorous, and Grace Kelly looked so elegant and proper she could even give Princess lessons to Kate Middleton. All of them were sexy. But if you want sexy–like full-throttle, unabashed sexpot–look no further than Brigitte Bardot. I’m pretty sure she owns the copyright on the word “sultry” and none of us are allowed to use it without paying her royalties.

Here’s how to get her look.

1. The Haircut

Whoa! That’s a lot of look. People already assume redheads are sexy, and Brigitte Bardot’s double-barrelled sexpot style is a lot of look even on a blonde. Add the bright red hair to it, and you’re definitely going to get noticed. That’s OK, you can pull it off.

This look is inspired by Vanessa Paradis‘ look in the 90s, which was inspired by Brigitte Bardot. It’s a nice, slightly more modern take on Bardot’s look, and it’s also pretty similar to the makeup that’s so gorgeous on Adele.

11. Hair Powder

12. Brigitte Perfume by Tocca
