HAPPY 80th BIRTHDAY BRIGITTE BARDOT! (28 September 1934)

"All my life…I was never what I wanted to be, which was frank, honest, and straightforward. I wasn’t scandalous — I didn’t want to be. I wanted to be myself. Only myself."

In 2008, the French actress Isabel Adjani was chosen by the Russian businessman Evgeny Yakovlev to impersonate Margarita in a series of photographs for the exhibition Le Maître et Marguerite, Création Photographique, which was accomplished by the French photographer Jean Daniel Lorieux. The exhibition was so successful in Paris that it was extended. Then it moved to Moscow, where it was opened by the actor Alain Delon.

          I was tagged by http://dustyanswer.tumblr.com/  :-)

          What do you find attractive in a man/woman ?

          I know it’s very cliché but the whole balance between looks/attitudes/way to talk. Love to check eyes, hands and hair though !

          Do you collect anything ? If so, what ?

          Vinyl discs and books .

          if you could invite 6 people for dinner, who would you invite? (famous or not, dead or alive, fictional or real)

          I’d actually invite three people of my family who passed before I was born. Then, the choice would be too hard ! Marcel Proust, Eugène Delacroix and… I don’t know ! Vincent Price, Anita Conti, Antonin Artaud, Paul Simonon from The Clash, Vittorio Gassman, Beryl Markham… Can’t choose !!!

          who’s you favourite fictional character? why?

          Probably Albertine from Proust’s novels. First, I love this firstname (even if most people find it utterly ugly and unfeminine). I can see so much of myself in her (including the vulgar sides of her) without being able to explain it in  a rational way. She’s also like a friend to me (just as the narrator of the Recherche becomes little by little part of your life).

          if you could have any hair colour, which one would you choose? 

          Red hair (my mother’s hair colour).

          who is your ultimate otp?

          Brrr, awful question ! What about the otps I haven’t discovered yet ??

          have you ever met IRL someone you met online? (is my sentence grammatically correct? I think not!) how did it go?

          Yes, a couple of times. Started well, ended bad (mostly by my fault). Lost a very dear friend because of my shitty attitude :-/

          what perfume do you wear?

          It changes very often but Miss Dior (the original) has been a favourite for many years.

          do you follow current fashion? or are you into vintage/repro fashion? (or maybe you’re not into clothes at all?) any stores/brand you recommend?

          I don’t really follow fashion. I usually mix casual clothes you can find anywhere with a vintage element (hairstyle, shoes, skirt…). I love retro fashion on other people but I don’t feel comfortable in a whole vintage outfit, except for special events or parties.

          do you want to have children? (not right now? or maybe right now? one day? never? “I have Loubis that’s way better, they’re less expensive and they don’t cry”?)

          I want twins ! But only if I meet the right person. If not, I’d give all my love to a bunch of cats.

          do you have tattoos? want tattoos?

          No and no. As for retro fashion, I love gorgeous tattoos on other people but don’t fancy it for myself.

          My questions :

          1. Is there any artist you feel close to (dead or alive) and why ?

          2. Have you got any passion or hobby ?

          3. Do you love to dance ? Are you a good dancer ?

          4. Favourite instrument ?

          5. How did you get on Tumblr ?

          6. If you could time travel, which period would you visit ?

          7. What would be your idea of a perfect evening: going out with friends and going wild or staying at home alone/with your sweetheart ?

          8. Talk about a woman (anonymous or famous) you admire !

          9. What poster/painting/drawing can we see on your walls ?

          10. Winter or summer ?

          11. Anything you’d like to do before you die ?

          Dumb questions ! Answer them only if you want to ! Sorry for the possible mistakes ;-)
