Biggest style influence and why? Brigitte Bardot has always intrigued me. Her style is timeless, feminine, simple and yet comfortable. She somehow managed to be sexy without being vulgar. There are many other French style icons who I also admire, but none have the body or curves that make Ms. Bardot so relatable.
