    Default Brigitte Bardot, the first size zero

    Wow check out Brigitte when she was 19! Tiny waist!!!!!

    And God created woman ...



    But looking at this extraordinary photograph of a teenage Brigitte Bardot, it seems He didn't have quite enough material to go round.

    Her waist is so tiny it appears her hands would fit round with a little to spare. In fact a bracelet rather than a belt might have been a more fitting accessory. Scroll down for more ...

    Brigitte Bardot fixes with camera with what would become a trademark sexy pose - either that, or the belt is cutting off circulation to her lower body ...




    The then unknown 19-year-old actress is showing off what could easily be the size zero figure so much at the forefront of debate about health and fashion today.


    The photograph was taken on the beach at Cannes in 1955 when Miss Bardot made her first appearance at the film festival there.

    It emerged yesterday among a number of shots released to mark the festival's 60th anniversary.

    The 1950s are more commonly associated with the curvier look of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner.

    Bardot is said to have boasted hour-glass statistics of 36-20-35 in 1956 during the filming of And God Created Woman, the Roger Vadim classic that made her one of the world's best known sex symbols. Other reports suggest her waist was a mere 19 inches.

    In this photograph it appears her astonishing figure is not assisted by a corset, although the belt does appear to be buckled up particularly tightly.


    BB, as she became known, retired from acting at 39 and has since been involved with various animal rights causes. Today she is barely recognisable as the pouting blonde of her heyday and owes her looks to years of St Tropez sunbathing and a desire not to hide the fact she is 72.


    The fashion for painfully thin models was highlighted earlier this year when the British Fashion Council refused to ban size zero models from London Fashion Week's catwalks.


    Size zero, an American measurement that equals a British size four, fits a 22-inch waist - the average size of an eight-year-old girl.
    Extremely thin models were banned from appearing at the Madrid fashion shows last year. Unlike their British counterparts, Spanish organisers refused to let those with a BMI rating of less than 18 take to the catwalks out of concern for their health.

    While that cinched-in waist might qualify her, I would think her hips (small as they are) would have kept her out of a size 0. If you look at size 0 jeans, they don't allow for much in the way of hips either.

    That waist doesn't look so natural. Could she be wearing a corset underneath? It grosses me out a little. Reminds me of that Guinnessbook record lady, Cathie Jung or someone like that.


    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    When I look at pics of her when she was very young, I just don't find her attractive. In the pic above, her waist is too small. I also don't like her as a brunette.

    I think she hit her peak in her mid twenties to thirties. She's 27 in the this picture, for example, and she's gorgeous. Brigitte Bardot Photos

    She is a walking billboard of all the reasons one should not smoke, she looks like a weathered old bag.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    She was so gorgeous!
    She really doesn't look all that bad now considering she must be close to 70 and hasn't had any PS.

    I don't think that first picture is real. I have looked at many pictures of her and I have never seen her waist THAT tiny. She was tiny but that's just on the crazy side.

    Her waist in that pic is as wide as her head. She was gorgeous, I must say.

    It is cinched. There are pictures of her in a bikini from around that time and her waist is nowhere near that small.
