Nazis in Bikinis are tres Avant Garde. So if you’re going to be a famous anti-semite, racist and homophobe you might as well have yourself legendary style and sex appeal to balance out the bad. Perfect and possibly only example, is the majoring imitated Bridgette Bardot. She is famous for popularizing both the bikini and the European version of the beehive hair-style called the “Saurerkraut.” Bardot even has a neckline, the Bardot, named after her. Besides being in over 50 films, she was a recording artist, even working with (then boyfriend) Serge Gainsbourg. Apparently even John Lennon and Bob Dylan were obsessed with her during the days she was a film star.

Regardless of her crazy crazy side, we can’t deny she looked great. See some of her best fashion moments after the jump.
