The Bardot Babes
Byline: Samantha Booth
PICTURED kneeling in the Mediterranean surf, Kylie's sexy pout and tousled blonde hair are those of Sixties' screen legend Brigitte Bardot. But the pop princess is not the first star to ape the original sex kitten's iconic look. Everyone from Kate Moss to Pamela Anderson has tried to recreate her allure. They might have the same clothes and dark eye make-up but do they have the French movie star's je ne sais quois asks SAMANTHA BOOTH?
KATE MOSS WHEN supermodel Kate Moss was more famous for her jutting cheekbones and bony hips, her resemblance to Brigitte Bardot was never noticed. But in her latest fashion shoot for Missoni, the slightly more rounded new mum looked sensational as a Sixties' sex kitten. With tousled hair, heavy eyeliner and seductive poses, the similarities with the French screen icon were astounding. One fashion insider said: "If you are searching for the new Bardot, look no further. She has transformed herself into the ultimate modern sex kitten." When the 29-year-old model decided to go `Bardot', she did it with the kind of style, panache and simmering sexuality the woman herself would have been proud of. Bardot rating: 5/5

Her delicate Gallic features, sensual pout and sexy smouldering eyes are so similar to Bardot's that the pair could pass as mother and daughter. But the comparisons have never been stronger than when she starred in the film Elisa, where Vanessa, now 27, smouldered and teased just like Bardot.
She may have given up her career to concentrate on raising her family with husband Johnny Depp, but a comeback is probably not out of the question.
Bardot rating: 5/5
