Italian American Beauty

The illustrious Illustraction Gallery recently introduced me to French actress, Mylene Demongeot (top right), who bears a striking resemblance to Anita Ekberg and Brigitte Bardot in this Italian photobusta for The Three Musketeers.

Sophia Bardot!

Vanity Fair has taken time out from covering the Oscar flavors of the month in their Hollywood Issue to profile the 77-year-old bombshells, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren –– two strong-willed women who went onto live productive lives far from the bright lights of Hollywood.

Allard For All!

If you fancy French movie posters, then you will certainly appreciate these scary beauties created by Gilbert Allard (who is sometimes referred to as “Georges” on various movie poster sites).

I couldn’t confirm the artist’s proper first name because he signed all of his posters simply, “G. Allard” (although I’m 97.1% sure!) — no matter, whether it’s Gilbert or Georges, I think we all can agree that these posters are gorgeous! (via Dominique Besson and LAMP)

Best of Bardot

After all, it’s no accident that many of the world’s greatest French poster artists — including Rene Peron, Jean Mascii, Guy Gerard Noel, and Clement Hurel — have done some of their best work to capture her.

Though by no means a definitive list, here’s a few of Bardot’s best…
