For Girl Watchers to Ponder, from A to Z
Brigitte Bardot, BB
Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot, often referred to by her initials B.B., is a French former actress and singer, and animal rights activist. Famous for portraying sexually emancipated personae with hedonistic lifestyles, she was one of the best known sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s.
The French model, actress, and singer was the original blonde bombshell began her days in the arts as a dancer. From a very young age, Brigitte was an aspiring ballerina and very dedicated to her craft. At the age of seven she was enrolled at the Cours Hattemer private school and only attended three days a week, the other three days she spent in dance lessons at Madame Bourget’s dance studio. Perhaps this is where all her seemingly effortless grace comes from. Brigitte Bardot’s style, grace, immense talent and her passion for animal rights, has heavily influenced culture as a whole.
Brigitte Bardot was born on September 28, 1934 in Paris, France. Her father had an engineering degree and worked with his father in the family business. Brigitte’s mother encouraged her daughter to take up music and dance, and she proved to be very adept at it. By the time she was 15, Brigitte was trying a modeling career, and found herself in the French magazine “Elle.” Her incredible beauty readily apparent, Brigitte next tried films. In 1952, she appeared on screen for the first time as Javotte Lemoine in Crazy for Love (1952). Two more films followed and it was also the same year she married Roger Vadim. She wanted to marry him when she was 17, but her parents quashed any marriage plans until she turned 18. The union lasted less than four years.
Capitalizing on her success in French films, Brigitte made her first American production in Act of Love (1953) with Kirk Douglas, but she continued to make films in France. Brigitte’s explosive sexuality took the United States by storm, and the effect she had on millions of American men who had not seen a woman like her in a long, long time–if ever–was electric. Rise to the phrase “sex kitten” and fascination of her in the United States consisted of magazines photographs and dubbed over French films–good, bad or indifferent, her films drew audiences–mainly men–into theaters like lemmings. In 1965, she appeared as herself in the American-made Dear Brigitte (1965) with James Stewart (she only appeared in one scene).
Just before she turned 40, Brigitte retired from movies after filming The Edifying and Joyous Story of Colinot (1973). She prefers life outside of stardom. While it enabled her to become internationally famous, it also carried with it annoyances. It was not anything for her to have “fans” enter her house or wander around the grounds of her home in the hopes of getting a glimpse of her or to take something that belonged to her. Paparazzi constantly hounded her with their cameras. She has been so soft-hearted that some people even have taken advantage of her generosity. After her life in the spotlight, Brigitte went on to become a leading spokesperson for animal rights and started the “Foundation Brigitte Bardot” dedicated solely to that cause. Her work in that realm is, perhaps, far greater than any film she could have made. Brigitte has been married to Bernard d’Ormale since 1992 and they reside in St. Tropez.

Dan Hill. Sounds Electronic 66/33. Rare 1966 South African Cheesecake cover
Original released on LP CBS ALD 6977
(South Africa, 1966)
Once more, and this time because of the sad departure of the South African maestro last Sunday, I’m going to re-upload all the Sounds Electronic albums.
So, let’s begin, not quite from the start (’cause I don’t have the first one from the series) but with the 2nd volume, from 1966. Still in Mono, but the first one to have a gorgeous pin-up on the cover, which I guess helped to create and develop the great success of the collection. I was convinced that I wouldn’t put my hands on this album again (my father had it in Mozambique and was the first one he got). Thanks to Gideon, a Rato’s friend in South Africa, who discovered and sent it by what he called a snail mail (but it arrived!) I was lucky enough to have it again. After a little polish, in both the cover and the sound, here you have this rare gem from the mid-sixties to begin your Sounds Electronic collection.

“There was a wonderful iconoclastic talent seizing what it saw. I thought it should be let loose. In the fashion pictures of the Fifties, nothing like Klein had happened before. In my opinion he was the first to bring into photography what Léger achieved in art — the glorification of the life and rhythms of the street.” — Alexander Liberman

59 Photos Capture The Art Of Cool – Goodyear developed a tire in 1961 using mounted light bulbs in the wheel rim to make them glow in the dark, but never went into production.
It was in the early 1960s, when Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. decided to get their “cool” on. They began developing what the referred to as ”the tire of tomorrow.” Goodyear scientists experimented by developing a translucent model with tiny light bulbs mounted inside the wheel rim.
They poured dyed compounds of Neothane synthetic rubber into special molds and heating molasses-like batches to 250 degrees. With synthetic rubber, they could dye the tires any color. Engineers ended up installing 18 tiny bulbs in each rim to make the wheels would shine in the dark and wiring devices supplied electricity to create a glow.
It was all controlled by the driver with a switch inside the car. The control could make the tires blink individually or together.

Katharine McPhee stuns in $68 bra from her new collaboration
Yahoo Lifestyle Canada is committed to finding you the best products at the best prices. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.
On Tuesday, the 37-year-old took to Instagram to share the news of her collaboration with her more than 870,000 followers. McPhee’s post featured three photos and one short clip of her modelling a few bras from the new collection, as well as a caption explaining the inspiration behind her partnership with MINDD.
“I am beyond excited to finally share that I’ve partnered with MINDD, my favourite intimates brand, which was created by a D+ woman (the immensely talented Helena Kaylin) for D+ women, who, by the way, make up more than 60 per cent of women in the U.S. today, which is wild, right?” she penned.
The singer revealed she began wearing the brand while pregnant with her son, Rennie, and has been wearing MINDD’s products “every day since.”
“My body over the years has definitely changed in sizes in all kinds of ways but this bra will change with you,” she continued. “It’s really innovative. I love that these bras make me truly feel comfortable, supported and sexy at the same time.”
McPhee Foster concluded by announcing that her capsule collaboration with MINND will be available for purchase next month, and includes bras, bodysuits and underwear handpicked by the star.
McPhee’s announcement was met with praise by her fans who agree that there aren’t enough bra options for women “with breasts bigger than a B cup.”
“Finally, cute bras for women like us,” one person commented.
“Thank you so much for this! I will be buying,” another person chimed in. “Sixty per cent? Yay for being part of the majority!”
“Thank you. It’s so hard to look for a bra. You’re right, our bodies really change,”a follower wrote. “My kids are grownups, but ’til now I haven’t found the right one. Hope I can try this.”
“OK, I love this partnership,” someone else added. “Obviously, I need this bra.”
“It’s comfortable, it’s beautiful, and it’s designed for women who are D+ and above without compromising the way it looks, without compromising beauty and comfort,” McPhee Foster said.
McPhee explained that despite her body fluctuating in size, the bra was extremely adaptable.
“Over my adult years, my body has fluctuated so many times, whether it be time of the month or whether it be my size in jeans, and, as a woman — I think all women can relate to this — your breasts change,” she said. “And this is long-winded, but it’s a bra that you literally never have to change.”
