Brigitte on the Beach?

I was struck by these photographs from W—love the juxtaposition of the Brigitte Bardot hair with the almost monstrous makeup.

Indeed, in some of the images Lara reminds me of a postmodern Creature from the Black Lagoon.

I especially like the obvious lip liner paired with the extreme cat’s eye liner. I thought that cats didn’t like the beach . . . Maybe cool cats do.


And the girlish bow atop an obviously strong body is another pleasing dialogue.


So often long blonde hair is accessorized with softer clothing,


But it also works with an edgier vibe.

I love the catsy makeup, and the 60s inspired look.
