The choice to go under the knife is not much of a choice in Lebanon; it’s more like the norm. Not that I’m opposed to it. On the contrary! I’m a big supporter of plastic surgery done right. Actually I’m a fan of anything that makes a person feel good/better/more confident about themselves!
I was quite shocked today when I came across a recent photo of the one and only “Brigitte Bardot”. For those who don’t know, Brigitte is a French actress/temptress born on September 28, 1934. The only images of her in my head are those of a smoldering hot French blonde who’s risqué playfulness and sex appeal are enough to put Marylin Monroe to shame!
Here’s a little trip down memory lane with some of Brigitte Bardot’s most famous quotes …
Stunning, isn’t she?
I was quite surprised to know that she chose NOT to go under the knife as she grew older. Her choice was to age gracefully. In her own words: “What could be more beautiful than a dear old lady growing wise with age? Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.”
Here is the more recent photo I came across of Brigitte Bardot. It’s from an event in Mexico for an organization fighting to save stray dogs from being euthanized. Not to forget, she is the most prominent animals right activist ever!
Do you think Brigitte Bardot took the right decision by abstaining from plastic surgery?
