Sara Cooper Puts a Modern Twist on Brigitte Bardot's Style
Maniac Magazine enlisted Sara Cooper to style a Brigitte Bardot-inspired editorial for its current issue. "We didn't want to go completely vintage, but [instead put] a modern twist on the famous beauty," explained manager Cody Wiegand. "Sara nailed it. From the retro jumpsuits and headscarfs to the high-wasted pants and crop tops, the styling was exactly what we had envisioned – even better."
Cooper admitted: "I wasn't entirely confident that we could pull off the Bardot theme successfully, but the hair, makeup, and styling came together; plus, our model, Linnea Pihl, gave the concept a life of its own." She mentioned that Bardot's sixties wardrobe is on-trend this spring, which "helped keep the story inspired and current. We featured Love Richard Chai, Won Hundred, Stone Cold Fox, Alice Roi, Smythe, and Janessa Leone, among other labels."
"One outfit was really out of the box, but just worked," Wiegand added. "It was a blue bodysuit paired with an ultra-modern raincoat with fur. Who would have thought to put that together? Sara! She has a great eye for mixing pieces."
