Back in the 1950s and ’60s, Brigitte Bardot was a superstar whose beauty made her a major sex symbol.

And while the French former actress still gives interviews and makes headlines, she now looks remarkably different to how she appeared in her heyday. In fact, you may not even recognize her at all.
