Collection of eight original photographs of a young Brigitte Bardot, three with Roger Vadim, circa early 1950s

N.p. N.p., Circa early 1950s. Collection of eight vintage small format borderless candid photographs of a young Brigitte Bardot practicing arabesque ballet moves, relaxing, and with husband Roger Vadim, in what appears to be their apartment. Photographs attributed to Marc Allegret, circa 1951. Printed on Kodak Velox paper, with a small detached ribbon copy snipe of "Brigitte BARDOT / VADIM."

In 1950 at an audition, Bardot, then 15, met Vadim and fell in love. Her parents would only approve of the relationship on the condition that she and Vadim marry when she turned eighteen, which they did on December 21, 1952, three months after her eighteenth birthday. That same year Bardot made her screen debut in the comedy "Crazy for Love," directed by Jean Boyer. Bardot and Vadim divorced five years later in 1957.

2 x 2.25 inches. All but one with either bruising or dried adhesive on verso, else Near Fine.
