Красивая она была в молодости, не хуже Бриджит Бардо, даже красивее в сто раз. И, кстати, чтоб там ни говорили про распущенность нынешних знаменитостей, в таком откровенном платье никто не был замечен из ныне популярных персонажей, а фотографии Биркин по откровенности намного превосходят те же фото из Плейбой.

Правда она не выглядит пошлой дешевкой - наивный такой разврат получается.
