Brigitte Bardot Rocked A Cowboy Hat In 'Les Petroleuses' (PHOTO)

Many girls wouldn't dare wear cowboy hats (unless they're from Texas, where it's a wardrobe staple). Brigitte Bardot, however, proves in the photo below, from the 1971 film 'Les Petroleuses,' that a cowboy hat can be feminine, and even sexy.

Bardot paired her black hat with a ruffled, sheer top and simple, glowing makeup. Would you try a look like this the next time you have a Western-themed occasion?
