The King of St. Tropez

Gigi Rizzi, was one of the most famous ladies' man during the late 60s and 70s. This Italian became a St. Tropez icon when in the summer of 1968 he was seen all over town with Brigitte Bardot. Whether on Bardot's Riva boat, strolling around, or attending a party they caught everyone's attention.

Below a snapshot taken at a club in St. Tropez that summer in which we can see both of them wearing a type of headband; it may look a bit strange but then again one has to remember it was a year after "The Summer of Love". Gigi is wearing a fitted white polo shirt and black pants, while Brigitte appears to wear a beaded top covered by her long blond hair.
