Photographer Cornel Lucas, on how Brigitte Bardot became the first sex kitten:
"Brigitte was also conscious of her fairly buck front teeth and would put her wrist up in front of her mouth to cover them - a bit like a cat pawing milk away from its mouth. The publicity director said she was like a "sex kitten" and that's when the term was born."
