Bessie Bardot was brought up in Mullumbimby near Byron Bay, Australia. Her life changed dramatically when she moved to Sydney’s North Shore after her mother separated from her ‘hippy’ father and married a preacher. The diversity of Bessie’s upbringing led her to develop a strong passion for free will and free speech. Upon finishing her HSC, she went on to work in advertising, journalism and fashion with labels such as DKNY, Guess and Calvin Klein. Since Bessie and Geoff met, they have focused on building their careers together, putting all their energies into joint projects combining these skills. Bessie has featured in numerous ad campaigns, including hosting several TV and radio shows. Christened ‘Australia’s Queen of the Body Bits’ by the press in reference to her unique physique and highly publicised ventures in the modelling world both as an agency owner and controversial model, Bessie now writes columns for several publications. She has designed her own lingerie range and remains a sought-after consultant to corporations involved in modelling and image promotion and events.
