Brigitte is a French indie folk musical duo formed in 2008 by Sylvie Hoarau (the brunette) and Aurélie Saada (the blonde). Their 2011 debut full-length album Et vous, tu m'aimes?, went platinum in France. It is sold through both French and the U.S. iTunes Store.
Brigitte is a take on famous Brigittes of yore, such as Brigitte Bardot; in an interview, one of them said:
Brigitte, c'est rétro, notre style, c'est les années 50, c'est français, c'est Brigitte Bardot, c'est Brigitte Lahaye, c'est la tante qui cuisine, c'est la femme du cousin. Brigitte, c'est la femme au pluriel. - urélie Maggiori, Sud Ouest, 21 July 2010
(Brigitte is retro, our style it's the 50s, it's French, it's Brigitte Bardot, it's Brigitte Lahaye, the aunt that cooks, the housewife. Brigitte is the woman in plural)
English version of "Oh La La" was used for a Lancôme ad
"La Poudrière" was used as soundtrack for a short directed by Aurélie Saada for Vogue Eyewear.
