there are 2 ladies who are my french fashion icons. they are beautiful and have amazing fashion sense in different ways. i just love their confidence in style and in being who they are in what they wear!
singer, actress, and model charlotte gainsbourg has been one of my favorite style icons ever since i first watched la science des reves (the science of sleep), a french/imaginative/artistic/romantic film. then i found out she was a singer, most recently pairing with beck in a single for her new album and totally fell in love. her style is casual, everyday wear – big bags, plain blouses, layered.
and then there’s actress, singer and red carpet star, marion cotillard. i can’t get over every dress i’ve seen her wear to award shows. i absolutely love them all! she always chooses perfect colors and dresses that are different, but work so well. and if you haven’t seen her in her oscar winning role as french music legend, edith piaf in la vie en rose – go watch it!
