modern times

lately i've been researching classic icons of the european variety (i.e. jane birkin, marianne faithful, catherine deneuve). there was class, quirk, and quality in the way they dressed. so i was THRILLED when my friend megan j. walked in wearing a nearly identical outfit to one of my favorite photos of french songstress francoise hardy!
megan's version includes a blouse from target, shorts from forever 21, shoes are BC, and the feather necklace was purchased from etsy!

you must check out a documentary on french actresses titled "French Beauty", the last time I saw it was Turner Classic Movies, Jane was interviewed with her daughters Charlotte Gainsbourgh and Lou Doillon, two more great women in cinema today......

other great actresses you might want to look into.....and my all time favorites.......

Anouck Aimee
Fanny Ardant
Isabelle Huppert
Emmanuelle Beart

Marion Cotillard is my hands down all time favorite - you must rent "Love Me If You Dare" and "A Very Long Engagement" and she was flawless in "La Vie En Rose"

I love Anouck Aimme's movies (have most of them) but Marion has been my all time favorite now since I saw her in Furia back in '99.

Marion is about to start filming Rob Marshall's new movie "Nine" which she costars with Sophia Loren, Judy Dench, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Javier about a cast
