Iconic Inspiration- Charlotte Gainsbourg

With cool as ice French pop god Serge Gainsbourg and edgy English rose Jane Birkin as parents, Charlotte was destined from birth to be a style icon. She is muse to Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquiere and the object of Gael Garcia Bernal's affection in Michel Gondry's critcally acclaimed "The Science of Sleep". All of this is with good reason- I myself am enchanted by her looks. She's very plain, but has the sweetest, most interesting face that you simply can't take your eyes off of. Her style is also unique. She's very laissez-faire, and her beanpole physique allows her to pull off a very minimalist style, without looking dumpy. She's known to wear classic items like soft sweaters, trench coats, skinny jeans and beat up cowboy boots. For evening she pulls out all the stops with avant-garde Balenciaga, but keeps it low key with little to no makeup and her signature mop of long wavy hair and mod-girl bangs.

Face-wise she reminds me of a young Patti Smith, always a good thing.
