Iconic Inspiration- Jean Seberg in Breathless
Godard's title perfectly describes how one feels upon seeing Jean Seberg- breathless. She is absolutely exquisite and embodies a perfect example of new wave style. She also proves that short hair can be just as sexy as long, if not sexier. To recreate her look, I recommend shopping places like Petit Bateau for classic striped boatneck tees and Built By Wendy for simple cotton day dresses. Thrift stores are a great source for well cut vintage trench coats and your local army and navy surplus usually has a large selection of hats, so you're likely to find a fedora like hers for a reasonable price. For shoes, simple ballet flats work well and accessories should be kept to a minimum. Makeup should remain minimal as well, except for the ubiquitous cat's eye liquid liner on the upper eyelid.
