Style Icon #1 - Francoise Hardy

I thought I’d share one of my favourite style icons – Francoise Hardy! I suppose she’s kindof like an Alexa Chung from the 60s. I absolutely love everything about her – her clothes, her songs, her hair…

Everything she wore was very chic, very French and very wearable today. I absolutely love the leather jacket she has on in the motorbike picture (which reminds me, I need to start my hunt for the perfect jacket!). I wouldn’t mind that coat either!

Not only was she great in the fashion department, Francoise was also a brilliant singer. Here is a video of my favourite song, ‘Tous les garcons et les filles’.

I’m going to talk about some of my other style icons in the future, so stay tuned!

Yes, she's beautiful =) But I don't think that the woman in the 1st picture is Francoise Hardy. It's the amazing Jane Birkin with amazing Serge Gainsbourg =)

I've just discovered your blog, which is very nice, congratulations! wish to write to say that yes on the first picture it is Jane Birkin with Serge Gainsbourg of whom I'm a big fan!!!
I read that you have an interest with France and being french I encourage you to listen to him: his great and a big part of french culture, and by the way he wrote songs for the great F Hardy among them the well known: "sous ancun prétexte"
