January 17th was French style icon Françoise Hardy’s 71st birthday. I am embarrassed to say I didn’t realize the model, actress, and musician was still alive. This is probably because all of the photos I’ve ever seen of her are from the 1960’s and she is painfully shy so she doesn’t make too many appearances. It is her look from the 1960’s though that continues to inspire “it girls” and fashion designers but as you can see at the end of this post, she is still just as beautiful and chic today.
Bon anniversaire Françoise !
