Style Inspiration-French Girls

There’s something about a French girl. She oozes style and class, and is always effortlessly chic. She always looks put together, from the hair to the make-up to the clothes. And she makes it look so easy! Here’s a peek at my favorite Frenchies.

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

Daughter of one of my idols, Carine Roitfeld, this art director and model is now based in NYC. She consults for labels like Miu Miu, Zac Prosen, and Jean Paul Gaultier and it’s no wonder. She always looks amazing and is almost always in black. She is both glamorous and edgy.

Clemence Posey

As an actress, she has starred in such works as “Harry Potter” and “Gossip Girl”. As a model, she has been the face of Chloe fragrance and G-Star, and has walked the runway for Chanel, Burberry, and Balenciaga. What I love about her is her freshness.

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Actress, singer, and the daughter of Jane Birkin (you know, the woman who inspired the infamous Hermes Birkin bag). And if that’s not enough, she is the longtime muse of Balenciaga’s designer, Nicolas Ghesquiere. I admire how she takes classic pieces and makes them edgy.

Lou Doillon

Also the daughter of Jane Birkin, this gal is an actress and has modeled for Gap, Pirelli, and is a muse for Givenchy, Burberry, and Vanessa Bruno. She has fun with fashion and always adds the right accessories.

Elisa Sednaoui

Model, actress, and fashion week fixture, Elisa also has the honor of being the “spiritual” god daughter of Christian Louboutin (I wish). This beauty has starred in ads for Chanel, Armani, and Roberto Cavalli. I love how she is very bohemian yet still uber stylish.

It isn’t hard to see why French women are so stylish. They just get it. They would never leave the house in sweats, yet they still have a casual air about them. It seems as though they don’t try hard but there must be a thought process somewhere. Or maybe they’re just born with it. Either way, I think they are fabulous!
