FAVOURITE MUSE OF PARIS DESIGNERS AND THE NEW FACE OF GERARD DARF.L, CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG, TALKS ABOUT HOW SHE HAS MANAGED TO BECOME ONE OF FRANCE’S PRINCIPAL ICONS NOT JUST IN FILM, BUT ALSO IN THE WORLD OF FASHION
I WAS BROUGHT UP in the family of an English woman and a Frenchman. But my father’s genes took the upper hand: from my earliest childhood I behaved and dressed like a true French woman.
THE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS which I feel on the screen are always real. So I have a very close connection with all the characters I play.
I PRIZE simplicity and elegance. This is what distinguishes Gerard Darel: the brand’s designers create comfortable urban clothes which always have something special to them.
WORKING AS AN ACTRESS is a constant reminder that I’m ageing. There’s nothing wrong with that, in my opinion. I’m now 45, but I feel more confident and more attractive than when I was 20.
WOMEN HAVE TAKEN OVER from men the right to wear shirts, jeans, and short hair. And not at all because they want to seem strong. It’s just sexy. ♦
