Fashion Inspiration: Charlotte Gainsbourg

We know we've mentioned her before, but there are a few very good reasons Ms. Gainsbourg is worth mentioning as often as we choose. Apart from having the usual French fashionista je ne sais quoi, Gainsbourg seems to possess this without trying too hard. She doesn't pout or stand with an exaggerated arched back. She is effortlessly chic without being constantly aware of it. We thank her for being the absolutely necessary balance to the Lohans and Hiltons of the world: celebrated unconventional beauty amongst formulaic carbon copies. So, Ms. Gainsbourg, we salute you with our outfits of the day. We aspire to your type of je ne sais quoi...

tank- DressCodes
Jeans- FCUK
shoes- Payless
