femme du jour: Charlotte Gainsbourg

Lately our office playlist has consisted of Charlotte Gainsbourg's 2010 album IRM on repeat. It's the perfect thing to make the day breeze by. So as a thank you to Charlotte for keeping our ears happy, we're dedicating our next style icon post to her.

The daughter of French musical icon Serge Gainsbourg and beautiful english actress Jane Birkin, Charlotte obviously grew up in a creative and musical environment. Charlotte embodies the casual beauty and understated glamour we've come to expect from classic French beauties. She won us over on screen, starring alongside Gael Garcia Bernal in Michel Gondry's beautiful Science of Sleep, and playing Bob Dylan's jilted lover in I'm Not There. Lately, however, she's been wowing us with her musical prowess, working closely with Beck to record both her first album, 5:55 and last year's release, IRM.

Get Charlotte's carefree Parisian chic with faded skinny jeans, oversized boyfriend shirts, and ladylike loafers.
