OK! So I told you about Audrey Hepburn, now I want you to know about Catherine Deneuve. I love French films. Always have since before I started learning French last semester. I loved her in “Belle de jour”, “The Hunger” and “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg”, which is so colorful and brilliant. Please Netflix, Blockbuster, view online, or go the nearest library to check her films out.

To me, she was the anti Jean Seberg, who is also very cool by the way. Don’t forget to check out her classic movie “Breathless” where she was the first female to wear a t-shirt in a movie. Jean was the bohemian type French woman with pixie cut hair, striped sailor shirt, and black capris. Catherine is more classic French and always wears the best designer clothes. She modeled for Chanel perfume before Keira Knightley and Nicole Kidman. Catherine used to be Yves Saint-Laurent’s muse. He dressed her for the films Belle de jour, La Chamade , La Sirène du Mississipi, and Un flic. She looks best in trench coats and ballet flats. Here is a previous Style Icon post.
