Soft and delicate in pale silk at Cannes Film Festival, we think Lou can pull of fairy-esque prettiness just as well as her trademark leather and lace
It’s going to be hard to come back down to Earth after yesterday’s Royal Wedding madness (didn’t Kate Middleton look beautiful, just like a 21st century Grace Kelly?) but, alas, life goes on, and it’s time that we tidy our Union Jack bunting away. Our thoughts are travelling back to Paris today to take a look at one of France’s most beautiful, rock and roll fashion enigmas – Lou Doillon, daughter of style icon Jane Birkin and one of Karl Lagerfeld’s fabulous couture-clad harem.
Always seen in attendance at Chanel’s most exclusive dinners, cocktail parties and launches, and often hanging off the arm of Herr Lagerfeld himself, the actress is a strong patron of Chanel and lends the label’s designs attitude and edge in bucketfuls.With her shaggy brunette hair, French smile and razor-sharp cheekbones, Doillon’s is a face that you couldn’t mistake anywhere whether it’s at a Vogue party or in the front rows at Paris Fashion Week. She is, by the way, always at the front row at PFW – we want this girl’s life so much! Oh, and did we mention that she is the muse for Givenchy?
So many celebrities at the moment try hard to work the European bohemian look, but it is obvious from Lou’s family roots that this is one girl that doesn’t have to try hard at all.
With Jane Birkin as her mother and French director Jacques Doillon, it’s obvious that this is one actress with first-hand experience with the bohemian lifestyle. We’re completely in love with her nonchalant laid-back style, and it’s clear to see why Karl is too. Check out our gallery for our favourite Lou Doillon looks.
