A Chic Bad-Ass.

Even though she is the daughter of the Hermès muse and 60's style icon Jane Birkin and Charlotte Gainsbourg's half-sister, Lou Doillon has a unique and distinct style. Always preserving the chic-ness of her ancestors, Lou inserts some bohemian, grungy-like features in her wardrobe.



I am always amazed by what she wears, and how she looks like she's made no effort to put the outfit together.

Some facts:

She is a model and an actress.
She has a little boy (Marlowe Jack Tiger Mitchell) and she was pregnant with him at the age of 19.
Her father is director Jacques Doillon.
By the time she was 11½, she had tattoos and a stud in her tongue.
She is now 24.
She is the face and muse of Givenchy.
She is French.
Born Sept.1 1982.

i was going to say something illinformed like "wow cannot believe i've never read your amazing blog before", well it turns out you're rather new to the scene (gah, did i just say scene- that sounds sooo hipster ewww haha) so the fact that i haven't read your before isn't too much of a crime. so far i love what i see and i'd love to trade links!

i like your 10 random facts- i don't find you saying you're good at photography arrogant, because isn't it true these days that if you say you're good at simply on thing people deem you a snob? and yet we publish thousands of books annually about selfconfidence haha. you should definitely share some of your fav recipes too :) and i also adore nearly anything designed by luella.

as for this post- i realized i knew nothing about lou doillin, but she is awesome! like your how to "wash things a lot to get the 'worn in' look" LOL!

oh and thanks for the tip on the bigbrother girls on my last post- i'm only and ignorant american here who actually believes anything she sees on facehunter must be real haha
