Parisian Chic

The other night I went to see Café De Flore, a film that was equal parts beautiful, annoying and unusual, and starred the enigmatic Vanessa Paradis. While this film saw her cast as a tired single mother in early '70s Paris, all dark-circled eyes, tied-back hair, practical shoes and frumpy cardigans, in real life she's a total babe.

Cool things about her:
- If you look at her for a while, she’s like a hybrid of some of the world’s most beautiful women all rolled into one – Kate Moss, Alicia Silverstone (hey, it was the 90s!), Heather Graham, maybe even a touch of Leighton Meester...
- She models, she sings (admittedly pretty badly), she acts
- She wears mostly black, but likes a bit of sparkle
- She smiles a lot 
- She doesn’t give much away
- Her surname really is Paradis, which is 'heaven' in French
- She looks almost exactly the same as she did 20 years ago
- She's the epitome of effortless Parisian chic
- Her hair. A bohemian dream
- She's been the face of Chanel and Miu Miu and is a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld
- She's collaborated with Serge Gainsbourg 
- She owns an island in the Bahamas with Johnny Depp... her boyfriend and father of her children

I’d still like to fix her teeth, which I know is not the right thing to say, but there it is. 

Channel her look with perfectly tousled hair via Bumble and Bumble Texture Creme, a smokey Chanel eye, a classic black blazer like this Isabel Marant Oscar style, or a cool leather biker jacket.
