Girl Crush

Through all the talk of girl crushes here on Cup of Jo, my ne plus ultra is French actress/singer Charlotte Gainsbourg. Alex thinks she looks like a young Keith Richards, but every time I see a photograph of her, my heart swells. She is my style icon and all-around role model for being a strong and awesome woman.

I think she's gorgeous! I have a girl crush on her too.

Mary said...

she is soooo photogenic, it's unbelievable.. when I see her on film I am not as amazed as I am by her on pictures. strange.

alice said...

She's the perfect example of how beauty doesn't necessarily come from your physical attributes.

I'll go with you on this 'girl crush' :)

Chelsea said...

One of my favorites...

dianamuse said...

Hah! Keith Richards. You have to admit, that's funny. She reminds me of Francoise Hardy.

karina said...

she is very stylish in an effortless and very personal way.
She is a style icon for me too.

I think she is very pretty in a European kind of way. Very interesting and stylish and has an allure about her that makes her more fascinating which ends up making her look more beautiful. That top picture is the best I have ever seen her look. She just emanates Frenchness. :)

Mary said...

what's a european beauty? No offense, just asking... do you mean something more "edgy" since america is more mainstream?! I'd say that's not true

mommythe said...

these are nice photos of her

Michelle said...

Oh, I think she's just gorgeous. Just effortlessly gorgeous. I do think the Keith Richards comment is hilarious, though! I don't see it but it sure got a good laugh out of me...

Martha said...

Check out Charlotte's portrayal of Jane Eyre...1996 movie version. She was wonderful. One scene has her looking at herself in the mirror and feeling so insecure.

She's always exquisite I think, so fragile and lithe. But I don't know a single guy who finds her cute/attractive...

C.P. said...

She's great! And her music is as gorgeous as she is; her song 5:55 has been on my playlist for a while now. If you haven't heard it, you should definitely check it out. So breathy and melodic.

Joanna Goddard said...

wow, she might be the ultimate girl's girl (vs. guy's girl)...

Kate said...

Agreed. I could listen to 5:55 on repeat all day long. le sigh.

erica said...

i'll have to ask my husband if he finds her attractive. i think she's one of the most beautiful and interesting artists around. it doesn't hurt that embodies my ideal: willowy, elegant, and insouciant.

Bella said...

I think she is amazing!!! Especially in Gondrys movie Science of sleep.

Kara said...

I agree, much love! She is absolutely lovely and I kind of want to be her, if that includes her characters apartment from The Science of Sleep.

Joanna Goddard said...

her apt in the science of sleep was SO amazing!! i had forgotten about that...

and kate, i heart your "le sigh." :)

Jess said...

nope. you are right. she is gorgeous. her voice is gorgeous. her energy is gorgeous. i barely looked at gael garcia bernal in the science of sleep. i think that says a lot.

amy korngiebel said...

she doesn't make me swoon, but i am a fan of hers and i definitely think she possesses a sexuality and comfort with herself that is alluring.
i also dig that your style icon is a little off the beaten path.

jakubowski said...

she isnt pretty, but I too have had a huge crush on her for past 4 months... and I lost her CD, I need to replace that...

Czina said...

she is not beautiful. but she is charming, that's more than beautiful i guess.

i have the same feeling about her as you have.

Lucy said...

she is not beautiful?? you people are insane in the membrane.

Vain and Vapid said...

She was so great in Science of Sleep. I don't think that she is a classic beauty but she is a talented actress and has really great style and energy that it makes her beautiful.

Emma said...

Well, I've seen her in real life, and she's actually rather average... No! I'm lying! She made my heart flutter, my mouth was all dry, my palms clammy, i mumbled hello and ran! Charlotte's the love of my life...

Lauren Kilberg said...

I'm right there with you on this one. I love her. She is classically beautiful and absolutely worthy of a girl crush.

corine said...

She is a paradox. She isn't so pretty and she does look like a young keith richard, but she is fabulous, graceful like a swan and her acting brings me to tears. I guess i caught the bug too.

Rent if you can one of her first movies (she was a kid) called 'la petite voleuse.' It's really iconic.

Joanna Goddard said...

emma, your comment made me laugh out loud :)

Lyla said...

I haven't seen her movies or heard her music, but she extrudes that je ne sais quoi charm beautiful women have.

I heard that Nicolas Ghesquiere likes women with a bit of androgyny, and that's why he chose her for Balenciaga's fall campaign.

bronwyn said...

I love her! She not pretty in the traditional sense. She has a unique beauty that is much more interesting. Add to that charm, elegance and vulnerability... Total swoon! I think girls love her because we all want to be her bff.

fashionista said...

i agree - she is subtly stunning. i love how her hair is always tousled and she always looks as if she might've just walked in from the outdoors... peacefully beautiful.

makes me jealous. ;)

b. said...

i'm shocked that nobody has mentioned her father. he was a highly unattractive man, but women loved him. gorgeous women. charlottes's mother, jane birkin. and brigitte bardot. what a knockout.
serge gainsbourg is one of my favorite musicians of all time. his voice is one of the sexiest i've ever heard...and his music is hypnotic. give him a listen. there's also a modern tribute album to his best songs. listen to it, too.

AnastasiaC said...

oh yes! she's gorgeous and talented of my style icons for sure!!

ambika said...

I loved 5:55. Not sure what my boyfriend thinks of her looks but I'm curious now to see if he'd say anything about a young Keith Richards.

Paul Pincus said...

love those lines / scene that charlotte delivers so brilliantly from the cement garden...

Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots, because it's OK to be a boy, but for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, because you think that being a girl is degrading. But secretly you'd love to know what it's like, wouldn't you? What it feels like for a girl?

feather said...

Me too -- she's gorgeous, but she also has always struck me as really smart and classy. What more do you need to qualify for the girlcrush status?

Graziella said...

I love her too!!!! I've been listening a lot to 5:55 lately...she's gorgeous!

Luiza said...

I love her long straggly hair and scruffy style... reminds me of me!

thetiniestspark said...

SHE'S MY FAVORITE, TOO!!!! i have a bizarre attraction to french films about infidelity, pretty much all of which star her. lerv me some gainsbourg. and heck yes blog friends now!! : ) too bad i want to repost everything from your blog onto mine right this very second, starting with that fantastic 'throwing myself at men' series!

My Inner French Girl said...

Bonjour. Charlotte Gainsbourg is my style and beauty role model. She's not conventionally beautiful, but who wants the same look as all the runway and print models out there? Charlotte is brilliant and phenomenally talented and has a unique style that's only hers. If only more women would emulate her desire to be her own true self!

Merci for the great photos!

Charlotte is definitely not a conventional beauty, but I adore her style and I find her completely beautiful.

I love her in movies (Jane Eyre, The Science of Sleep), she has that contradictory character to her. Fragile yet strong, Interesting/edgy-look yet exquisite and so on, so forth.

She's a feast to my eyes :sigh:

Do you know her Dad was one of the greatest French artist ever ?
If you're a kind of French addict, just listen it...
So romantic, isn't it ?

Aletta said...

Have to claim her for us Brits, she was born in London, her mother is the actress Jane Birkin (the bags are named after her) and she has an English accent! She does live in Paris though... :O)
