Jane Birkin as Mom.

May 19, 2010

Cousin Casey nailed it this morning. Jane Birkin is/was a style genius. I do believe if there ever was a single fashion icon for me, it would be Miss Birkin. Although there is no shortage of images her showing her perfect, pared down, South of France style, my favorites are the ones of her with her kids (she has three daughters). Here are a few. And a cute one of her pregnant. :-)OK, raise you hand if you want to look just like her!

p.s. casey found out where you can get her famous bag (the basket, not the Hermes one!)....right here.

  7. That's so interesting you did a post about her... I've always thought you look like her daughter, Charlotte Gainesbourg. :)

  8. My hand is raised also, but I do agree she to thin & even looks unhealthy. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be thinner, but if I were that thin my husband would have me to a dr.

  9. I agree with "Anonymous" -- I'll take just like her, but with several more pounds, please. Great style, but looking emaciated in a few of those shots.

  10. I think it's more about the laid back, seemingly effortless style she emanates rather than the rail thin body she has.

  12. You DO look like her! And yes, what a lifestyle. And to have the bag named after her...no wonder it's a big bag. She had a lot of stuff to tote around.

  13. um, hello! you do look just like her! I have always liked her too. I even liked the Birkin bag before it was cool!

  14. She is gorgeous, and her style is perfect!! But, what is up with that last photo of her in tiny cut-off shorts holding a very young baby? How can anyone have thighs that small right after giving birth? Unbelievable. Doesn't seem too healthy, although some people are just like that so I won't jump to assumptions :)

  18. ugh, sorry but the bikini picture is pure anorexia (actually all of them are) but she is a natural beauty with great style..there's a reason her name comes up most often on style icon lists

  19. *virtual raise of hand*

    Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures.

  20. So naturally beautiful. Love her simple style.

  21. She is beautiful. I think she is just genetically skinny. I am 5.8 and weight 120 pounds. My weight is the same for the last 10 years even after the pregnancy. And I have healthy eating habits. All my family members are skinny. I wanted to put some extra pound so badly but no luck. I think she is just the same type. Her daughters are skinny as well.

    Thank you for sharing so many pictures of her.

  22. She's still stylish even though she's older than my Mum. I met her and her daughter in Paris 9 years ago (one of my friends was Charlotte's and Yvan's children's Nanny) and though they were both so stylish. Charlotte's son is a stylish little man too.
    Gorgeous pictures!

    I have been so inspired by her since seeing this post- definitely a look and attitude to strive for!!

  24. my hand is raised! remember last night our discussion re "what's your dream style?" that is it!

  25. My hand is raised high. I want to be her when I grow up...oh wait I already am grown up. Oh well a girl can dream!

  26. Way too skinny to be a real womanly beauty, but I guess she has a cute, stylish, girl look. A few more curves, and a few less bones showing, she'd be on the money.
    Her sense of fashion is so very effortless, clean, and fun.

  27. Beautiful photos. My 2 little boys are amazing swimmers, they are always in the pool. Now they are doing saumersaults and backflips.. scary. Enjoy your beautiful little baby.
