Sixties style icon: Francoise Hardy.

Francoise Hardy was born in Paris and was a popular French singer and actress in the 1960's. You may recognize her from the song "Tous les garcons et les filles" from Moonrise Kingdom. (You know that scene when they are dancing on the beach? That's the one!) If you thought that song was catchy then we definitely recommend you checking out the rest of her albums. She has such a beautiful voice that is so easy and fun to dance to! Not only do we love her voice, but we also can't get enough of her effortless casual 1960's style. I mean with the thick bangs, winged eyeliner, and bold stripes, what's not to love?

A perfect example of her excellent hair.

Such a beautiful candid shot.

We can't decide which look we love more!

Gah! How incredible is this dress!

Francoise, not only are you talented but you're a natural beauty.

  1. I am 'obsessed' with her as well. Shall I give you guys a wonderful tip? Check out her song: Dis-lui non. That outfit! Wonderful. And I simply love the song, I keep on listening to it on repeat.
    I have bought her biography and I am going to live in Paris at the end of January and will be blogging from there and will be living the Frenchy Paris life :) and so I thought that would be the right place to read her biography. I actually don't know a lot about her, so I am looking forward to it. I love it that you guys have made a blogpost about her!
