Femme Fatales #3 & #4

Admittedly, I am cheating today.... I basically have to include two femmes for the price of one today, since I am stretching it a bit here. I know that Jane Birkin is not actually French, she's technically British-born, but I think I can get away with categorizing her as half-French. She acquired the half-French status in the late 60's when she fell hard for a popular Frenchman pop star, Serge Gainsbourg and had a love child with him. She thereafter became a major part of French culture. Her daughter is the talented, Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is undoubtedly French. When she speaks English though, she speaks with her mother's British accent. She's become a modern day muse to many.Here she is looking foxy with her husband, Yvan Ital, who is an Israeli Born-French actor and director. He was Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel to French-Algerian Jewish parents, he grew up in the Paris suburbs.

Just an fyi- the man pictured with Charlotte is not her husband but Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere. She also plays muse to him.

...this is erin of the huntress house by the way!

Hey Erin,

This makes more sense as to why they are looking so good in that photo! CG's husband's is not as sexy as Nicolas Ghesquire that's for sure! I just looked a little closer at some photos. Whoops.
