I’ve always considered Françoise Hardy the epitome of the cool French girl. She was cool even when the profitable myth of the cool, stylish, effortlessly chic French girl didn’t exist. She was one of those girl who unconsciously started this myth, indeed.
Françoise Hardy is also a great source of inspiration for every girl who like bangs. Every time I look for “bangs” on Pinterest, Hardy and Bardot appear in the search result.
Don’t you think that what Hardy wears in this photo is something a girl like Alexa Chung would wear? A Victorian style blouse, shorts or a miniskirt, texture tights and boots, isn’t this an it-girl outfit? For what it means, of course 😉
