n°131/ What Happened to Charlotte?

July 2014

Till then, she was an actress, a singer along with a daughter that turned out to be a wife and a mother. We knew she enjoyed fashion designer Nicolas Ghesquière who asked her to be his discreet Balenciaga muse, posing for him as a close friend, almost behind the scenes, in such an intimate way. The two of them made us think of Givenchy and Hepburn matching friendship with style. But something happened since she's now Louis Vuitton's new model. In the last Fall/Winter 2014-15 campaign, she's posing in the middle of Andrew Wyeth-like meadows and photographed by Annie Leibowitz. She's wearing leather and sexy clothes she would never wear in real life. But advertising doesn't bother with boundaries and limits. And Charlotte Gainsbourg has just turned into another fashion model.
