This is Jean Seberg, she was an American actress from the 60's who went to France and found her fame there. More than any other woman she epitomised the stripey top and capri pant look. I absolutely love this, it's so easy, so casual and yet so glamorous, little flat ballerina pumps and you're done.
Of course, yet again this is Audrey Tatou playing Coco, in the classic Breton. More than anything I love the way that such quintessentially masculine clothing can be made to look so beautiful in such an understated way.
The pinnacle is of course Chanel's Breton top here with the paperbag waist trousers and a beret, maybe a bit much for the local supermarket but if this was in my wardrobe then I'd be wearing it to put the bins out. I don't know how much this costs and to be honest I don't really want to depress myself by finding out but I've just seen some really great ones in H&M, including a really cute one with a lace bib on the front. They were only £12.99 and as well as the black and the navy blue there's a great red striped one to add a bit of colour.
Just to show that it's not only for the girls, here's Picasso showing not only could he chuck some paint but that he was also a bit of a stylish old fella. I think he may need some anti-biotics for those fingers though, they look like they're a bit swollen.
I also wanted to show you that in even on the football field the French just can't get away from being ever so stylish. They've just come up with a new away strip, no-one else could ever get away with this.
