Style Icon: Jane Birkin

    Jane Birkin is the original English It-Girl. She blasted open a space in our hearts for the Alexa Chung type girls we love today. She killed with her wide-eyed gaze peeking through her wispy chestnut bangs. She and long-time lover Serge Gainsbourg reshaped fashion in the 60s and 70s; hitting the streets in matching all-sequin frocks and their signature pea coats. Jane, herself, broke the fashion rules in see-through mini dresses, her signature basket, and her overall cool, bohemian style. To this day the world cannot get enough of the lovely Ms. Birkin. And who could blame them?
