A leading fashion icon between France and the United Kingdom. From her beginnings, Jane Birkin liked to provoke the public in a time that was still very conservative. Like in the 60s and 70s when she posed scantily dressed in the window of an art gallery, under the eye of photographer Michael Webb.
If mini-skirts were popularized relatively late, Jane Birkin is one of the stars who made it possible to democratize it. And, the Briton continued to wear them for a long time, as evidenced by her daring styles to discover in our slideshow.
A sublime silhouette that will catch the eye of the cameras. In the mid-1960s when she shot her first film, Jane Birkin was already taking one of the poses that would make her a sex symbol. If she was very attractive, it was also thanks to her natural beauty. Often with little makeup and loose hair, the young woman exuded a disarming charm.
In Don Juan 73 or if Don Juan were a woman, director Roger Vadim brought together two icons of the time: Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot. BB plays the femme fatale, while Jane plays Clara, a fragile young woman. The duo is successful and will make all men (and women) green with envy.
On the music side, Jane Birkin pushed the song solo. When she is on stage, she is just as seductive as on screen. But, she generally sang with her companion Serge Gainsbourg. The two lovers experience success separately, then together. They came out in 1976, the title Je t’aime, moi non plus. A subversive piece talking about sex, and in particular sodomy, considered obscene in public opinion. But, it will mark all the same the spirits, and will remain one of the most famous hits of the two singers.
If Jane Birkin is known for the almost childish look she had when she was young, she can also turn into a femme fatale in the blink of an eye. The proof through the 10 sexiest photos of the famous singer and actress.
