Sacred “best dressed woman in the world” by the magazine Vanity Fair, Charlotte Gainsbourg has since Effrontée tamed his image and has managed over time to tame her anguish. Actress, singer and fashion icon, the frail Charlotte is 36 years a fulfilled woman, eternally adolescent.
It was in London that little Charlotte was born. His parents, Gainsbourg and Birkin are the superstars of the time, they have the talent and beauty. However, the bad reputation of the latter exposes the little girl with jeers from his classmates. Charlotte therefore prefers to be alone, and gradually decline was about herself. At 12, she obtained her parents to become resident in Switzerland … It was at this period that the girl made her first steps before the camera, in the movie “Music and Lyrics” Eli Chouraqui.
It is 14 years that the public really discovered in “Shameless” by Claude Miller, she plays a girl introverted and anxious.long been the partner with the tortured character. The role earned him a César, it will look for the hair in the eye, half slovenly, authentic and crying as completely capsized his father’s eyes.
In 1986, she performed a duet with Gainsbourg “Lemon Incest” which raises the scandal. Soon after, she turns in the film that he wrote to her: “Charlotte Forever”. An album of the same name follows the singer has written all the songs Charlotte interpreter.
In 1988, “The Little Thief” by Claude Miller earned her a César nomination, the public is again seduced by the charisma of this savage girl in the heightened sensitivity. Charlotte, despite being familiar shootings, still does not his image. “I hated to see me on the screen. I was full of complexes.”Yet this almost pathological shyness does not prevent Charlotte continuing.
This anxiety is not acting, but to experience everything around celebrity. She wanted to be forgotten after leaving the cinema … In 1990, she is 19 and turns “To the world” with a certain Yvan Attal, dark actor she quickly falls in love. For her, the male beauty born of virility, manhood that has nothing to do with bulging muscles, but that is more of a hidden violence. A beauty made of raw neglected…
masculine ideal that proves to be a condensed style of his father, which she found a version totally acceptable with Yvan Attal. A year later, Serge Gainsbourg is extinguished, leaving Charlotte write his life alone. The films follow: “The Cement Garden”, “Grosse Fatigue”, “Anna Oz,” “Jane Eyre” and “Suspicion” Charlotte … there keeps this teenager and tormented inappropriate picture. In 1997, Charlotte became mother of a little Ben.
Not until 1999 and the film “log” for Charlotte finally breaks his image and make the public discover the full extent of his acting talent, interpreting a young single assertive and full of life. This role is light years from the ethereal image of his debut, the critically incense and she won the César second of his career.
This turning professional is accompanied by a public mutation of the young woman: she says a little more, is a little less rare in the media and says being a good living … His shyness – that turned often in silence – suddenly becomes charming because Charlotte suffered the most, it is part of it, and that’s all. She runs two television movies, and blossomed under the leadership of her husband in “My Wife is an Actress” and “They married and had many children.” It reveals a playful Charlotte Gainsbourg, intense and seductive.
Between the two films, a little Alice just enlarge the family, which did not prevent Charlotte during her months of pregnancy to land a role in the Atlantic “21 Grams” by Alejandro González Iñárritu. From “One the other hand remains” Berri in “Lend me your hand” Eric Lartigau with Alain Chabat through “Lemming”, Charlotte stands out as a wholly actress of French cinema.
And not just because it also emulated abroad: it is soon find alongside Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere and Julianne Moore in “I’m Not There,” Todd Haynes film dedicated to Bob Dylan. If an actress won at Charlotte Gainsbourg in a more or less natural, it was she who chose to embark on the song. His first album, “Charlotte Forever”, recorded at 15, could very well remain a dead letter…
However, music is an intrinsic part of it: in 1994, she joined the troupe Enfoirés, and it recurs in 2001. She sings a duet on the album of Etienne Daho and 2006 happens what should happen: Charlotte fate “5:55”, an album entirely in English, sophisticated pop designed by Air and co-written by Jarvis Cocker and Nigel Godrich. The young woman did not want to sing in French, because for her it is too tied to his father.
This album goes perfectly, because even if she did not write the text, the two songwriters drew heavily from what Charlotte scribbled in his notebooks during the preparation of the album. The musical universe of Charlotte? A mix of paternal memories, air Beatles 45s Brassens heard in the country house of Jane Birkin … On his iPod coexist Radiohead, West Side Story and Devendra Banhart.
Beyond its status as a singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg is the perfect embodiment of the fashion icon: glamor, style and grace. Yet the young woman would have almost no conscience. In 2003, Gérard Darel no mistake by choosing Charlotte as Egeria. He claims “new elegance without artifice”, which fits perfectly with what emanates from the young woman. The campaign was a success and since Charlotte continues to radiate its presence nonchalant seasons Gérard Darel.
This new feature has forced Gainsbourg to indulge a little more about his relationship with fashion. It was during the filming of “Shameless”, in contact with the costume designer Jacqueline Bouchard she realizes clothes and their pleasure potential. For her role, she only wears worn, she falls in love. For several years, she will cover only second-hand clothes, rejecting too brittle side, not skated pretty new clothes.
Jane She wears jeans and comprises a look very 40s fashion? She loves watching from afar on the other … For her, it’s another story. Of course, working with prestigious photographers for Darel campaigns flattered, but she did not mean to assiduous Parisian catwalks or Vogue editions. View style, the young woman would be the type to not follow trends, while succeeding against all odds to be in tune with the times.
That’s the magic Gainsbourg: be so oneself that one would like to copy everything, so that the secret lies not in the clothes, but in that little something extra that makes Charlotte deserves its iconic status … as for clothes, Charlotte is the absolute minimum: for a long time she did not leave her Burberry trench coat and jeans leg-bottoms. Never dresses, except on red carpets and Balenciaga.
Moreover with Nicolas Ghesquière is a true story of friendship: it was he who helped to shape a new image, on the occasion of the release of his album. It made him adopt skinny, tailored shirts and small leather jackets. A good alternative to the trench and leg eph ‘she said, although she struggles to discard. But she trusted her friend stylist she loves the creations that seem to have been devised for girls like her.
If Nicolas Ghesquière advises and orients a minimum in his choices, Charlotte is the basis of his style to his mother. Thanks to her, Charlotte was quick rhymes and natural beauty. Besides his sister, Kate Barry, a true passionate of fashion, his education by offering every Christmas designer items from Helmut Lang to the most avant-garde Japanese designers.
Inimitable and disarming simplicity, Charlotte Gainsbourg, although worshiping limitless discretion, can not help but radiate and inspire…
