Despite their shared birthplace, heyday era, and iconic prominence, Françoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot would have been unlikely friends. In her zenith, Bardot was notoriously provocative and intentionally controversial. Françoise Hardy, on the other hand, battled insurmountable shyness during the peak of her fame. While Brigitte’s four marriages were speckled with publicized affairs, Françoise remains married to her long-time companion Jacques Dutronc.
Personally paradoxical, yes, but the combination of these two style stars made for divine inspiration last week in Paco Rabanne’s runway show. Rich in cobalt and metallics, Rabanne presented a functional, yet instinctive collection for our inner-Parisian -- whichever she may be.
