The Ye-Ye Style Icon - Francoise Hardy
French star, Francoise Hardy, is known not only for her beautiful voice, but also her amazing fashion sense.
Aside from her striking, natural Parisian look, Hardy was the cover girl of 1960’s “cool”. Mixing different elements of mod style, with accessible and simple trends, she became the muse for many.
Francoise Hardy embodied the ultimate girl next-door look that even attracted the eye of musical geniuses like Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie.
In the height of her fame, Hardy became a cover girl for Vogue and other magazines, which lead to her wearing some of the newest fashions from Paco Rabanne and Yves Saint Laurent. Since, she has even inspired Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquiere, with their Spring 2011 line.
Looking back on such a beauty is motivation to emulate her style by taking timeless vintage pieces and paring them with modern trends.
