Effortless Chic-Blast From the Past

As I was thumbing through the August issue of “Town and Country” magazine, I saw an interview with Frederic Fekkai’s wife, Shirin von Wulffen. When asked who her style icon was, she said “Francoise Hardy in the the ‘60s and ‘70s, for her ability to make basics look effortlessly sexy.”

I had heard Francoise Hardy’s name before, but don’t think I’d ever seen pics before. Shirin was right….effortlessly chic is right.  And stunning!!
