The Most Stylish Movie Opening This Weekend? Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life

Poor Shark Night 3D, you never had a prayer.

It’s French. It’s chic. And it’s hitting theaters this weekend! Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life tells the tale of the maverick singer/composer from his days as a boy in Nazi-occupied Paris to his ascent to pop stardom. It’s part history lesson, part flight of fancy (the movie is from acclaimed comic book artist Joann Sfar and features a freakish puppet alter-ego that follows Gainsbourg around) and part fashion eye-candy. That’s because Gainsbourg, as you may know, romanced Juliette Greco (played by Anna Mouglalis), Brigette Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon).

We especially loved Bardot’s leopard coat and thigh-high boots in the film. And we bet this faux-fur option from Guess and these Victor & Rolf lizard-embossed thigh-high boots will have you channeling her sex-bomb aura in no time. More of a Birkin type? No worries. Get her swinging ’60s style with this crochet-detail eyelet dress from 2 B Rych and a vintage basket bag—so many cute options on Etsy.
