Fashion Icon Friday: Catherine Deneuve
This week’s fashion icon is the chic French actress, Catherine Deneuve.
Catherine started acting at the age of 11 in various French films and quickly became a French icon of beauty. Catherine has appeared in a variety of American films, including The Hunger with David Bowie and Susan Sarandon. This brought her recognition across the world, becoming known as one of the most stylish and beautiful women of all time.
She was a muse to the late Yves Saint Laurent, frequently appearing in his clothes for her many red carpet appearances. YSL also dressed Catherine for her films such as Belle de Jour and La Chamade. In the late 1970’s, she was the face of Chanel No. 5. In the 1980’s, Catherine created her own perfume line called “Deneuve,” later adding glasses, shoes, and jewelry to the collection.
In 2006, MAC cosmetics used Catherine as inspiration for its “Beauty Icon” series. While Catherine is considered a 1960’s fashion and style icon, she still remains in the industry, most recently appearing in Louis Vuitton ads.
Over time, she has kept her style: chic, feminine, yet sexy, always with a hint of French flair.
