The 63-Year-Old French Woman With the Coolest Style
Age is but a number, however, we can't say we know many 63-year-old women who are down with wearing velvet minidresses with 10 denier tights and platforms, or mismatched earrings, or a sheer dress on a night out. In fact, we don't know many 30-year-olds who would always feel confident to do as such. But that's where Isabelle Huppert, the award-winning French actress and our current obsession, breaks the mould for every generation.
Naturellement, there's a lot to be said for being French. If you're lucky enough to be one of those gallic women—where a certain insouciance and effortlessness carries you through a lifetime of outfits and photo opps—many pieces, trends and styling ideas are but a doddle. We've seen it with Jane Birkin (still influencing our wardrobes at the age of 70), say, or Vanessa Paradis (we can't pull off half the things this 44-year-old chooses, even on a regular day).
We were already set to write about Madame Huppert after seeing a stellar run of award season looks (hands down, she was the best dressed at the BAFTAs), and then she made ultra-chic appearances at Paris Fashion Week, sitting in the front row at both Chloé and Louis Vuitton. So before we shift into our full-on fan-girl mode, have a look through Isabelle Huppert's best style moments of 2017, and see what lessons you can incorporate into your own closet.
