And the blue ribbon for the chicest, and most lovely, moment in a long time goes to Jane Birkin and her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg, resplendent on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet last month.

Gainsbourg chose her mother as the subject of her directorial debut Jane by Charlotte which premiered at the festival.

They truly are icons of effortless style and the embodiment of the Italian concept of 'sprezzatura', a certain nonchalance and natural, easy sureness. Nothing contrived. That je ne sais quoi.
