My current intrigue? The famous & stunning Jane Birkin. Her life was pretty scandelous, albeit interesting... however she is most noteably associated nowadays for inspiring or designing the Hermès Birkin bag. In 1984, on an Air France flight from Paris to London, Jane Birkin pulled her Hermes datebook out of her bag and all her papers fell on the floor. She complained to the passenger sitting next to her that the book should have pockets. That passenger was the chairman of Hermes, Jean-Louis Dumas, and after hearing her complain he created the Birkin bag. What a hot mess she was... however, I can see why she continues to stir up the craze for the handbag to this day.
PS - I heart that hair of hers & her sense of self & style.
