Street Style Before Street Style: Catherine Deneuve

We look back at the style of the iconic French actress.

Catherine Deneuve is, arguably, THE poster girl for the French New Wave. It has been announced that she will feature in the 160th anniversary celebrations of Paris' oldest and best-known department store — Le Bon Marché. The whole operation basically sounds like an ode to the best of everything related to Catherine, focusing on her favourite spots on the Left Bank, which is where Le Bon Marché is located. There will be art installations, film screenings and some very expensive box-set illustrations of Catherine by film director Marjane Satrapi (only $1100 USD! — some of the money goes to charity though). 

To celebrate, we look back at Catherine's style, all bouffant hair, mod dresses and perfect pink fur for the evening. She was just as stunning being herself traversing the city with husband David Bailey, at parties with Yves Saint Laurent and on the Cannes red carpet as she was in Belle de Jour and Repulsion.
