Style Icon: Jean Seberg

Jean Seberg might have been American born and bred but she was a Parisian girl at heart. She was immortalised as a style icon in the 1959 French cult film, A Bout de Souffle (Breathless). It was in her role as Patricia Franchini that she sported the cropped cut that made her a style icon.

Seberg’s private life might not have been the happiest but this did not effect her icon status.

He wardrobe – for Breathless – of stripes, pumps and over-sized shirts have a beautifully timeless and French feel to them.
