Fashion lovers — ourselves included — have been going bananas for the amazingness that is Louise Follain. But it’s not just that the French model rocks effortlessly chic, Parisian style. It’s not those shaggy, overgrown bangs, either.
We’re talking about the fact that Follain might just be the doppelganger for Jane Birkin. As media-powerhouses like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue have called to our attention, this modern-day fashion icon is the spitting image of the London-born, Paris-based fashion icon after whom Hermes’ pricey and elitist Birkin bag was named.
Seriously, though — resemblance is so uncanny you’ve gotta see it to believe it:
Now, after taking a good look at Ms. Birkin, prepare to meet Louise Follain. Her self-described French-girl style? “Eclectic.” And the model counts names like Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Chloe Sevigny among her own personal fashion icons. When it comes to beauty? Angelina Jolie. (She clearly has great taste.)
What We Love About This Photo: She’s the type of model whose classic beauty is what minimalism was made for — she’s so effortlessly chic that she doesn’t need adornment. And we’d totally wear that outfit.
What we love about this photo: Minimal makeup, a thick set of lashes, and eye-grazing bangs.
What we love about this photo: She has the type of look that makes an impact. And she also happens to look JUST like Angelina Jolie in this photo.
What we love about this photo: …Other times she resembles Keira Knightley, Olivia Wilde, or a glimpse of Emmy Rossum. Ultimately, though, it’s that she’s got “the look,” that je ne sais quoi, that makes her It-girl material.
What we love about this photo: Not everyone looks like a work of art while doing something as mundane as riding the train. And those statement sleeves? So on-trend.
What we love about this photo: That hair. The fringe. That bone structure. Is it wrong to just say, “her face”?
What we love about this photo: That deconstructed eyeliner? So retro-chic.
What we love about this photo: The vintage feel and color palette. Oh, and that bangin’ red lip.
What we love about this photo: Her timeless beauty. What era are we in? Doesn’t even matter. That’s always beautiful.
What we love about this picture: She makes us want that hairstyle!
What we love about this photo: The laid-back vibes of her messy pony. That and her amazing jawline.
