Introducing Style Icon: Charlotte Rampling

The epitome of the 60's and 70's goddess, Charlotte Rampling has a look that is timeless.  You could be mistaken for thinking some of her images are straight from the pages of current magazines as they exhibit a style and feeling that is still in fashion and very now.

As a style era- I adore the 60's and 70's for so many different reasons. I  just wish I was alive then to actually be a part of it! With the 70's influence in AW2012 fashion, I was delighted when I discovered this amazing style icon. 

Photographed by legends such as Helmut Newton, David Bailey and Jurgen Teller here is a small selection of some of my favourite Charlotte images:

In addition to her modelling, Charlotte has been famed for her acting in quite interesting and sometimes controversial roles in both English, French and Italian cinema. So she's not just a pretty face, to speak all these languages, requires talent!!

A look that has inspired many collections and editorials to this day

a recent editorial in VS Magazine SS11 that could easily have been inspired by the Night Porter
There is also speculation from the fashion world that Louis Vuitton's AW2012 Show was inspired by the Night Porter. Judging by these pictures below, I think they're on the right track there!

I don't want to wish our (non existent) Summer away.... but with such strong, decadent looks as these in store for Winter, Makeup Marple says- "BRING IT ON!"
