Charlotte Gainsbourg is a muse for Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Balenciaga, and it completely makes sense when you see her wearing the brand’s clothing. Balenciaga just looks right on Charlotte, and that’s evident in her look at the New York Film Festival where she’s promoting the Lars Von Trier film Melancholia (which also features Alexander Skarsgard and a buzz-worthy performance by Kirsten Dunst – do you really need any more reasons to go see it?). Needless to say, the Fashion Spot forum members were fans of Charlotte’s ensemble.
“She looks fierce. No one wears Balenciaga better than Charlotte,” dajrekshn posted.
“She’s probably the only person who could make me like those Balenciaga pants, she wears them perfectly,” Melly5525 admitted. “Loving the sexy hair and eyes,” she added.
Newprincesita was also on board with the look: “She’s looking great and she makes those pants work like nobody,” she wrote. “Loooove the eye makeup and the hair is super lustrous. She is glowing.”
I think the takeaway here is to adopt the ease of Charlotte’s “comfortable in my own skin” Parisian vibe. Also, don’t wear those sparkly Balenciaga pants unless you are Charlotte Gainsbourg, because apparently she’s the only person on Earth that they look good on.
