If I was a fashion designer, and not just a fashion commentator, Charlotte Gainsbourg would be my muse. There is something of the Elmira Gulch about her and never-the-less, this woman is beautiful. She is a conundrum. Breathy Anglo-French accent, long limbs and sulky looks make a seductive picture that has beguiled the likes of Balenciaga. Though I cannot now shift the harrowing character she plays in Lars von Trier's film Antichrist there is something of the unearthly about her that I will always see as highly romantic whether she is singing, acting or modelling.
