One of my favorite blogs to do was my style crushes post back in June, so I thought I ought to make that a more regular feature. I have so many style crushes, you see, so there's plenty of delicious material from which to choose. It would have been easy to begin with Audrey, but Catherine Deneuve feels right for summer. When I was a girl back in the seventies, I remember her doing commercials for Oil of Olay. "Come closer," she'd say, "Closer still. I'm Catherine Deneuve." The camera would pull in tighter and tighter until her face filled the screen, and I thought she was the most glamorous person I'd ever seen.
Lovely at every age, she's been the muse for Yves Saint Laurent, and the face for companies like Chanel, L'Oreal, and MAC. She is also an activist for the rights of children, AIDS patients, and victims of land mines, among many other charitable causes. Style, substance, and ageless grace. I adore her. Whose style do you love?
