51 FILMS. 5 ALBUMS. 2 VERY FAMOUS PARENTS. 1 OF THE MOST BUZZED-ABOUT BEAUTY COLLABORATIONS OF THE YEAR. No one wears effortless, French-girl beauty quite like Charlotte Gainsbourg. With English actress and singer Jane Birkin and French singer Serge Gainsbourg for parents, it was inevitable that Charlotte would be blessed with the cool gene. A successful singer, songwriter, and actress in her own right, we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in 2017. The mother of three appears in three new films and an album—her fifth—drops in September; all while she’s been quietly working behind the scenes with fellow Frenchman François Nars on his latest limited-edition offering. The MECCA Memo were given a sneak peek at the 15-piece Charlotte Gainsbourg for NARS collaboration and an audience with Charlotte to discuss everything from her understated approach to style and the lessons she learnt from her beauty-icon mother, to her favourite product.
