Mon Égérie: Charlotte Rampling
Who she is:
A British model slash singer slash proper actress, swinging 60’s icon, Charlotte Rampling was who our mothers wanted to be. (Our fathers would not have minded.)
Why we Love her:
The quintessential English Rose, Charlotte has aged naturally and beautifully. She’s the reason we will never get our eyes “done.” She also transcended her “kitten” phase to become a seasoned and highly acclaimed actress. In a “LOOK AT ME!” world, we love that she is almost feline in her attention avoidance.
How she inspired us:
Her maturing gracefully with #nofilters, reminds us that we should look forward to seeing who we actually are. Oh. And her favorite place her bed. (Us too.)
Charity: Many, but smaller local ones in her community.
Why she would love Haiti:
Charlotte loves France and her beaches. She speaks our language, enjoys a peaceful beach spared of glittery hotels, and can’t be bothered with “scenes”. Plus, we would love to show her our solar panels, as she is a staunch supporter of a mitigated carbon footprint.
What piece we want to see her wear Simbi with:
Anything black. Simbi Luxe leathers, may suit best. They are perfect for her “uniform” of the black trouser and smoking suit. Something, but nothing showy.
If we had one question:
Did you ever have your own style Icon? If so, whom?
