Icon! Jane Birkin

I have decided i want to do certain features that can be expected on my blog. One will be 'icon!' where i do a post on my current icon with a short bio and masses of pics

So for my very first 'icon!' haha, the epitome of the 60s girl ... Jane Birkin

Jane Mallory Birkin was born on the 14th of December 1946, in London. 

Birkin emerged in the swinging 60s in London, starring as one of the models in the controversial 1966 film 'Blowup'.

In 1968, Birkin went to France to audition for the lead female role in 'Slogan'. She got the role and played alongside Serge Gainsbourg, who became her husband and collaborator.

In 1969, she and Gainsbourg released the song 'Je t'aime... moi non plus' ('i love you ... me neither'), which caused a scandal for its sexual explicitness. It was 
a commercial success all over Europe. 

She has three daughters, Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon.
