Ahhh . . . the wonderful Audrey Tautou, whom many of you may not have heard until she played Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in Coco avant Chanel. A native of Beaumont (France), it was only natural that she be pinned a protege aesthetically speaking to the great Chanel herself. So what makes this bell a M.I.S.S approved sexy lady? Her look is always ‘effortless’. She looks like it only took her 5 minutes to get ready in the morning and still looks like a million dollars. From her demure stare to her girl-next-door like dimples, Tautou has inspired us all to look past what society means to make us feel is ‘sexy’, showing the world that you don’t need to wear a mini skirt or 15 inch heels to have sex appeal.
Here are a few recommended items to bring out that “Tautou” in all of us!
- Chanel Lipstick in Rouge
If you haven’t already caught onto the Chanel Rouge bug, then I’m going to have to wonder where you’ve been. First and foremost, this color works for everyone; It’s classic, sexy and for any of you who have tried it, you know very well that Chanel’s lipsticks keep your puckers hydrated all day.
- Smashbox Liquid Liner
Audrey like to keep things low-key when it comes to playing with her eyes, so I would just suggest a black liquid liner like this one here. If you feel naked with out any eyeshadow, just add an extra thick line for a dramatic look.
- Coco Chanel Parfum Bottle
Let’s try something different here – let’s not go with a spray but a parfum bottle instead. It’s very French and so is she. Voila!
- Comme des Garçons Black Glossy Wallet
Go simple but elegant – pick up a well-made item with an avant-garde twist that isn’t too flashy. This CDG wallet comes with a bright pink or teal inner lining; the rest is up to you.
- Pewter Cut Out Brogue Shoes
These wing-tip flats are a perfect alternative to a heel and still make you very fahionable.
- Dirty French Book
Pardon my Francais, but if you’re going to learn any language, it’s always nice to know that you could say a few ‘off-beat’ things – just don’t get too vulgar. Sexy ladies are classy!
- HerCut The Bob Catalyst Hair Product
Last but definitely not least, you should never neglect your hair. Does this mean that you need to work mounds of styling mousse or hairspray? No!!! In fact, every sexy lady should avoid that. This product is great for getting your bob to do what it should do – look fabulous and sexy just like you!
