Although not a conventional beauty (famously saying she doesn’t like her “face, nose, hair, mouth…everything”) I love her almost Liv Tyler Lord of The Rings character elfin-like features – haunting

Again, like Marion Cotillard, she epitomises Parisian cool with her faded denims, trusty leather jackets and boots…ever the musician

I love that she pulls off laid back off-duty looks more so than red carpet outfits – I think it takes a lot more to be chic in a pair of jeans and a tee than in a designer gown!
