Lou Doillon is IT

24 year old Lou Doillon is my current obsession, the French model and actress is the daughter of director Jacques Doillon and actress Jane Birkin, she's also the half sister of Charlotte Gainsbourg, so all in all pretty cool. Can you imagine Christmas in her house?

According to her wikipedia page she had tattoos and a tongue piercing at the age of 11 and a half, crikey.

What is most interesting to me as a fash fan is the fact that she is the face and muse of Givenchy and has recently become creative partner to Lee Cooper jeans for the next three years.

Her style is rock chick with a high fashion edge, think dark denim with lace tops, bowler hats with very expensive dresses, messy hair and a huge smile.

Lou has designed 16 pieces for Lee Cooper including high waisted jeans, t shirts and sweaters, citing her main influence as Oliver Twist.

Check out her Lee collection on the runway here:
