EDW: Jeanne Moreau

Jeanne Moureau's finest moment from one of the finest of all French films (whisper it, but I think Le 400 Coups is even better, but still).

For EDW purposes she admirably demonstrates - throughout Jules et Jim - that it's not just what you wear but how you carry it off.

All together now.

Elle avait des bagues à chaque doigt,
Des tas de bracelets autour des poignets,
Et puis elle chantait avec une voix
Qui sitôt m'enjôla

Elle avait des yeux, des yeux d'opale
Qui m'fascinaient, qui m'fascinaient,
Y avait l'ovale d'son visage pâle
De femme fatale qui m'fut fatal.

Incidentally, let's not forget her co-star Basiak (the fellow playing the guitar here) who wrote the song. Fine fellow.

NOTE: This was supposed to go up on Wednesday, as an elegantly dressed Wednesday thing but it - and some other stuff, now deleted - got stuck in the mix.
