Gainsbourg girls

I know it’s only October but the November issues of all the mags are out and that’s making me feel prematurely Christmassy. Which of course brings me to the news that Charlotte Gainsbourg is to guest edit the December issue of French Vogue. Oh joy! After the delight that was the Sofia Coppola issue (which was what, three years ago?) followed by the disapppointments of the subsequent Kate Moss and John Galliano issues, I’m practically gagging for this to be good. But how could it not be? Charlotte Gainsbourg has the same effortless finesse and youthful chic possessed by La Coppola and a similar understated taste. Maybe, just maybe she’ll get Jane Birkin and Lou Doillon on board and make it a family affair?
