Françoise Hardy on a Honda, 1969. French singer who perfectly embodied the sultry, melancholy and reserved femme fatale. She influenced the fashion of her time, inspiring Balenciaga RTW Collection in 2005. Visit http://www.style.com/F2005RTW-BALENCIA
One of the many men she managed to escape from was Bob Dylan, who in an infatuated poem to Hardy wrote about his fantasy of her:
piles of lovers
lay themselves on their books. boats.
clothed in curly mustaches
float on the benches
blankets of tourists
in bright red nylon shirts
with straw hats of ambassadors
In 1994, she collaborated with the British pop group Blur for their "La Comedie" version of "To The End"
