Jane Birkin-Inspired Wedding

Not all of us can be winsome hippie models with Hermes bags named after us, but you can't blame us for trying, right? For the bride brave enough to forge her own path, trading glamour for understated beachy style, take inspiration from the wedding of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.

Look at this pretty hippie chick!

Jane looked like a serious supermodel in her slinky crochet knit dress, accented with a kind of rock 'n' roll necklace and simple halo of flowers.

  1. Keep the makeup simple and understated, but with a healthy flush. I like Revlon's PhotoReady creme blush line.
  2. Steal Jane's look and accent a deep v-neck with a long pendant necklace, like this one by Elizabeth and James.
  3. You can get a flower wreath that last forever from Urban Outfitters.
  4. Copy her natural look with Lipstick Queen's bare nude lipstick.
  5. For a look that's both modern and classic, I like this diamond baguette wedding band, $3,000 from Catbird NYC.
  6. Get a vintage-inspired crochet gown from Etsy seller Daughters of Simone.
  7. And finally, a perfect batch of wildflowers (lavender is particularly French) is the finishing touch.

  1. To keep the hippie-inspired, casual sexy vibe going, I like the idea of inviting bridesmaids to choose their own 70s-inspired maxi dresses, like these dresses from Calypso St. BarthBCBG and Revolve Clothing.
  2. Gift them with a sculptural, classic gold bangle, like this one by Alexis Bittar.
  3. Gold sandals can pull the look together. I like these gold disc sandals by Nine West.
