The English singer and actor Jane Birkin met Serge Gainsbourg in when she was 22, and left the French singer and songwriter more than half a lifetime ago in — yet at 71 her name is still rarely mentioned without being bracketed with his. Among scores of glamorous images of the couple, the largest photograph by far, blown up to the size of a barn door, is of his handsome if haggard features cradling not Birkin but their dog Nana.

At 70, Jane Birkin’s Style Is More Iconic Than Ever
Oh, she got it, appearing next as one of the nude dancing models who romp with David Hemmings in Michelangelo Antonioni 's '60s sextacular Blowup , which marked the beginning of her carnal career in international nude acting. Since then, she has appeared in some state of undress in at least fifteen films and continues to do so to this day, albeit generally in French cinema, where the living is sleazy. For some highlights from her sweet body of work, as well as to gawk at her savory, waif-like body, check her out in Alba Pagana , as Brigitte Bardot 's lover in Don Juan 73 , and Je t'aime moi non plus , in which she plays an androgynous bartender. For the breast of this small-breasted one, there's Le Mouton enrage , featuring Jane in some seriously hot full-frontal scenes. Bon appetitties!
