Trending: actress and style icon Ana Girardot


With only an overcoat, the actress Ana Girardot weaves an enchanting stylistic story

“I LOVE the power of clothes,” she says. “It’s fascinating how much a person’s clothes say about their attitude and personality.” Paradoxically, in our photo Ana Girar- dot appears nearly nude, with nothing on her skin but a sheepskin coat.

As an actress, Ana pays minute attention to each item in a character’s wardrobe. As a woman, she dresses according to her mood: “I love getting dressed—and having fun with it. Every day a new inspiration leads to a new outfit.” Today a bomber jacket with leggings and sneakers, yesterday jeans and a trench coat, tomor- row perhaps a dress… This purposeful unpredictability is right in step with the bohemian nonchalance of the shearling coat, whose 1970s connotations represent a major trend for winter 2017.

A host of images come to mind, and not only in black and white. But the spirit is clear: it’s about evoking the graceful insouciance of the sixties and seventies—ele- gant without a trace of bling. The coat in question is the fruit of a collaboration between Ana and the Pablo label, taking, at her insistence, the role of muse and model into creative territory. A true woman of today, she envisioned a wardrobe of an artist (“A painter—why not?”): plush overalls, an outsized shirt, a cape… “The elements for composing a look, through which she can express herself and explore her creativity.” And that, in a word, is chic.
