Icons: Charlotte Rampling

Charlotte Rampling young style

“Fashion is about us—how we look and present ourselves, how we can change ourselves and our perceptions.”

– Charlotte Rampling

English actress Charlotte Rampling’s effortless and breezy style truly exemplified fashion in the 1970’s. The natural beauty began her career as a model, posing for the likes of Helmut Newton and Iving Penn before transitioning into film. She has enjoyed a versatile and long-lasting career as an actress and her personal sense of style is celebrated just as much today as when she emerged as a star in the 1960’s.

Charlotte’s signature uniform of easy flowing dresses and minimal makeup is not only timeless, but also the perfect inspiration for the current 70’s fashion revival. Scroll through for an ode to Ms. Rampling’s very stylish early days, plus the pieces to shop to emulate her look today.
