The Divine Miss Rampling

There are so many photos of Charlotte Rampling in a sexual context. I don't see her that way, rather I see her as a highly refined woman, interesting, wise, intelligent. I have always found her eyes to be her most memorable feature, don't you think? Piercing and razor sharp, as I would imagine her wit and intelligence.

Le Figaro Madame Madame recently asked Catherine Deneuve and other actresses what their definitition of being a Saint Laurent's woman. Here is Charlotte Rampling's answer:

What's your idea of feminity?
A Saint Laurent tuxedo with a very beautiful jewel on your jacket. High heels and your favourite perfume.
According to you, what's the "Saint Laurent woman"?
She knows that allure accounts for everything. She knows that she needs to understand how to be in her body and in her mind. After that, she just needs to be Saint Laurent of course!
Are you a Saint Laurent's woman?
I am from times to times, since I am 20 years-old, a Saint Laurent's woman.
A woman should never leave home without...
...her mobile, her makeup powder, her lipstick, her debit card, her keys, because she needs to go back home at some point.
What's the height of elegance?
My mother.
