Anna Karina. Anna Katherine. Same diff.

I was introduced to Anna Karina when I was shown the made for TV 1967 film 'Anna', also starring Serge Gainsbourg and Marianne Faithful.  I quickly became obsessed with the film itself, but also with its stunning female lead who I found myself immediately trying to emulate through hair, make-up and fashion. (Insert fringe/bangs and black eyeliner.)

Anna was made famous by director Jean-Luc Godard, to whom she was married for 6 years, by starring in some of his greatest films, including Breathless, Alphaville, Made in U.S.A. and A Woman is a Woman.  She's on her fifth husband and, if I am being honest, she hasn't aged all that well, but I am happy residing in the past and being completely fascinated by this darling of 1960's French cinema.  See the clips below from 'Anna':
