Loudoillon >>  As daughter of Jane "Hermes named an expensive bag after me" Birkin, Lou Doillon was destined for the fashion spotlight.  A recent questionnaire with the girl who adores her top hats, is enamored with channeling the Artful Dodger, and occupies herself designing a capsule collection for British denim company Lee Cooper, reveals Lou and her enigmatic ways:

Brand endorsements: In the accompanying photo, she wears a shirt from the Olsen's The Row and Lee Cooper jeans, of course.  She also mentions recently acquiring a Chanel jacket and bag: "You can dress up like a tramp and have a little Chanel bag, and look so chic."

On why she always wears top hats: " I come from a very mad, very classic family that all wore hats. I have a vintage pop-up top hat that I wear a lot. I'm like the Houdini of nightclubs, pulling an enormous hat out of a tiny bag."

Her style credo: "What attracts me is something broken, something a bit off. I never comb my hair or make anything pretty. When people look too beautiful, it's too easy."  Funny, I remember reading Carine Roitfeld saying something very similar in Stylist: The Interpreters of Fashion about how things that are "off" inspire her editorial work.  Maybe it's the French girl credo . . .
