Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin
at cannes film festival on may 19, 1969
Legendary celebrity photographer Bert Stern was known for his ability to coax a truly spontaneous and unexpected moment from his subjects. In this image from the June 1, 1970, Vogue, a playful Serge Gainsbourg tries to fell his then wife, singer and actress Jane Birkin. Birkin wears a midriff-baring top and matching skirt by Maxime de la Falaise and knee-high Capezio boots. Gainsbourg, a times a director and actor, is also one of the most highly regarded musicians in the world.
