Charlotte Gainsbourg Does the Opposite of Freeing the Nipple 

This weekend, Richard Gere’s political thriller Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer premieres wide in theaters. On Wednesday, the cast gathered for an intimate New York screening hosted by the Cinema Society — in addition to the film’s star Gere, actors Lior Ashkenazi, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Hank Azaria, and Steve Buscemi all put in appearances. Actress and consummate French cool girl Gainsbourg plays Alex Green, who NPR recently described as “a New York-based corruption investigator for the Israeli government” who encounters the titular businessman played by Gere.

At the screening, surrounded by her suited male co-stars, Gainsbourg cut a particularly striking figure in an edgy Saint Laurent ensemble, plus t-shirt, minus glitter boots. It’s a look that showed during the Spring 2017 season, the collection that marked Anthony Vaccarello’s Saint Laurent debut. (Gainsbourg herself also sat front-row at the debut.) Originally modeled by Binx Walton, the leather minidress was an especially bold look — its most notable accessory being the rhinestone heart pasty on Walton’s breast, a gesture at modesty for the cutaway design. But for Gainsbourg’s red carpet appearance, she opted for a slightly more demure take on the look, doing whatever you might call the opposite of freeing the nipple [ . . . ]
