Francoise Hardy

People Culture

Musician and actor Francoise Hardy was stylish, classy.

She had a perfect look for the sixties and seventies, and she was known to love a race car and a bike or two too.

Petrol-inclined individuals are more likely to know her through her involvement in John Frankenheimer’s Grand Prix – the 1966 classic schlockfest set in the European racing scene, where she, predictably, plays a love interest.

We found this nice little selection of images from Grand Prix recently – and Hardy’s perfect poise really stuck out –

Expect to see the new generation of custom bike girls rocking the Hardy look on a hunk of iron near you.
