Singer-actress Jane Birkin passed away at 76 on July 16, 2023.

Jane — who wore a beaded gown as she posed for a portrait in Paris in November 1968 — made a name for herself during that decade, starting in film before moving on to music.
The beauty was also renowned for inspiring the legendary Hermes Birkin bag after sitting next to the fashion house’s chief executive, Jean-Louis Dumas, in the ’80s and remarking on the need for a good leather weekend bag.
