Whistles Muse: Charlotte Rampling

Whistles Muse: Charlotte Rampling

As one of the first women to successfully tackle a tuxedo, the iconic English actor is famed just as much for her enigmatic on-screen performances as for her quintessential wardrobe.

Rampling, a previous muse to Helmut Newton and Yves Saint Laurent, chooses to focus on the cut of her clothing. She opts for shapes that flatter the form and exude a quiet confidence.
 

Having shot to fame in the late sixties, Rampling’s style naturally evolved from oversized sunglasses, loose shirts and long-line skirts that defined the seventies, to her trademark reworking of masculine classics.

Striking a feminine balance with typically masculine pieces. Rampling plays with proportions, whilst opting for a neutral colour palette.

Steering away from bold standout pattern, her key pieces include leg lengthening wide trousers, lightweight oversized shirts and slim fitting jackets – all of which are essential components for her timeless sex appeal.

Small details are also a key focus, the rolled sleeve, unbuttoned collar, and occasionally a strategically draped dress create the thoughtful elements of any Rampling outfit. These are key formulas to her effortless and ageless appeal.
