Ex Fan Des Sixties, Petite Baby Doll

Jane Birkin turned 60 on 14th December.

Remembered in England mostly for recording 'Je T'Aime, Moi Non Plus' with her beloved Serge Gainsbourg, and perhaps by a few cult film fans for bobbing about in a state of undress in 'Blow Up' and 'Wonderwall', Birkin is something of an icon in her adopted France, and has carved out an idiosyncratic career for herself as an actor and singer, with recent North African/Arabic-influenced albums drawing a fair bit of critical acclaim.

This performance may be simultaneously the sexiest and silliest thing of its kind you have ever seen (nice that the set designers decided to use images of screen idols from the, erm, 1950s. DOH!).

Anyway, as you can probably tell, The Ghost loves her.

Belated Happy Birthday Jane.
