Jean Seberg: Actress, Activist, Icon.
Today marks what would have been Jean Seberg's 76th birthday. Born November 13, 1938 in Marshalltown, Iowa, she became an international movie star acting in 37 films before her death in 1979.
Others may recall her style, whether casual in Breathless or sophisticated as in Moment to Moment where she was dressed by Yves Saint Laurent. She developed tasteful and changing looks which have influenced major fashion designers over the years and to the present day.
On November 21 through 23, 2014 Jean will once again be honored in her hometown with the 4th Annual Jean Seberg International Film Festival. This year's theme is "Influenced. Influencing." with films and symposiums to demonstrate this side of Iowa's own. For more information about the JSIFF, click HERE.
Happy birthday, Jean Seberg. You continue to leave us breathless with your beauty, style, talent, humor and compassion.
