The Prince of Cool

For most of us the "King of Cool" will always be Steve Mc Queen, yet a photo like the one below shows that there is a "Prince of Cool", and that is Serge Gainsbourg.

Wearing a 3 piece suit, which has a made a comeback this season, a pair of wrap around sunglasses, and smoking a cigarette (his trademark) Gainsbourg posed for the camera in the early 70s.

A european with a cigarette in his hand is not a signature but a staple during this era.
