I always wondered what the big deal was about Charlotte Gainsbourg, darling of the art and fashion worlds. That is, until I saw a screening of the new Merchant Ivory film (or just Ivory, as it were), City of Your Final Destination, at a film festival screening last week. I didn't recognize her immediately, since she wasn't clad in her typical Balenciaga ensembles in the film, but when I did, I instantly realized why the girl is golden. She has that amazing, hypnotic quality without even trying, that enchanting voice that makes you wish she'd sing you lullabies every night before you go to sleep. As a fellow moviegoer noted to me, "she's so ugly, but so beautiful" which kind of sums it all up.
