Birkin Upstaged By Bag
British actress Jane Birkin admits the Hermes bag named after her is now more famous than her. The French-based star, who sang the breathy JE T'AIME with Serge Gainsbourg in the 1960s, was flattered when the French fashion house named the classic accessory 'The Birkin'. However, when Birkin's daughter recently visited a Hermes boutique in the United States, she was stunned by shop assistants. Birkin says, "It is difficult to be surpassed by a bag. "Now when my daughter LOU DOILLON goes to America, they ask her if she is the daughter of the bag."
