162) Edith Piaf

Edith Piaf (born Édith Giovanna Gassion, 1915 - 1963). French cabaret singer, songwriter, and actress, noted as France's national chanteuse and one of the country's most widely known international stars.
Piaf's music was often autobiographical and she specialized in chanson and torch ballads about love, loss and sorrow. Her most widely known songs include “La Vie en rose" (1946), "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960), "Hymne à l'amour" (1949), "Milord" (1959), "La Foule" (1957), "L'Accordéoniste" (1940), and "Padam, padam..." (1951).    

- "Piaf herself is a tiny creature of the street - reddish-brown, tousled hair..."…

- "Tossed auburn hair, big eyes, pale, mournful face..."

- "She is tiny, with huge mop of red hair and a big red mouth..."
