On My Mind: 7-18-16

Inès, Nine and Violette, 2008
Nine and Violette - Inès de La Fressange (full name Inès Marie Lætitia Églantine Isabelle de Seignard de La Fressange)  is a model, aristocrat, and designer, known all around for her style. At the age of 51 she walked the runway for Gaultier and later Chanel. She was married to Luigi d'Urso until his death in 2006. They had two daughters, Nine Marie d'Urso and Violette Marie d'Urso. She also has two stepdaughters, India and Clotilde.

Oscar Holly - I'm totally in love with actress Robin Tunney and her husband Nicky Marmet named their boy, Oscar Holly, which I discovered in this Nameberry post. I love seeing nature names used on boys!

Lolita - It's always super surprising to see this name used in real life, even though I think the sound is absolutely beautiful. French actress Isabelle Huppert has a grown daughter, Lolita Chammah, who is also an actress. Her brothers are Lorezno and Angelo. Their father is Lebanese actor Ronald Chammah.
