In the course of his 30-year career Alain Chamfort has hidden behind an interesting variety of stage personas. In the 60's Chamfort played the role of 60's hipster, hanging out drinking and womanising with Jacques Dutronc. Then in the 70's Chamfort went on to adopt tight satin pant suits and blow-dried hair, remodelling himself as the camp-looking sidekick of French disco king Claude François. In the 80's Chamfort left the world of camp behind, however, to reinvent himself as a rather cold and aloof-looking dandy. And the 90's? Well, the 90's have heralded a new change of direction, a mature and relaxed-looking Chamfort having finally found the courage to experiment with a more authentic approach.
