About Kate Barry
“We’re like the Redgraves, except that we all have different names,” Judy Campbell, Birkin’s mother, once famously remarked of her talented clan. The same might be said of Birkin’s trio of daughters, all of whom have helped carry on her legacy of style and creativity. Herewith, a crib sheet to her genetically cool offspring.
Father: Composer John Barry, best known for scoring 11 James Bond films, including “Dr. No” and “Goldfinger.”
Family ties: Son, Roman, 18.
Fashion connections: Barry has done ad campaigns for the likes of Dior Parfums, Shiseido, Kérastase and La Redoute, the latter of which included half sister Lou and mom, Jane, as subjects. She has also shot editorials for Dazed & Confused, Elle, Figaro Madame, Milk and Very Elle (half sis Charlotte was the star).
Trademark style: Though she trained initially as a fashion designer, Barry prefers low-key attire of layered knits and skinny jeans.
Parental control: Barry shot the cover for Birkin’s 2004 album “Rendez-Vous.”
Off the beaten track: In addition to her arresting black-and-white portraits (Stella McCartney, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Nicolas Ghesquière have posed for her), Barry’s past work has included drug counseling for recovering addicts.
Upcoming projects: Barry is working on a photo project titled “Les Mauvaises Herbes,” which translates to “Weeds.”
