In My Next Life...

...I hope to be a gamine like girl (if I am not a sea turtle) who can pull off bleached hair, a pixie cut and thick eyebrows like Carey Mulligan does so perfectly on the cover of the up-coming October American Vogue. 

Gamine is a French word, the feminine form of gamin, originally meaning urchin, waif or playful, naughty child.

The word was used in English from about the mid 19th century (for example, by Thackeray in 1840 in one of his Parisian sketches), but, in the 20th century, came to be applied in its more modern sense of a slim, often boyish, wide-eyed young woman who is, or is perceived to be, mischievous, teasing or sexually appealing.
