I have a new girl crush, her name is Léa Seydoux. She is the fascinating French actress who recently won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in the lesbian romance, Blue is the Warmest Color. You should have seen the impressive Louis Vuitton back bow dress she wore on the Cannes red carpet, it was quite something. This lady definitively knows how to dress her curvaceous figure.
While you might not be familiar with her name, I'm sure you have seen her face in a magazine. Aside from being a versatile actress, Lea is also the face of Prada's Candy fragrance and recently appeared in the latest Rag & Bone ad campaign.
I guess it's her raw talent and her unconventional beauty that makes me irresistibly drawn to her. Although she is not even thirty, she has worked with great directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Woody Allen and Ridley Scott just to name a few. And while some actresses tend to play the same type of character, Lea seems to enjoy exploring the many and mysterious sides of the female mind.
If you have never seen her on screen, I highly recommend you start with Farewell, My Queen. This French movie takes place on the eve of the French Revolution and depicts the last days of Marie Antoinette through the eyes of her young servant, Sidonie Laborde, played by Seydoux. I have a major thing for costume drama, but in this particular case, all eyes are not on the lavish costumes but rather on the candid and loyal Sidonie.
