Melanie Laurent: Quirky Parisian Chic

Melanie Laurent

Mélanie Laurent is a woman of many talents. Aside from her internationally recognized work as an actor, she is also an award-winning director, writer, and a singer. She is best known stateside for her role in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds but will be seen later this year starring opposite Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer in Mike Mills’ eagerly anticipated film, Beginners

The Paris-born star is no stranger to the screen, as she has appeared in over 25 films, and even though most of her work is French, the talented actress' classic Parisian style has not gone unnoticed. She is rarely over-styled and always has an element of quirk in her look. Whether it be a statement shoe, veil, or bold beauty look, she rarely missteps. As noteworthy as her eccentric sartorial choices are, it is often her beauty look that truly makes her unique sense of style. Her favored look is a clean, fresh face with creamy pink blush and a bold lip but there is no doubt she would be just as captivating with no makeup at all.

What makes the star so captivating, especially on the red carpet, is her nonchalance at press events. She is often seen frolicking with friends and paying little attention to eager paparazzi. It is this ease and fresh persona that adds to her chic sense of style. It seems her style had not gone unnoticed by fashion's heavy hitters; as earlier this month it was announced that Laurent will be the new face of Dior’s Hypnotic Poison. Given her quick rise to international notoriety, I would venture a guess that editors and designers alike will be flocking to the actress very soon.
