French Actresses

Today I am dreaming of French actresses who have graced their presence in both French and American films.

I loved Eva Green as a Bond Girl, and I can't wait to see her in Dark Shadows!

Marion Cotillard was brilliant in A Very Long Engagement but you also might recognize her from Inception, La Vie en Rose and Midnight in Paris

And of course, who doesn't love Audrey Tatou? Mostly known for the movie Amelie, she was also in A Very Long Engagement, done by the same director. But you should also see her in the movies Priceless and Coco Before Chanel.

I fell in love with Melanie Laurent when I saw her in Beginners but you might also recognize her from Inglorious Basterds.

And who knew the gorgeous Museum Guide from Midnight in Paris was none other than former model Carla Bruni, also the voice behind several soundtracks, like 500 Days of Summer and Le Divorce

Ah, so many glamorous french women, so little time! If only we could all be french and fabulous! Happy Dreaming!

I'm a fan of all of these women! Gosh, they are gorgeous! There's just a few things to remember to capture that french essence: toussled hair, red wine lips, colourful scarves, just a hint of perfume, and an air of je ne sais quoi? ;) (p.s my maiden name is LaFrance!) xox

Oh I love you for putting up that Carla Bruni quelqu'un ma dit song!! At one point I would play that song over and over on my iPod!

Ps. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I will eventually be putting up those clutches on my Etsy, just need to practise making a few more for now. :)
