French Girly Charme: Lea Seydoux

If you are wondering who on earth Lea Sedoux is,  just think of the Prada Candy ad! The Lady with the fringe and the long blond hair in the macaron pink dress is the perfect fit for one of my favourite perfumes, the sweet gourmand scent Candy. Lea also starred in movies such as “Midnight in Paris” with Marion Cotillard and Mission Impossible.

Miuccia Prada says of Lea, 28: “She could be wearing lots of jewelry and a crocodile jacket, but she has something very natural about her.”

Lea Sedoux personifies to me what is known as French chic:  The tousled hair, minimalistic make-up, natural charme, without being too done, too manicured, too styled.

Get inspired by Lea Sedoux natural seduction!

Summer Sneak Peak 2013: French Chic Dresses

Dresses/ Romantique

The only good thing about gloomy  January and February is the arrival of the new summer fashion! This year, fashion is so varied and fun, there’s something for everyone. I ploughed through various new season Look Books to show you the creme de la creme of dresses.

Above and Below: French Style Vichy / Gingham and stripey dresses continue to rock next summer. Checks and stripes always look fresh and young.  Red checked dress from MAx & Co (Max Mara’s little sister) SS 2013.

Stripes come in classic black and white as well as in all colours of the rainbow in  2013. Photo from Max & Co Look book SS 2013.

Swiss Lace and Broderie Anglaise are luckily here to stay too, cute combined with a chained mini bag in gelato colours. From Max & Co SS 2013.

The thick belt must be one of my favourite accessorises: Vichy / gingham dress with waistslimming wide brown leather belt from La Fée Maraboutée Paris SS 2013.

Below: Swiss lace and eyelet embroidery in innocent whites or combined with pastel colours look angelic. Left: Tromp L’oeil dress from Max & Co in knit and Swiss lace. Right: Summer 2011, I’m wearing a dress from MAx & Co.

Do you like the dresses and are you excited about summer?
