Léa Seydoux is the new face of Louis Vuitton this 2016. The rising star, who was once known for her independent films in France, now dominates — not only Hollywood — but also the fashion world as well.
"I feel extremely proud at the thought of representing such a strong symbol of French elegance, an iconic brand whose initials are known the world over," the actress said in a press release, according to People. "I deeply admire Nicolas Ghesquière's work, especially his newness. His incessant search for novelty is also highly impressive."
Declaring the 30-year-old French beauty as the new face of the lavish brand was quite expected. Many were also surprised that she will join LV celebrity spokeswomen, like Nicholas Ghesquire, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jennifer Connelly and Michelle Williams, Vogue reported.
Furthermore, Seydoux is gradually making a name when she recently joined the James Bond movie, "Spectre" and become one of the Hollywood's "It girls" because of her style and substance. However, the brand known for signature monogrammed bags' spring ads will not include her as Jaden Smith will have to do that.
Instead, The Last Mistress star will join the house's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, at the upcoming Unicef Ball on Jan.12, Harper's Bazaar noted. She will also wear a custom-made design for the occasion, of course, by Louis Vuitton.
Although she's already known to have the "effortless French girl style," Seydoux is now transitioning from the common denim pants to sophisticated looks with sexy ensembles and red lipsticks. Furthermore, she has been a brand ambassador of Prada and its sister brand, Miu Miu.
Seydoux was also seen strutting the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival and the César Awards with her custom-design outfits. She was already spotted wearing the combination styles of Valentino, Schiaparelli Couture and Christian Dior.
