The Soft Side Braid: Mission, Possible


We got our first glimpse of Léa Seydoux when the French actress nabbed a starring role in the Prada Candy fragrance campaign. Full disclosure: We watched her do the Apache dance in that commercial about 100 times. Those lips! That fringe! Her adorable gap teeth! We knew then that there was a certain je ne sais quoi about Seydoux that was mesmerizing—which is presumably what compelled Woody Allen to cast her in this summer’s Midnight in Paris. With a part in a new big-budget blockbuster, Seydoux is on her way to Hollywood superstardom, but that doesn’t mean she’s lost her innate sense of effortless French chic. At the U.K. premiere of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol last night in London, Seydoux paired a brick red lip with sculpted cheeks, natural brows, and one of the prettiest, softest side braids we’ve seen in a good long while—wispy, face-framing layers included. Thoughts on her easy red-carpet look?
