Mélanie Laurent: Berlin Beauty-------
Since starring in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 film Inglourious Basterds, and nabbing a Dior fragrance contract in the process, Mélanie Laurent has continued to impress us with her easy approach to red-carpet beauty. A lipstick lover after our own hearts, the French actress has a range that covers everything from classic updos and glamorous blow-outs to simple topknots—and even the occasional porkpie hat. At a photo call yesterday at the sixty-third Berlinale International Film Festival for her new movie, Night Train to Lisbon, Laurent pulled out another doozy, in the form of a soft side braid that swept across her hairline, thus showcasing her ombré blonde locks in the process. You don’t see that on the premiere circuit every day. Thoughts on the look?
