French Lessons From Clémence Poésy


Joining the likes of Victoria Beckham, Laura Brown, and Alexa Chung as a new “MyTheresa Woman” is French actress Clémence Poésy, who brings a healthy dose of Parisian chic to the table. The portrait series is comprised of short videos in which women of great style, intellect, and talent share their favorite finds from MyTheresa. In Poésy’s clip, which debuts exclusively on, the actress elaborates on her effortless, intuitive signature look.

“I love the idea of buying something that you keep for a long time,” Poésy offers in the film. “My favorite piece in my wardrobe is a shirt that was my mum’s in the 1970s. I’ve worn it so much that I can’t even take it out of my wardrobe anymore because I think it’s going to just break.”

Poésy’s personal style is quintessentially French—think floaty dresses, bedhead, and minimal accessories—but she admits to taking more risks when she travels stateside. “What I love about New York is that no one cares…You can wear whatever you want, you can be as crazy as you want. So I feel freer there.”

In her video, Poésy models everything from a sequined Saint Laurent blazer to an embroidered Valentino jumpsuit to a super-sheer white dress teamed with clunky lace-up boots. What can we say? We love a girl with multiple (sartorial) personalities.
