Be Me or Do Me: Léa Seydoux Style Double Shot

Posted on February 17, 2014

This lady’s been killing it Lupita-style lately, taking smart advantage of this time of increased prominence in the spotlight and showing off a pretty fabulous fashion sense. Walk with us.

How gorgeous. The colors look amazing on her and the drama of the skirt can’t be beat. Lena Dunham, this should have been your Emmys dress.

Love how “underdone,” her face is – and by that we mean she’s sporting a decent amount of makeup in order to provide the effect that she’s wearing very little. That kind of face paired with that kind of old-fashioned hairstyle reminds us of early ’80s Streep, circa the French Lieutenant’s Woman; probably the only point in Meryl’s career where she skirted right up to the line of becoming a fashion icon – before backing away from it furiously, we have to add. Which may have been the right choice for her, because she probably knew at some point she’d wind up dressed up like the following and knew she wouldn’t be any good at it. Very few ladies can go from the above super-chic look to this:

Face, hair, boobs and leg. With a healthy dose of sparkle. We’d never call this look chic, but she’s styled exactly right for it. The dress is too tight in the bust, though. And there’s nothing anyone can ever say or do to make us like that skirt. But we’re impressed by her ability to dress for impact and her ability to really switch things up depending on her goal for the night. In other words, she can work the “Be Me” look and the “Do Me” look just as easily. That’s some style chops.

Seriously, that is some killa FACE.
