Rendez-vous with Clémence Poésy

Clémence Poésy is an actress/model born in France. Clémence started acting at the age of 14 and continued schooling until the age of 16, when she got an agent and went on to study acting. She has appeared in several French films and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is only the second English film she has been in. The other was Gunpowder, Treason and Plot (2004), in which she played the role of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Clémence on acting in an other language: "It’s – strangely – easier. It’s a bit like playing with a mask on. You allow yourself to do more than you do in your own language. You’re not listening to [the words] as much, which is the worst thing you can do when you’re acting. You’re closer to playing the emotions. Well, maybe that’s just me."
The 25-year-old has a perfectly unstudied style. She favors a street-smart mix peppered with designer names like Balenciaga, Chloé, and Isabel Marant. She has been spotted in the front row at exclusive Paris fashion shows, has a penchant for girlie yet edgy labels, and exudes a serene beauty. "Beauty comes from who you’re with, what you’re doing, what you’re reading, the sport you’re doing,"
The only thing I can say after this quote is: GO CLÉMENCE!

I'm sorry

Yes, I truly am. I haven't updated this blog in 10 days! The reason for lack of updates is that I've been on a city trip for a few days! It was amazing. Anyway, read the new rendez-vous with Clémence Poésy: model, actress and fashion icon.

Sweet music: Agyness Deyn

Most of you maybe know her as an english supermodel, but the British supermodel is releasing a single titled 'Who' on June 23rd. The 25-year-old Agyness collaborated with the New York band Five O'Clock Heroes on the single.

Although lots of people were afraid it would hurt her career, after seeing this music video they will definatley change their opinions. Celeb-blogger Perez Hilton thinks Agyness sounds 'a little Kate Bush-y'.
Agyness Deyn (born Laura Hollins) is from Littleborough in Greater Manchester. Deyn's working life started serving cod, chips and mushy peas part-time at 17, which she did in Ramsbottom. Agyness has come a long way in the nine years since she first came to the attention of the folk of Rossendale – winning the Free Press’s Face of '99 competition. The 16-year-old – then Laura Hollins – was living in Cloughfold, when she and Barney Horton, 19, were chosen as the king and queen of the Valley catwalk. The pair won an exclusive photo shoot with Free Press snapper Tony Cross in what was one of Laura’s first modelling assignments. Even at that early stage she had the potential to go the very top, according to Tony. He said: ‘She was quite natural in front of the camera and was quirkily attractive and beautiful.’
Deyn has appeared in advertisements for Blugirl by Blumarine, Burberry, Cacharel, John Galliano, Gianfranco Ferrè, Giorgio Armani, Mulberry, Paul Smith, and Vivienne Westwood. In 2007 she won the 'Model of the Year' award at the British Fashion Awards. But besides that Deyn is tipped as a successor to Kate Moss!
