The Actress, Director and Writer shares style tips plus one very memorable wardrobe malfunction. #ToryTunic
My style is…
Natural, casual but always feminin.
And my secret styling trick…
Opening my mother’s wardrobe.
First fashion memory…
It was in Cannes for the festival, 15 years ago. Fellini’s costume designer asked me to wear a dress made out of cinema films for a Fellini memorial. I was standing proudly on the red carpet and suddenly it was very windy. The films started to fly away unveiling my legs and more… Half naked, I raced on the stairs to reach the Palais so that I could sit. That was my first fashion memory! Fun after all.
Best fashion advice ever received…
“Never try to be sexy ” — from my mother.
I love a great tunic because…
I like the suggestion of a body shape through a soft fabric. It’s sensual and mysterious.
My tip to styling/accessorizing a tunic…
Add an old silver brooch above the heart.
My favorite beach getaway in the world…
My favorite beach is in Brittany. It’s very wild and is called Les Sables Blancs.
Eat French pancakes — they actually comes from there. Walk on the old path on the cliffs above the sea. The colors of the landscape are haunting. And relax at the magical Grand Hotel des Bains with the best sea view, in Locquirec.
My bohemian icon…
Frida Kahlo and her legendary hairstyle full of spring flowers.
The color I most love and why…
Red because it brings me panache!
What’s next for me…
I am currently in Paris writing the (hopefully) last draft of a script. The shoot will be in the States in Nevada at the end of the year. It’s my first feature as a director — an exceptional adventure.
