Bond girl Lea Seydoux has bagged her first campaign for Louis Vuitton . The French actress of “Spectre” fame has been roped in by the brand for its Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The travel campaign of the brand will make its debut in Vanity Fair U.K. on Friday.
The 30-year-old actress was photographed for the shoot at the colorful, modernist ranch Cuadra San Cristóbal designed by celebrated Mexican architect Luis Barragán. The Louis Vuitton travel campaign ad shows Seydoux with windblown hair cradling Capucines and City Steamer handbags.
Seydoux wears clothes from the label’s pre-fall collection in the ads styled by Marie-Amélie Sauvé. Her outfits are classic, with sharp silhouettes and prints. She has been photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, while Paul Hanlon styled hair.
Her make-up was done by Hannah Murray. The Paris-born Seydoux joined Alicia VIkander, Michelle Williams, Jennifer Connelly and CDoona Bae as an ambassador for Louis Vuitton and made her first appearance for the brand last January at the Unicef Ball in Los Angeles. This is not her first stint with a fashion house; Seydoux has earlier starred in campaigns for Prada and Miu Miu.
The actress took to Instagram and shared a series of six pictures from the ad campaign. The campaign will roll out in June and July on magazines worldwide. A warm-up for the Cannes Film Festival, Seydoux plays a “daring, confident heroine who is constantly on the move” in her first Louis Vuitton campaign.
The “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” actress will be at Cannes in May. She is to appear in Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only the End of the World,” one of 21 films in competition. The cast also includes Marion Cotillard, Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel and Gaspard Ulliel. Seydoux scooped up a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 for her role in “Blue is the Warmest Color” and has appeared in films like “Inglourious Basterds,” “Midnight in Paris,” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
