LĂ©a is a very busy girl these days. She was in London yesterday and attended the Mulberry Fashion Show. Check out the pictures in the gallery where you can see her pictured front row at the show alongside the very talented Juno Temple and Brit Marling.
After France and U.S. LĂ©a this time lands in UK with the cover of “The Gentlewoman“, an amazing biannual publication which chose her for its 8th issue. I will update as new pictures come out; for now I’ve added the cover and
one b&w portrait to the gallery, enojoy!
Paris Match featured LĂ©a with her mother ValĂ©rie Schlumberger in its latest issue. They’ve been photographed in Dakar, Senegal, where ValĂ©rie lives. I’ve also updated the gallery with LĂ©a’s most recent public appearances (LA first screening of Blue Is The Warmes Color and the Montreal private gala), enjoy!

The US debut of Blue Is The Warmest Color brings some good news with it: after covering almost every publication in France, LĂ©a is now on the cover of W Magazine for its October issue and all is marvelously blue. I’ve added a sneak peek of LĂ©a’s spread to the gallery and the interview that you can also find on W Magazine Online. Enjoy!
At the close of theÂ Cannes Film Festival this May, Steven Spielberg, the head of the jury, phonedÂ LĂ©a Seydoux, one of the stars ofÂ Blue Is the Warmest Color, and told her to attend the awards ceremony. At 28,Â SeydouxÂ is one of the most versatile young actresses in her native France. She has played a loyal courtier to Marie Antoinette in last yearâ€™sÂ Farewell, My Queen, a reckless young mother inÂ Sister, and the object of desire in the upcomingÂ Beauty and the Beast, opposite Vincent Cassel. Spielberg did not tell the actress what category she had won, but Seydoux assumed that she and her costar AdĂ¨le Exarchopoulos would receive the best actress prize. â€śInstead, we won the Palme dâ€™Or!â€ť Seydoux told me in June. It was a rare but meaningful decision on the part of the jury: a chance to applaud what many festivalgoers and critics found to be a controversial but fascinating work. It was also timely: In May, when crowds were protesting the recently passed gay-marriage law in France, an enthusiastic endorsement of an explicit lesbian love story was both an artistic and political statement. â€śI got the Palme dâ€™Or!â€ť Seydoux repeated, still clearly ecstatic. â€śWoo hoo hoo!â€ť (more…)
After NumĂ©ro and PremiĂ¨re, today’s M le Monde joins the list of magazines who
chose to feature LĂ©a in their September issue. I’ve added good quality scans to the gallery, check them out!
September’s here and with all the promotion going on for both ‘Grand Central‘ (out in cinemas in France!) and ‘La Vie d’AdĂ¨le‘, LĂ©a is everwhere! Here are the scans of two publications in which she appears with co-star AdĂ¨le Exarchopoulos: PremiĂ¨re and NumĂ©ro; The latter with a very interesting interview in English!
The cast of La Vie d’AdĂ¨le‘ are on a press tour around North America which culminates at the Toronto Film Festival. Lots of interviews with the two leading ladies have appeared online in the past few days and I’m sure more will surface within the coming weeks but one that is definitely worth reading albeit somewhat controversial is the one they did for The Daily Beast:
“This film is very modern. Itâ€™s a new way to make films. We never saw a film like this beforeâ€”a love story this realistic. And it says a lot about the youth of today. Itâ€™s a film about love. I donâ€™t really think itâ€™s a film about homosexualityâ€”itâ€™s more than that. Homosexuality is not taboo anymoreâ€”even if it isnâ€™t considered â€śmoralâ€ť by everyoneâ€”which is how it should be.”
