After France and U.S. Léa 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 Léa with her mother Valérie Schlumberger in its latest issue. They’ve been photographed in Dakar, Senegal, where Valérie lives. I’ve also updated the gallery with Léa’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, Léa is now on the cover of W Magazine for its October issue and all is marvelously blue. I’ve added a sneak peek of Léa’s spread to the gallery and the interview that you can also find on W Magazine Online. Enjoy!
At the close of the Cannes Film Festival this May, Steven Spielberg, the head of the jury, phoned Léa Seydoux, one of the stars of Blue Is the Warmest Color, and told her to attend the awards ceremony. At 28, Seydoux is one of the most versatile young actresses in her native France. She has played a loyal courtier to Marie Antoinette in last year’s Farewell, My Queen, a reckless young mother in Sister, and the object of desire in the upcoming 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 Adèle Exarchopoulos would receive the best actress prize. “Instead, we won the Palme d’Or!” 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. “I got the Palme d’Or!” Seydoux repeated, still clearly ecstatic. “Woo hoo hoo!”
