A few weeks before that, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays Emily’s boss in Emily in Paris, made headlines. The 58-year-old actor attended the Ami fall 2022 show in a body-skimming, semi-sheer forest green knit dress styled with an oversized blazer and heeled sandals. The actor was visibly confident and, like her character, completely no-nonsense and seductive. At that same show, another French actor, Isabelle Adjani walked the runway in a slick black coat and leather gloves with her classic pout. The 66-year-old looks fantastic.
The list of sartorially alluring French women goes on. There’s the French-Algerian director Farida Khelfa, who has embraced classic-yet-quirky dressing, whether she is baring her arms at a Jean Paul Gaultier show or sporting a slick three-piece suit on a red carpet. Beatrice Dalle, the bad babe of French Hollywood, is perpetually punk and exists in her own universe.
