Clémence Poésy is featured on Vogue.co.uk!
YOU might think that living in Paris would be a mecca for style inspiration, but French actress Clémence Poésy says that living in the City of Light can actually be somewhat restrictive when it comes to fashion.
“I think in Paris I dare a bit less,” said Poésy. “What I love about New York is that no one cares… you can wear whatever you want. You can be as crazy as you want. So I feel freer there. I tend to wear lots of hats in NY. And I just love people-watching in London. The Brits have a really amazing sense of style.”
Poésy stars in Mytheresa.com’s fifth instalment of portraits focused on inspiring women, with former subjects including Alexa Chung and Victoria Beckham. The Clemence Poesy actress stars in a series of photographs for the online shopping destination, as well as a short film, which highlight her bohemian, effortless approach to dressing.

“I’ve always been fascinated by Lee Miller,” she said. “She is one of my heroes, and I love Francesca Woodman. Sometimes, I can just stare at the pattern in her pictures all day or the shape of one of her shirts. She created the most amazing atmospheres. I also adore Niki de Saint Phalle. I think that she is a very elegant woman and I think I would lie if I didn’t say Patti Smith and Jane Birkin were also sources of inspiration for me.”
