Red Carpet Style Star: Léa Seydoux

If French actress Léa Seydoux’s assignment has been to own the red carpet on each stop of the Spectre world tour, then she's aced her mission. The stunning 30-year-old is a stylish addition to the Bond franchise, which sees its 24th installment roll into theatres on Nov. 6. From glittering gold Prada in London to a sampling of some of Miu Miu’s greatest creations in Paris and Mexico City, Léa has proven that when it comes to fashion, her style is as lethal as 007.

In Spectre, the Paris-born ingénue plays Madeleine Swann, a talented psychiatrist who Léa describes as “a Bond girl you remember.” And while James Bond (Daniel Craig) faces multiple challenges on his quest to take down an underground team of criminals, the actress admits that she had an easy time romancing the world’s most famous secret agent on screen. “I was a huge fan!” she told People about her handsome co-star. “How can you resist Daniel? He’s so sexy!

Playing a Bond girl might be her most recognizable role to date, but the actress has an impressive history in film. After working in French cinema for years, Léa ventured into Hollywood in 2009 with roles in Inglourious Basterds, Midnight in Paris, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Farewell, My Queen. And in 2013, her film Blue Is the Warmest Color won the Palme d’Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival. She just wrapped production on It's Only the End of the World, an emotional drama co-starring Marion Cotillard and directed by Canada's own Xavier Dolan. And once the dust settles on Spectre's international press tour, it is rumoured that Léa is set to join the Marvel family, with reports saying that she has landed a part in Gambit opposite Channing Tatum.
