Léa Seydoux's performance in the upcoming Blue Is the Warmest Colour has easily cemented her place among France's finest contemporary actresses. And to add to her growing extraordinary output of late is this short film from fashion photographer-turned-director Glen Luchford, made for NY fashion house Rag & Bone and released via Nowness.
Following on from Léa's appearance in the Wes Anderson-directed Prada ad, here she struts her thing in New York City to the sounds of Sparklehorse's superbly melancholic "It's a Wonderful Life". The short is very fashion-y but it's also visually stunning with the inherently cinematic NYC streets featuring prominently throughout.
If you enjoy Luchford's NYC-set short, there's also one in the same series with Michael Pitt (Bully, The Dreamers) below. Let us know what you think.
