Je m'appelle Candy

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Prada Candy is directed by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, starring French actress Léa Seydoux as Candy, Rodolphe Pauly as Julius and Peter Gadiot as Gene. That face. Those bangs. Her voice. She just has such an effortless beauty and chicness like most French women. I have a serious case of bang envy right now. I am desperately attempting to grow out my hair and bangs for over a year now. I feel like I shouldn't give up, since it's my mother and also Diane Keaton who have inspired me to grow out my hair the same length all around with a center part. But when I see photos of beautifully framed faces of Anna Karina, Jane Birkin, Françoise Hardy, Zooey Deschanel, Alexa Chung and now Léa Seydoux, I can't help but feel the urge to get bangs again. 

"All men are children."
"Maybe, but at least children are innocent. Julius has the brains of a scientist, but the intelligence of a gorilla. Gene, of course, is every girl's dream, but a woman's nightmare." 

Also aren't the boys super adorable? Their hair! Jealous. If you watch the making of, the two actors are speaking English and they're so debonair and suave and charming. Oh major swoon. Maybe the real story is actually about Julius et Gene (like Jules et Jim) and Candy's the third wheel!

Prada Candy L'Eau will be out in April. Ready for spring!
