I am about life. I surround myself with beautiful things. I work hard to have a better life. This job helps me achieve that through the people I meet. I’m lucky – not to have been a cover girl – but to have been able to meet all these people, to live these adventures and travel so comfortably. But despite that, it’s still difficult. Nothing comes easily. Everything I‘ve earned is down to me, and no one else”.

After seeing Léa transform into a sophisticated and sensual woman in the whimsical Prada Candy short-films, everyone became somewhat intrigued by this free-spirited, modern-day Parisienne that we all secretly want to become. At Cannes, Léa’s style shone through, opting for simplicity and elegance, rather than the usual ostentation which seems to be de rigueur at film premieres.  The actress loves the classic pieces, yet isn’t afraid to combine prints and textures in a Dolce & Gabbana floral bustier dress or a Valentino embroidered long-sleeve dress . . .

Fashion Contributor, London

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
