Uptown Style File
Regularly seen in the front row of Chanel and Chloé, Clémence Poésy has become known for her magnetic, alluring style.
Elegant, whimsical and unmistakably chic, Clémence Poésy is the embodiment of understated French dressing.
A face of Chloé’s signature fragrance, Poésy has that unmistakable je ne sais-quoi or ‘something special you just can’t place’.
The beautiful French actress favours Chanel and Nina Ricci to walk the red carpet and often chooses relaxed tailored pieces for during the day. Skinny jeans, blazers, classic white shirts and black opaque tights are her wardrobe staples. Her colour palette is often monochromatic or in muted shades in classic silhouettes.
Her electric pieces, striking beauty and pared-down aesthetic make Poésy a true style ingénue. Polished yet without-fuss; lady-like but not frothy; classic yet modern; Clémence Poésy has that irresistible French allure.
Do you love Clémence Poésy’s style as much as I do? xx

For the after party, Watson changed into a darling embellished Elie Saab dress (one of my personal favourites from the Spring 2011 Couture collection)! (pictured right)
Clemence Poesy also bewitched in a white silk chiffon Nina Ricci dress from the Spring / Summer 2011 collection. Accentuated with black waistband, Poesy is the epitome of French polished chic.

Chanel Resort 2012
I heart Chanel…
Taking place at the legendary Hôtel du Cap along the coast in Antibes, the Chanel Resort 2012 collection was a master class in elegant sophistication.
Dresses and fits evoked a twenties / thirties aesthetic – reminiscent of Coco Chanel’s own Riviera style. Chanel herself attended parties at Hôtel du Cap with icons Picasso, Dalí and among many others.
Jacket seams were styled close to the body while pristine white evening gowns cut flatteringly to the body creating a ‘pure innocent seduction’. Each style of clothing was represented within the collection – from swimwear to evening – making it practical and indulgent.
In attendance at the presentation, style icons and Chanel favourites – Blake Lively, Clémence Poésy, Caroline Sieber and Alexa Chung.
Seductive, Elegant and Timeless Chic… A Chanel Enchantment Of Course
