Clemence Poesy was "touched" by how "faithful" the people she works with at Chloe are.

Clemence Poesy used to dream of being friends with the girls in the Chloe campaigns.

The French actress has been the face of the brand's perfumes for almost 10 years now, and is still just as passionate about her role today as she was at the beginning. She's formed a close bond with Chloe's designer Clare Waight Keller during this time and is still in awe to be working with a label she's admired for so long.

“I was just really touched by how faithful they were," she told WWD. "It’s quite rad to get the chance to work at different stages of your life with the same people and Clare is incredibly talented and the coolest. I just feel really privileged.

"I had pictures of Chloe campaigns on my teenage walls because I thought it was poetic and romantic. It never feels super aggressive or overly sexy, it just feels like girls you know or would like to be friends with."

When Clemence isn't busy modelling for the fashion house she's in front of the camera on the set of a film or TV series. She's been acting since the late '90s, with roles in the Harry Potter films and Gossip Girl, but still isn't sure whether show business is her true calling.

“I don’t think I grew up thinking this is what I want to do... although I just might not have admitted it or felt a bit silly saying it because everyone was saying that, so I was saying something else... which I might be continuing in interviews... at 33,” she pondered.
