Clémence: Chloé bond is special

Clémence Poésy only works with make-up artists who "understand" the look she is going for.

The French actress-and-model is no stranger to fronting big campaigns having posed for the brand before, along with other jobs such as G-Star RAW’s Spring/Summer 12 ads.

Last year she was invited back to be the face of Chloé's scent Love Story and she stars in a short film directed by fellow thespian and fashion star Mélanie Laurent to promote the product.

"I was very touched Chloé asked me to do this a second time around," Clémence told British newspaper The Telegraph. "I never thought that would happen. I grew up really admiring all the poetry of the clothes - Chloé was the first fashion house that I bought clothes from when I starting out as an actress.

"It was really fun to film, but it was a tad cold... freezing in fact."

Appearing alongside her is the clip is a handsome young man and the pair are seen rushing through the city of Paris, with romantic shots such as them kissing on a bridge at night time.

It's no surprise the 32-year-old beauty was cold, as all she wears throughout the ad is a thin silk dress. It was an outfit choice made by Chloé's creative director, Clare Waight Keller, who felt it appropriate.

"We shot the stills in New York a few months before and it was all about the back, and this dress worked in exactly the same way - it felt so beautiful," Clare added.

But Clémence did get to pick her beauty look for the job. She opted for natural hair and make-up to stay true to her mantra; less is more.

"I don't like looking like someone's done too much," she noted. "I feel a bit weird looking like someone's done my make-up. If I have to, I try and work with people who understand how little make-up I like - someone like make-up artist Carole Colombani I love. On the hair I like almost nothing.

"I loved Chloé so much it didn't feel like I was forcing myself, it made sense in a strange way."

Clémence also shared her love for the fragrance, featuring notes such as blossom and jasmine, and complimented the way it is "delicate" without being too overwhelming.
