Léa Seydoux's soft spot for Italian fashion

French star Léa Seydoux only gets excited about very select fashion labels.

Actress Léa Seydoux isn't too bothered about fashion but will always make an exception for Miu Miu and Prada.

The French beauty is currently doing the promo rounds with new film Spectre, in which she plays seductive Bond girl Madeleine Swann. It might seems as though she's always hot on the heels of the latest trends, but the 30-year-old star isn't actually that stylish.

"I have to admit, it doesn't interest me that much," she told Germany's Glamour magazine when asked about fashion. "There are labels like Prada and Miu Miu, which I like a lot. But the gems in my wardrobe aren't at all glamorous: I had some boots custom made for me. Generally, in my downtime, I like wearing masculine clothes."

Léa let her androgynous style shine through on the red carpet for Spectre in London in October (15). She wore a patterned, dark green trouser suit, with earrings and high heels adding a feminine edge.

While she enjoys the process of dressing up for events, it doesn't resonate with her everyday life.

"I love presenting myself in glamorous dresses," she smiled. "It's the same when I do sexy photoshoots. But it's not anything I would wear in day-to-day life."

Just as the stunning blonde likes to keep her clothes simple, she also doesn't have a lengthy beauty routine. Instead she sticks with the basics in order to get her glow.

"I don't have a regime," she recently revealed to Britain's Elle magazine. "I take a contraceptive that helps my skin, otherwise I would have acne. When I do use cream, I use La Roche-Posay. I use oil on my skin at night: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate on my face and Bio-Oil on my body."
