Lea Seydoux wore my favourite look from the Elie Saab Spring 2011 Couture collection to the 2011 Cesar Film Awards in Paris last night.

The young French actress was nominated for Best Young Actress for her role in “Belle Epine.”

She looked breath-taking wearing fully-embroidered black gown, with stone-white lace empire-line bodice which cap sleeves.

Whilst not being keen on the white scarf draped around her arms, she does to justice to this stunning gown.

I had pictured it on someone older like Angelina Jolie or Marion Cotillard, but she as young as she is Lea manages to breathe old Hollywood glamour into this look.

Definitely a BDOTW contender.
