Mélanie Laurent attended the ‘Touch of the Light’ premiere during the 2012 Marrakech Film Festival on Friday.
The French actress ventured on a limb wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture dress-over-pants combo.
Mélanie’s sly charm works well with the outfit’s winking nod to both uber-feminine midcentury eveningwear and the gender-bending YSL Le Smokings that followed a decade later.
However, the spare soigné of the navy and black ensemble is thrown off by Mélanie’s limp, crimpy hair, heavy eye makeup, and time-for-a-touch-up dark roots.
Had she booked a last-minute appointment at the colourist and stayed at the salon long enough for someone to wrap her hair into a neat top knot, this could’ve been a hit.
You may remember that Ruth Wilson wore a similar Dior Couture to Mélanie’s just last week.
