Adèle and Léa are gracing the pages of the February 2014 issue of ELLE Japan. The photoshoot is the same that was first published by ELLE USA last November.
We’ve added some new photos of Adèle attending the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu fashion shows and will be adding more over the next few days as well.
Adèle Exarchopoulos attended the Louis Vuitton show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015 yesterday morning.
Exarchopoulos was joined at the show by Kate Mara, Nicola Peltz, Chloe Sevigny, Gemma Arterton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Vogue’s Anna Wintour, and Kate’s boyfriend Max Minghella.
Fashion Weeks around the world bring out all sorts—but few front rows were as cute, charming, and well-dressed as the one at Miu Miu’s fall 2014 Paris Fashion Week show yesterday afternoon.
Blue is the Warmest Color stars Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux fronted Miu Miu’s resort campaign—and the two looked gorgeous in their retro-inspired tailored jackets in the front row.
Seydoux and Exarchopoulos looked like quite the pretty pair, with Seydoux rocking a playfully printed pink top, blue-and-pink blazer, and matching leather skirt. Exarchopoulos chose a similar skirt-and-coat combo, but opted for a color palette of black, white, and navy, which she topped off with red satin pumps.
The beautiful Bella Heathcote and Elle Fanning, both looked lovely in prim and pretty dresses.
Fanning chose a retro, sporty look in her blue and yellow patterned dress, which she paired with watercolor-print heels, minimal jewelry and makeup, and pinned-back locks. Heathcote went a darker route, pairing a black skirt, coat, and pumps with a sheer plum top.
Elizabeth Olsen was pretty in pink in a high-neck frock, which she finished off with a navy leather clutch, a studded white overcoat, and perfectly tousled bed-head hair.
The amazing Lupita Nyong’o and the inimitable Rihanna wore bold color combos. Their outfits are a force to be reckoned with.
Rihanna showed up to see the Miu Miu collection wearing a mod brown dress, thigh-high tights, a thin purple scarf, and a massive fur-trimmed coat. Lupita’s been a Miu Miu girl for a while now, starring alongside show-goers Fanning, Olsen, and Heathcote in the brand’s Spring 2014 ad campaign, and in case you’ve already forgotten, she sported both a princess-perfect Prada gown and a beaded Miu Miu dress on Oscars Sunday.
Surprise guest Jared Leto was also a sight to behold, wearing a casual two-piece suit, long blue scarf, and amazing color-blocked loafers — a look he finished off with a leather cuff, aviator sunglasses, and that flawless hair that we just can’t get enough of.
What a star-studded day!
- Last night (March 3, 2014), Adèle Exarchopoulos was the special guest of Touche pas à mon poste. Recently awarded with the César for Best Female Newcomer for her role in Blue is the Warmest Color, the young actress talked about her first experience at the César ceremony with Cyril Hanouna and his columnists. They explained how the Césars were boring to watch and that the audience had trouble to feel a part of the event. Adèle affirmed that she enjoyed the ceremony.
- Interrogated by Enora Malagré, she explained that it was necessary to distinguish the Oscars and the Césars, two events that are often compared: “The Césars aren’t the Oscars, they have big teasers there and you can make fun of whoever you want and it remains fun (…) When we’re there we feel good”.
- When Thierry Moreau declared that the French authors who took part at the good development of the César weren’t at the same level of the American authors, Adèle confirmed his declarations. “There’s a lack of teasing” said the actress before precising that maybe the problem came from the audience present in the room: “It’s true that even when you go on stage, you really have the impression that people are bored… I’m okay. I went first but people are so blasé… Even my mother who was behind Scarlett Johansson was feeling uncomfortable”. But the actress doesn’t belittle the ceremony that recompensated her because she sustains that her award is a reason for great pride.
- With her participation at the programme of D8, Adèle Exarchopoulos allowed the channel to have a score of 1.11 million viewers, wich means 5.5% of market share. With these numbers, Touche pas à mon poste recovered the first place in the audience rating, after a light drop below 1 million viewers last week.
To coincide with the Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris, UniFrance films produced a short film recording the extraordinary year experienced by one of the stars of Blue is the Warmest Color.
Accompanied by uniFrance films managing director Isabelle Giordano, Adèle Exarchopoulos discusses the reaction of critics and audiences around the world to the film by Abdellatif Kechiche. The film shows the actress embarking on a world tour covering 18 countries, and features meetings with Steven Spielberg and Pedro Almodovar. Finding herself in the media spotlight for the first time, the young actress takes a moment to review a year that was a life-changing experience for her.
We’ve added over 100 new photos of Adèle from the César Awards and dinner to the gallery. Many thanks to Annie for some of the new photos.

Last year’s Palme D’Or winner at Cannes, graphic novel adaptation Blue is the Warmest Colour, took home the Best International Film award at the Independent Spirit Awards yesterday night (March 1, 2014).
The film, based on the French graphic novel Le Bleu est une Couleur Chaude (“blue is a warm colour”), by Julie Maroh, is a three-hour, visually explicit lesbian love story that got only a limited release in the United States and was rated NC-17.
The film is sweeping the foreign film categories in many of this season’s awards shows, but did not receive any Academy Award nominations. It was deemed ineligible for consideration for the Best Foreign Film trophy because its distributor would not release it early in order to make a deadline; they reportedly objected to the policy since if it was an American film, it would have been eligible with its original release date intact.
We’ve added some photos of Adèle from yesterday’s César Awards and dinner to the gallery and will be adding even more throughout the weekend.
Thanks to our friend Annie for many of the pictures.
Abdellatif Kechiche, “maker” of Best Female Newcomers. After Sara Forestier (L’esquive) and Hafsia Herzi (La graine et le mulet), it’s Adèle Exarchopoulos’s turn to be crowned by the profession.
Adèle says: “Everything was new. I have the impression that I learned a lot in one year. I learned more than I’ve ever learned before. It’ll be weird. I’ll miss it”. But she’s also happy to start something new. “The most important thing is to build something.”
We congratulate Adèle on the well-deserved award and recognition.
The César prize marks Exarchopoulos’s 10th award earned for her role opposite onscreen lover Léa Seydoux in the Palme d’Or-winning film, which was vying for eight César awards. Thesp told journos in the press room that she’ll next star in the feature debut of actress-turned-helmer Sara Forestier, M. (PS: Ms Forestier has worked with Kechiche in L’esquive which won her the César for Best Female Newcomer in 2005 and a few other awards).
M tells the story of Lila, a young convoluted stutterer who took refuge in silence. Her life changes when she falls in love with Mo, a kamikaze pilot who risks his life in every clandestine race. Throughout their contact, Lila extricates herself out of her silence. Their passion will push Mo to stop his sporting challenges. But the adrenaline and the love of risk are drugs that are hard to leave behind. Mo will be played by Moa Khouas (previously seen in Lila Dit Ça opposite Vahina Giocante) and the shooting will start in May.
Adèle dedicated her award to Abdellatif Kechiche, who didn’t attend the César ceremony: “I don’t know why you’re not here. It’s you that I owe this César to”, she declared. She thanked the director for changing her life and giving her this chance because “it’s rare for a French director to cast young blood like us”.
“Léa, you’re my most beautiful onscreen love story”, she added with a smile, referring to Léa Seydoux, her partner in the film. Adèle has also noted how generous Léa was during the filming and how much she loves her.
Seydoux ultimately lost out on the Best Actress trophy to 9 Mois Ferme‘s Sandrine Kiberlain. That film won one other prize, for director and co-star Albert Dupontel’s original screenplay. Adèle had previously confessed that she was rooting for Léa.
Exarchopoulos didn’t forget to thank the crew, the cast, the producers, her family (her parents and her younger brothers — she hopes they’re proud of her) and her boyfriend, Jérémie Laheurte, whom she met on the set of Blue Is the Warmest Color (because “the coolest thing in the world is to be his girlfriend”).
When interviewed by French radio station RTL, Adèle Exarchopoulos reacted with humor: “It makes me really happy. But I feel completely lost. I made a rotten speech!”
Blue Is the Warmest Color received a single award despite its eight nominations.
Tonight, at the Théâtre du Châtelet, will take place the 39th César ceremony which rewards the cinematic production of the past year.
Adèle, 20, says she will attend the César ceremony the same way that Jared Leto will go to the Oscars: “I’ll come with my mother and I’m looking forward to meeting Léa Seydoux and be sitting next to her.”
About her outfit: “It’s Camille Seydoux, Léa’s sister, who is my stylist. I don’t know yet what my outfil will look like because there is some retouching to be done, but it will be a long strapless silver dress (made by Dior).”
About her possible speech in case of victory: “Whenever I prepare a speech, I fuck it up. It happened in America. I feel it brings the evil eye. If I need to talk tonight, I’ll improvise.”
