ALICE ISAAZ: ”IT’S A BALANCE BETWEEN ELEGANCE AND NONCHALANCE”
Alice Isaaz dreamt of becoming a dancer as a young girl, and at some point, even a doctor. Acting wasn’t really on her mind – or at least she didn’t use to think so.
”While I was sorting stuff at my parents’ house I found a letter I wrote when I was a kid, answering to a casting ad in a TV magazine. It was never sent, but the idea of becoming an actress was already there I guess.”
Alice Isaaz has had a busy year. She stars in the upcoming Mademoiselle de Jonquières, premiering in September, and recently wrapped two other films, out next year.

”Probably my marinière, my sailor’s jumper. And my [Parisian label] Admise suit!”

”For me, it’s a balance between elegance and nonchalance. And always being natural and discreet.”
YOUR SISTER LAURA IS A FASHION EDITOR AT FRENCH ELLE. DOES SHE GIVE YOU STYLE ADVICE?
”She is the first person I ask when it comes to finding an outfit for an event. She always gives excellent advice. Luckily, we have the same taste in fashion, so we share wardrobes systematically. Sometimes when I see my sister wearing my pieces, I rediscover them. It helps seeing your wardrobe and forgotten pieces in a new light!”
HOW WILL YOU STYLE YOUR FAVOURITE ‘BONJOUR PARIS H&M’ PIECE THIS SUMMER?
”The boyfriend blazer is an essential piece, a real must-have that every woman should have in their wardrobe. It could be worn with a pair of denim trousers, a t-shirt and sneakers, or with a pair of chic, pleated trousers and a pretty pair of high heels. As I will spend all summer in Biarritz where the evenings can be chilly, it is definitely the one piece that I’ll bring! I also have a real crush on the viscose black dress, so chic!”
