Tank Top Tuesday

Oh, Audrey. The charming Ms. Tautou is one of my favorite French actresses. I fell in love with her in “Amelie” and never looked back. How could you not? I don’t even think it’s humanly possible. But she is not just the adorable gamine with the saucer eyes we all fell head over heels for. In “Dirty Pretty Things” and “A Very Long Engagement” and “Priceless” Audrey have proven that she isn’t just a one-hit wonder. Heck, I even sat through all 300 hours of Tom Hank’s bad hair in “The Da Vinci Code” to see her. (What, it wasn’t really that long? Seemed that way.) So, imagine my delight to find out that Audrey is a connoisseur of the tank top. C’est magnifique!Actually, this is just a clever (not clever, you decide) way to slip Audrey in a suit into Tank Top Tuesday. Audrey in a tank versus Audrey in a suit? God, Sophie’s choice was easy by comparison.Though, since we’re being perfectly honest, this next photo is the raison d'être of this post. Here is the first image of Audrey as Coco Chanel in the new biopic on the fashion maven, “Coco avant Chanel.” I must now go research whether Fandango will let me buy tickets to movies in France.

very nice...mmmmmm...yes very nice. Ms. Tautou also appears to be a fan of not wearing a bra...me likes!

Judith said...

Oh merci beaucoup indeed for these! She's one of my favourite actresses as well, though I must admit some of her films do fall flat for me. More French indie flicks, please!

Dru said...

Oooh, yeah. She is awesome.

I quite liked The DaVinci Code, but then I have a very weird taste in movies.

So, she's playing Coco Chanel? Niiice. Didn't know that. Thanks for that bit of info. :)

And all the pretty pics, obviously. :D

I think Audrey Tautou is one of the best actresses of the moment, and, sure, she is very sexy. She looks awesome in a tank top and men's shoes!

You one helluva internet researcher, Dorothy! She's not even on my radar, (yes, I did see Da Vinci Code, and liked it!)but you've made a very good case for why I should :)...uhm, have her on my radar, that is...

Oh, she's so lovely! Actually, A Very Long Engagement is one of my favorite movies of the last several years. I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it.

I think it is funny...
That aside, dear Dorothy,
If you make it to this side of the ocean, I'll buy the movie tickets...

Audrey : in.a.suit

That coco pic got me all *argh*, and I'm not really crazy about ma compatriote.
Thanks for diggin' it up !

There is something slightly Thunderbird-esque about that first tank shot of Audrey: her head looks way too big for her skinny legs & body.

No denying her beauty, however. Those big brown eyes *sigh*

I'm having to second Jasmine here. Holocaust humour...not so much.
