French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos captivates on the front of Madame Figaro’s September 29th, 2023 issue. The radiant smile she displays is captured by the lens of photographer Thiemo Sander. Adèle, in a sophisticated Fendi ensemble and Hanro briefs, exudes elegance while flaunting exquisite jewelry from Bvlgari.
In this cover story, stylist Cécile Martin meticulously curates a selection of attire, offering a visual banquet of luxurious textures and intricate designs. Exarchopoulos is portrayed in pieces from eminent fashion houses including Balenciaga, Courrèges, Jacquemus, Petit Bateau, Gucci, Ambush, MM6 Maison Margiela and Prada.
Her hair, styled by Christoph Hasenbein, complements the flawless make-up artistry by Harold James and a perfect manicure by Rachel completes the look.
With a filmography that boasts over thirty films, Adèle Exarchopoulos’s journey from the tumultuous success of “La Vie d’Adèle” to her recent roles reveals an artist who has mastered the art of balancing pleasure and exigence in her career.
The actress, who doesn’t shy away from the camera but appreciates brevity, is a blend of intensity, curiosity, sensuality, and humor. Her roles are as varied as they are captivating, from the emotionally charged Chloé in Jeanne Herry’s “Je verrai toujours vos visages” to the sniping professional in Mélanie Laurent’s “Voleuses.”
Freedom, for Adèle, is a journey of conquering fears and embracing the unknown. It’s a dance between the expectations of others and the inner echoes of self-discovery.
Becoming a mother has added another layer to Adèle’s understanding of love and relationships. “When my son was born, six years ago, the first thing I thought was: ‘Wow, so my mother loves me this much?’” This realization, profound and tender, underscores the depth of maternal love and the intricate weave of family bonds.
