LUCIE DE LA FALAISE
With more than 20 years of modelling legacy, her iconic last name is just the tip of the iceberg. Experimental, bold, and a romantic at heart, Lucie de la Falaise shows BAZAAR her Parisian joie de vivre. If you could only wear one thing your entire life, what would it be? A dress. As a child, I always wore the classic little girl dresses with some smocking and a little bow at the back. No matter what I was wearing underneath, I always put a dress on top—even if I had jeans.
How has your style evolved throughout the years?
You go through phases as a teenager; you like trends. I had a pixie haircut when I was 19—that became my look for a couple of years. Then, I was pregnant, and of course, you start to wear more flowy things, and after, it’s back to wearing tight things again. It’s always evolving.
What’s your style secret?
I try not to go with trends but with what suits me, so I go back to the same type of silhouette that suits my body.
How do you carry your bag on a day-to-day basis?
If I’m going through an airport, I will just wear my crossbody bag so that my hands are free. On any given day, I usually have it on my shoulder, but if I get tired of that, then I prefer to have it on the crook of my arm.
How would you style your bag everyday?
I don’t always match it with the rest of my outfit. It’s my bohemian vibe; I think it’s nice when things are not too matchymatchy or perfect. It’s nice to have a little bit of wear and tear, especially with these beautifully expensive bags ... dress them down a little. Otherwise, I just feel too fancy!
What does “Diorever” mean to you?
Forever and ever and ever.
