While Paris Fashion Week is off to a good start in the French capital, it is fitting that the trailer for “Haute Couture”, starring Franco-Algerian actress Lyna Khoudri, has been unveiled. Directed by French director Sylvie Ohayon, the new fashion-filled film hits theaters on November 10, 2021.
The film tells the story of a little woman named Esther (Nathalie Baye) who, after participating in her latest Haute Couture collection for Dior, his handbag is stolen by Jade (Khoudri), 20, at the metro station. With remorse, Jade decides to return the bag to Esther, who then invites the young girl to join Maison Dior as an apprentice.
The first time the 29-year-old has taken on the role of an aspiring fashion enthusiast. The rising North African star rose to prominence thanks to her role as Nedjma in the Algerian film “Papicha”, in which she played a young design stallion determined to organize a fashion show to protest against the escalation of the conservatism of the country in the midst of the Algerian civil war.
Director Mounia Meddour’s debut film premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2019 Cannes International Film Festival. For her work in the film, Khoudri won the Horizons Award for Best Actress at the 74th Venice Film Festival in Venice and was nominated in the Cesar’s Most Promising Actress category.
Khoudri would land many notable roles, including in Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed “The French Dispatch”, starring Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Willem Dafoe and more. She played an activist student and Chalamet’s love interest in the live-action film.
The emergent will also appear in a new two-part adaptation of Alexandre Dumas ‘classic French novel “Les Trois Mousquetaires”, in which she will star alongside François Civil as a lover, taking the role of Constance D.’ Artagnan, ex Bonacieux.
In addition, the actress of Algerian origin is currently filming “Novembre”, a thriller directed by Cédric Jimenez on the French anti-terrorism services while tracking down suspects after the Paris attacks in 2015.
