Margaret Qualley is the picture of natural elegance in her latest campaign, CELINE ESSENTIELS. The portrait leans heavily on bare makeup and bold, natural brows to convey a carefree and undaunted view of the actress, accented by a rustic, androgynous style. Qualley invokes an almost Western bravado in a loose-structured blazer, straight-legged denim, and pinstripe blouse; a strand of tousled hair falling over her face adds a touch of coyness to an otherwise confrontational gaze. The photoshoot, taken in Paris by Hedi Slimane, melds American confidence with an understated, French sensibility. In another photo, Qualley disrobes from a leather jacket in a mix of tough, elevated cool and feminine vulnerability. The breakout Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress has a way of leaving us wanting more.
