Léa Seydoux was effortlessly chic for the New York screening of “Crimes of the Future” on Thursday night. The French actress gave a nostalgic Y2K feel by pairing preppy pieces with staple elements from the early aughts.

The “No Time To Die” star certainly mastered the early era aesthetic in a black suede mini dress. The sleeveless number was adorned with gold buttons and was held together with a thick belt. To give her ensemble a polished finish she teamed the garment with a crisp white button down shirt. The top had a wide collar and long billowy sleeves.

Seydoux parted her short pixie on the side and added a bold touch with red lipstick. The 36-year-old entertainer rounded out her look with black knee-high boots. The leather silhouette had an almond-shaped toe and sat on a stacked block heel. Popularized in the ‘60 go-go era, knee-high boots leave the wearer’s knee exposed, but cover the calves. Often worn with skirts, the style is a wise choice in fall and winter for protecting the leg from the elements while still allowing the wearer to show some leg.

Seydoux brings her fashion A-game every time she steps out. Whether she’s off-duty or gracing red carpets, she always exudes sophistication that nods to her Parisian roots. For footwear, she tends to gravitate towards statement silhouettes including, block-heeled sandals, wrap-around stilettos and a variety of boot stlyes.
