The One French Girl Everyone's Obsessed With

Currently Channeling is a revived monthly series that makes a shoppable connection between fashion and cultural references such as film and music. If you’d like to see something channeled, let us know in the comments!

When it comes to French films, Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s 2001 feature Amélie takes the cake. Audrey Tautou’s portrayal of the quirky, lovable Parisian whose knack for imagination and adventure is one of our all-time favorite roles. Though the film is now 16 years old, it’s still an absolute favorite in our library.

In March of this year, an adaptation will hit the Broadway stage, which was more than enough inspiration to make Amélie our latest subject of our Current Channeling series.
