Her great presence and grace make Laëtitia Casta one of France's most chic icons. These assets were evident to the recruiter for the Madison modelling agency in 1993, when Laëtitia was spotted on her family's island of origin, Corsica. This was the beginning of an international career marked by couturiers falling over themselves to use her in their collections: from Jean-Paul Gaultier to Yves Saint Laurent, to Chanel, Givenchy and Ralph Lauren, Laëtitia Casta has modelled for all the biggest names in fashion and has become a source of inspiration for renowned designers.
A brand ambassador for L'Oréal Paris for more than ten years, Laëtitia made her first foray into acting in 1999 when she was 20. Casta played the role of Falbala in Asterix and Obelix vs Caesar. Following on from this, Laëtitia appeared in many more films, on both the big and the small screen. In 2011, she was nominated at the Césars for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Brigitte Bardot in the film Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life. This was a highly-acclaimed role, guaranteeing her a bright future in the film industry. The proof of this was to come in 2011, with her next role in The New War of the Buttons, directed by Christophe Barratier.
Eager for new challenges, Laëtitia has also appeared on the stage. In 2004, she played the role of Ondine, in the play of the same name by Jean Giraudoux. In Ondine, she was directed by the celebrated Jacques Weber. In 2008, she performed at the théâtre de la Madeleine in Elle t'attend (She is Waiting for You).
