Though you may know Mlanie Laurent for her magnificent portrayal of a vengeful woman in Quentin Tarantino's hit film Inglourious Basterds, you may not know that this stunning beauty is also a director and a writer. She's also an accomplished French actress, having already appeared in over twenty films. (You may also be surprised to find out that Laurent had to actually learn English for her role in Tarantino's movie.)
Here we see Laurent beautifully shot by photographer Justin Cooper. I love the composition, the fact that they're in black-and-white, the bokeh and, of course, Laurent's breathtaking beauty.
