Une Fille Comme Les Autres

A short film created to celebrate Jalouse’s new formula, “Une fille comme les autres” (“An Ordinary Girl”) get its first outing on the Web.

Matthew Frost, the perennially fresh photographer and friend to the stars, had a great time directing this short feature. The script is by Fabien Prade, whose column “Mauvais Esprit” in Jalouse generates tons of fan mail at each issue.

We needed a heroine just as pretty and smart as the magazine itself: we chose supermodel Ashley Smith, who was recently picked to be the new face of Diesel. We couldn’t resist inviting a few high-profile extras too: blogger / it-girl Jeanne Damas, wacky creator Simon Jacquemus Gate, gorgeous designer Lizzie Nanut as well as the lovely Emilie and Fiona Kaboutchek Kareh. A very fine crowd indeed!

Finally, for a special French touch, we asked piano virtuoso Mattias Mimoun to compose the film’s soundtrack.
