Pale worthy of Noh theater, large red mouth red, blue eyes, muscular body of a girl who spent her youth in Maine to play boy games, languorous and broken voice like Audrey Hepburn in the early morning after a hangover, in Breakfast at Tiffany's,. Here is Liv Tyler :Givenchy from head to the toes, like a second skin. "During my first fashion show, I was dressed as Audrey Hepburn, with a pearl necklace, a little black dress and a jacket with tightly-fitting skirts. I think that's why Givenchy has thought of me to be one of his muses. I like this brand fresh, couture, stylish and accessible. At Givenchy, they liked my cool side."

A model mother, friend of Mick Jagger and Elvis Costello. A rocker father, Aerosmith's iconic leader, whom she learned the identity at the age of 12. Another rocker father who raised her, Todd Rundgren. An Education which comes from backstage concerts. Appearances in Aerosmith videos. Elf romantic in the Lord of the Rings, Lolita in Stealing Beauty, delicious nurse in Lonesome Jim, cell biologist crazy in The Incredible Hulk, Liv Tyler goes where the wind pushes her with the carelessness and flair of the nomads. The birth of her son Milo allows her to perfect this bohemian look. The press is full of interviews where she talks about comfy pajamas from Shanghai Tang (the only ones capable of warming her when she finds herself alone in a hotel room) or the comfort of her size 43 slippers (which she bought in New Zealand), and shots where she is seen with UGG boots, long skirts and high-tech stroller walking down the streets of Greenwich Village and attend all organic shops down the block.

"My grandmother taught me to take care of myself and feed me well. She sends packets of raspberry vitamin C, which I put in a bottle of Evian. Sometimes I drink 5 liters per day. I eat lots of brown rice, seeds, fruits and vegetables. My guilty pleasure is the chicken broth with a little ginger and coconut milk." While saying this, she is testing the texture of blushes while Nicolas Degennes, artistic director of Givenchy makeup, officiating: "I love the smell and texture of the powders. I love the taste of lip gloss. I think I have cosmetics under my skin. My grandmother again. She is from the time when women began to powder with large tassels of feathers that had the colors of candy."

"Thank you. I look fabulous." She tries on clothes, white linen shirt, shorts, big beige cashmere sweater, a hat. On his walkman: Melody Nelson, by Gainsbourg. Liv swallows a large glass of herb juice, takes two strawberries. She is ready to shoot. Before she rushes to the terrace at Le Mirador, which looks down on Lake Leman, and looks to pass the only cloud in the day, which can not even hide his eyes to blue.
