L'Oréal's Alizée Carrasco embodies the sought-after idea of "French girl style." While a tracksuit wouldn't be the first thing you'd reach for when attempting to replicate the look, the Parisian native proves that sportswear is just as good as a Breton shirt when it comes to effortless dressing.
The 23-year-old works as a retail designer for the cosmetics giant, designing, drawing, and even sometimes installing the furniture found in its L'Oréal Luxe Travel Retail stores.
When asked about her day-to-day personal style, Carrasco is casual. “I don't really have a style. I wear what I like, I can be very feminine one day and dressed like a little boy the other," she says. "I think people who have a ‘style’ can't really fit a category. Being stylish is doing whatever you think will suit you and being confident about it.”
When it comes to sneakers, Carrasco’s go-to's are the ultra-versatile Vans Old Skool, PUMA Suede and New Balance WR996 D.
For anyone who may be interested in a career in beauty or fashion, Carrasco offers three pieces of advice: Be confident and creative, don't forget that your work is only a part of your life, and keep learning from everything and everybody that you meet.
