Léa added: “The Capucines represents for me the quintessence of French know-how. I am very proud to be the ambassador of this bag that I love and wear every day.”
A spokeswoman for Vuitton added that while Monroe was “an everlasting source of inspiration”, they also wanted the snaps to showcase the “fantasy of Bond girls”.
Léa is set to return as Madeleine Swann alongside 007 Daniel Craig in the upcoming James Bond film, ‘No Time to Die’.
