VIOLET GREY’s latest addition to The Violet Files, features an exclusive look at actress and writer Julie Delpy’s beauty routine. Here are some highlights from the story and beautiful images.For some women, getting ready for a night out is less of a routine than a sacred ritual. (A specific playlist must be queued up. Fragrance always has to be applied last.) This is not the case for Julie Delpy. “I’m more joking and playing around,” confesses the Paris-born, Los Angeles-based actress/writer. “After all, it is putting on a dress and makeup, you know? It’s good to do it well but it’s also good to not obsess over it.”

“I’ve been faster [at getting ready] than any of my boyfriends. Even the least vain ones.” – Julie Delpy

“[When] I started in France, things were much more low-key. You could call Dior or anyone and they would lend you a dress. Now if a dress has been worn you can’t wear it again. I personally don’t care if I wear the dress that 10 people have worn already. I’d be happy to.” – Julie Delpy

For some women, getting ready for a night out is less of a routine than a sacred ritual. (A specific playlist must be queued up. Fragrance always has to be applied last.) This is not the case for Julie Delpy. “I’m more joking and playing around,” confesses the Paris-born, Los Angeles-based actress/writer. “After all, it is putting on a dress and makeup, you know? It’s good to do it well but it’s also good to not obsess over it.”

Not that the 44-year-old beauty needs much to look presentable. Her delicate features and soulful mien have captivated filmgoers for over three decades, beginning with her breakout role in Europa Europa (1990) and carrying through Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise trilogy, which earned Delpy, who co-wrote the latter two scripts, respective Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Having attended her fair share of film premieres and awards ceremonies over the years, Delpy is bemused by the fuss made over the red carpet nowadays. “[When] I started in France, things were much more low-key. You could call Dior or anyone and they would lend you a dress.” she recalls. “Now if a dress has been worn you can’t wear it again. I personally don’t care if I wear the dress that 10 people have worn already. I’d be happy to.”
