Madame Aime is an album featuring the most gorgeous French actresses singing covers, mostly of 80s hits. Initiative of Madame Figaro, the magazine of newspaper Le Figaro. I got a copy of the mag that featured a photoshoot with all actresses, shot by Kate Barry. Philip Uminski and Bertrand Burgalat, who produced this album, are also featured. It's one of those albums that FS-fans just have to buy. I mean, Viriginie Ledoyen (pictured), Emmanuelle Beart, Emma de Caunes, Cécile Cassel, Valérie Lemercier, Léa Drucker, Isabelle Carré, Clothilde Courau, Mélanie Laurent, Joanna Preiss, Sylvie Testud - just calling these names out loud is a joy.
It's hard to pick songs (ok, well, not everyting is brilliant), but Virginie Ledoyen's version of Niagara's L'amour à la plage is great. Very Filles Fragiles-territory is Mélanie Laurent with Du bout des lèvres (orig. Barbara).
