Who better to be our Firefly Fox while Teissia is traveling in France, than the Parisian muse herself, Clemence Poesy? This Paris born babe is not only an extremely talented actress, but a leading fashion icon who claims that she never hires a stylist. What's not to love?

“I think what is interesting in life is all the cracks and all the flaws and all the moments that are not perfect.”
