LA-based model Elisa Sednaoui is 24 years old, strikingly beautiful (we couldn't stop staring at her at that Marni at H&M launch party), has a really cool accent (she's Italian, French and Egyptian) and is one of Karl Lagerfeld's top muses. Oh, and her godfather is Christian Louboutin. Jealous yet? She's also wildly multitalented and has flexed her acting chops in a slew of international films including Eastern Drift, Love Lasts Three Years, and most recently The Legend of Kaspar Hauser with Vincent Gallo.

In the March issue of C magazine, Sednaoui reveals that she can now add filmmaker to her marketable repertoire, thanks to her latest producing and co-directing stint for the Egypt-based documentary, Kullu Tamam. The title name is Arabic for “everything is good" and was made "to expose how different rural generations are coping with the uprisings in the Middle East," she tells C. Next stop: Oscars?
