This time last year, model-turned-actress Camila Morrone was making headlines for her breakout role in indie flick Mickey and the Bear. Like everyone else in Hollywood and elsewhere, however, her momentum came to a halt in 2020 as projects were put on hold. After passing time during the pandemic learning Italian, fostering (and adopting) huskies, and traveling, 23-year-old Morrone is gearing up to get back to work in the new year. Last November, the Argentinian LA-native announced that she’ll be joining the cast of Amazon limited-series Daisy Jones and the Six, and production is slated to start early 2021. With January inching closer, she’s itching to get back on set and work with the Riley Keogh-led cast.

But before returning to acting, Morrone kicks off the holiday season with a special Coach campaign. Sitting next to her Christmas tree with mistletoe in hand, she gets into the festive spirit while showing off Coach’s most gift-worthy accessories of the season, including a pair of shearling boots and a leather tote. A returning face to the Coach family, the actress is also joined by Jennifer Lopez, Michael B. Jordan, Megan Thee Stallion, and more ambassadors in their own Holiday is Where You Find It vignettes. Here, Morrone speaks exclusively with L’OFFICIEL about all things holiday, from her family traditions to her guilty pleasures, along with filling us in on who stole the show of her Coach photoshoot.

                                

L'OFFICIEL: How will the holidays look different for you and your family this year?

CAMILA MORRONE: I've never spent a Christmas away from my family, luckily, and work has never collided with that, but it looks like this year work may be conflicting with my Christmas festivities. It's a weird time for everyone and I'm curious to see how these holidays will go about. I'm not sure where my Christmas is being held this year and I know that I'm not doing a big celebration, so at least I got to live vicariously through my Coach holiday campaign.

L'O: What holiday tradition did you want to reflect in the campaign?

CM: I'm really into decorating the tree. I've done that every Christmas, and it's like my big thing with my mom. We pretty much start decorating the tree right after Thanksgiving. We move from Thanksgiving festivities onto Christmas festivities, so that's the fun thing to do Thanksgiving weekend. I like to have them around to get into the spirit. I've collected a really nice group of ornaments and things that I like to put on the tree that are meaningful. I usually stick to an all-gold or all-silver tree and then I always add fake snowflakes on top so it looks snowy and Christmas-y.
