You may know her as Quinn Fabray in Glee or as Robert De Niro’s daughter in The Family, but actress Dianna Agron is pretty skilled as a director, too. She went behind the camera for Tory Burch and filmed L’Américaine, starring Margaret Qualley and Tory’s new Paris Collection. Here, we talk to her about the experience, her favorite spots in the City of Light and her all-time greatest directing icons.

I got involved with this film because…
It started off as a complete joke. You know, the kind of thing where you say to a friend, I could do a video for you… and then the joke becomes a reality. It was such a happy coincidence.

And the inspiration behind it…
I love old movies. It was what I was bottle-fed on. And An American in Paris is one of my all-time favorite loves. So when I was brainstorming ideas, this one particular scene in that move, the one I drew inspiration from, became the most obvious choice to move forward from, adapt and take shape from there.

Favorite moment in the film…
Every time Margaret laughs. Or giggles. Her infectious joy is something I thrive on. I just love it.

And one fun behind-the-scenes moment from filming…
Every night after filming we were able to have a little moment of Paris. My Paris. My favorite restaurants, spots and whatnot. I am such a Francophile. It never gets old. That was the extra bit of joy. And I say this because every bit of filming (during the day) was a treat and a joy to me. I can never pick a favorite moment of filming because it all is a part of the fabric that is the final project.

Greatest challenge filming…
The time we had and the weather. It was raining, and we had quite a bit of dialogue to shoot outside. But you make do and you figure it out.

Being in front of the camera vs. behind it…
So different. I love them both, equally.

The directing bug first bit when…
I was in high school. I would film my friends and cut together “movies” and they were so appreciative and surprised by the quality. It came naturally and I love it as much as I did then. That begin said, I love each experience as an opportunity to learn more.

My cinematic influences as a director…
Besson. Kubrick. Allen. Burton. The list goes on and on.

My first time in Paris…
I was 20. And I fell in love immediately. I am so grateful for Paris. It consumes you. Challenges you to think about what it is you really love. And what you’ll do for it in return.

And the Dianna Agron guide to Paris would include stops at…
La Palette. All of St. Germaine, really. Beaux-Arts, The museums. Random art galleries. The best is to get lost and keep on getting lost.

My favorite piece in the Paris Collection…
I love the feathered collared bits on the shirts. It is the details that get me. Those. And the plaid underbelly of the skirts. No detail is spared.

My personal styling tip…
Don’t think too hard, and don’t listen to the rules.

Best advice received…
To thine own self be true. What a powerful, wonderful world to be in. When you know what that truly means
