Yummy mummy Rachel Weisz has a commandingly sexy look on the cover of the August 2009 edition of Harper’s Bazaar UK.

She looks stunning wearing a black velvet Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 dress with an asymmetrical neckline and a bejeweled shoulder detail.

The rest of her editorial shot by Cliff Watts is pretty amazing too. I love the Alexander McQueen studded thigh-high boots below. You’d think Rachel is too sweet and innocent to pull something like that off, but she channels her inner diva to give us some fierce looks.

Here are some extracts from her interview with Catherine Fairweather.

On her Oscar: “It’s proudly displayed on a shelf in the bathroom. The best room of the house.”

On her teens: “I wasn’t the kind of girl who’s so pretty she never had to develop conversation skills. I was always thinking. Always curious.”

On botox: Botox should be banned for actors, as steroid are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?”

On London girls vs US girls appearances: “I love the way girls in London dress; it’s so different to the American “blow-dry and immaculate grooming thing.”
