Imogen Poots for Flare March 2014

FLR03_cover

Imogen Poots graces the March 2014 cover for Flare Canada. With the cover story being ‘Find Your Prints’, it’s not surprising that the actress wears prints throughout her editorial.

On the cover she wears a Jil Sander dress with Alexander Wang shoes, with the rest of her editorial seeing her wear Miu Miu, Aquilano.Rimondi, Opening Ceremony, Louise Goldin and Honor.

The ‘That Awkward Moment’ star talks to the mag about finding her calling, turning down girlfriend roles, her hero Jennifer Lawrence and her fashion icon Courtney Love, which now explains a lot about Imogen’s style.

What Zac Efron has to say about her: “Scenes with Imogen were special because they felt effortless. She has this playful side that brings out the best in everyone around her. I often made an ass of myself just to hear her laugh. She has no idea how great she is.”

On finding her calling in life: “All these actors ‘knew’ at age three. ‘I shat my pants, but I knew I wanted to be an actor.’ For me, it was just a silent recognition that I wanted to do it; it wasn’t something I was very loud about, ever.”

On turning down “the girlfriend” roles: “It’s when a role simply becomes a device that it gets disappointing. I was talking to one director about the girl in his film, and I said, ‘I think it’d be interesting to explore this,’ and, ‘Does she make this choice because of that?’ And he said [puts on a strong nasal American accent], ‘Look, she’s just gotta be hot, OK?’ And I remember walking out of there and being like, ‘I’m not gonna do that.’”

On her co-star and close friend Aaron Paul: “He’s the antithesis of Jesse in Breaking Bad, thank goodness. But also it’s his ability to be so versatile.”

On her fashion icon, Courtney Love: “The other day, when I was leaving the house for a party in this slip dress with these red lips and my hair all crazy, someone said [puts on American accent], ‘I dunno, it’s all a bit Courtney Love.’ And I was like, ‘Awesome, that’s perfect! See you later!’”

On the LA party scene: “You can dip in and out—have a good time when you want to—but it’s not real. It’s not there in the morning, none of it. It’s a shame to exist purely on the pulse of the party.”

On her love of New York: “I fell in love with it. Walking around just feels so cinematic. I find the aristocratic parts of London so unattractive and angular; the architecture is so white and gated. But in New York, it’s different—even uptown it’s really grand, and there’s no real segregation there. It’s all mixed up.”

On her hero, Jennifer Lawrence: “There’s a sense of lightness to her. By the look of it, she’s not trying. You can tell when someone is putting on a role. If someone really believes in what they’re saying, it’s quite hard to find cracks.”

On choosing the right roles: “It’s difficult when you’re just starting out, because you want to experience something. With That Awkward Moment, you could argue I’m just playing the girlfriend of Zac Efron, but the director was such a creative force and let me make her my own. I loved being part of something that felt so relevant and fresh.”

Imogen Poots In Stella McCartney – ‘That Awkward Moment’ LA Premiere

Imogen Poots In Stella McCartney - 'That Awkward Moment' LA Premiere

Imogen Poots attended the LA premiere of ‘That Awkward Moment’ held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Monday (January 27) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress continued her run of LBDs wearing this sweet ultra-mini frock from Stella McCartney.

I know many of you aren’t fans of Stella McCartney’s work, but I so love the playful appeal of this dress, with the sculptured bodice and draped detailing, that the minuscule length isn’t a concern.

At the end of her lengthy pins are a delightful pair of Christian Louboutin pattern-printed pumps with no jewels to speak of.

A look from Imogen wouldn’t be quite complete for me if there wasn’t some slight dishevelment, so I love the purposely messy bun.

Her Louis Vuitton dress got a thumbs down; is this look much improved for you?

Imogen Poots In Louis Vuitton – ‘That Awkward Moment’ New York Screening

Imogen Poots In Louis Vuitton - 'That Awkward Moment' New York ScreeningImogen Poots attended the New York screening of ‘That Awkward Moment’ at the Sunshine Landmark theatre on Wednesday (January 22).

Apparently paying no mind to the wintry weather, the British actress picked out an all-black ensemble from the dramatic Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 collection.

The scoop-neck frock with its decorative, sequin embellishment and sheer netted detail was modified from its runway days as a halter dress. Imogen did style the look with the same Stephen Sprouse-esque sheer tights, which she wore with peep-toe, platform sandals.

Although I appreciate her willingness to trod on edgy territory with this look, it didn’t really come together for me—especially not with that too-messy low bun.

Awkward fashion moment or not?

Imogen Poots In Rag & Bone – British Independent Film Awards 2013

Imogen Poots In Rag & Bone - British Independent Film Awards 2013

Imogen Poots attended the British Independent Film Awards 2013 held at Old Billingsgate Market in London on Sunday evening.

As always, there is a feeling of dishevelment when it comes to Imogen’s red carpet look, but there is something quite endearing about it.

She wore a crushed-silk Rag & Bone Spring 2014 look featuring black spaghetti straps, which she styled with a Prada clutch and pewter-glitter-and-black Prada platform peep-toes.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a messy updo completed her look.

Charming or messy?

Front Row @ Miu Miu Spring 2014

Front Row @ Miu Miu

The Palais d’Iena in France played host today to the charming wiles of designer Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu Spring 2014 runway show during Paris Fashion Week—and to a packed front row of starlets who all showed their affection for the brand in head-to-toe Miu Miu looks.

Dianna Agron: Donning a palette of midnight blue and black, the ‘Glee’ girlie was sophisticated in a floaty frock and embellished overcoat—even if the bright teal clutch was a borderline confusing addition.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ darling looked chic in a leather LBD that got kicked up with a sparkling beaded neckline and the pop of a bright fuchsia lip that I loved.

Lena Dunham: In perhaps one of her more classic style exits to date, the ‘Girls’ star covered up in a fire-engine red coat, worn over a simple black dress and amped up with a metallic statement cuff and necklace.

Imogen Poots In Prada – ‘Filth’ London Premiere

Imogen Poots In Prada - ‘Filth’ London Premiere

Imogen Poots joined Joanne Froggatt on the red carpet yesterday evening for the London premiere of ‘Filth’ held at the Odeon West End.

Channelling a laidback retro look, the actress wore a Prada Fall 2013 lingerie-inspired steel-grey flower-print silk slip dress with black lace trims, which she styled with Prada red suede platforms.

Whenever I see someone wearing a slip dress with red lips, tousled blonde tresses and dark eyebrows, Courtney Love springs to mind.
