Keira Knightley, Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara & Scarlett Johansson For W’s 40th Anniversary Covers

This November marks the 40th anniversary of W magazine and the start of a year long celebration of their rich history of storytelling through fashion photography.

The oversized November anniversary issue, which hits national newsstands on October 23, features Keira Knightley, Mia Wasikowska, Rooney Mara and Scarlett Johansson who were transformed into an iconic look from the past four decades for each of their covers which were shot by Steven Klein.

Keira channels the 00s wearing a Chanel tweed jacket, red hot lips and a platinum blonde Tilda Swinton-esqe do.

Wearing a flame-coloured wig and striking eye makeup, Mia channels the 80s donning a Balenciaga dress with colourful Solange Azagury-Partridge statement earrings.

Sporting a bob hairdo, Rooney channels the 70s wearing Prada and an Albertus Swanepoel hat.

Even with the nose ring and two-tone hair, Scarlett still oozes sex appeal wearing Dolce & Gabbana and red hot lips for her 90s cover.

Mia Wasikowska In J. Mendel – ‘Lawless’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

I knew the colour pop for the ‘Lawless’ photocall was temporary and that Mia Wasikowska would opt for a dark colour for this evening’s Cannes Film Festival premiere.

Wearing her cropped hair in a braided bun, the Australian actress glided gown the red carpet in a J. Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

Her plum textured v-necked gown with a gathered center and draped sleeves, without the cut-out, was simply styled with Chopard diamond jewels.

Normally I find it hard to warm to Mia’s red carpet style, but I love this gown on this occasion.

Mia Wasikowska In Prada & Jessica Chastain In Herve L. Leroux – ‘Lawless’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Mia Wasikowska attended a photocall for her latest movie, ‘Lawless,’ during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival earlier today.

The Australian actress wore a colourful Prada print dress.

Her uncharacteristicly vibrant, print knee-length cap sleeve dress was teamed with coral Prada slingbacks.

A simple side-parted hairstyle and barely there makeup completed the look.

Jessica Chastain joined her co-star wearing a dress with a striped top and black pencil skirt.

Giuseppe Zanotti slingbacks with an etched-out heel accessorized her look.

On this occasion, she kept her hair simple by opting to keep it straight, with a single braid.

Let’s hope she can top yesterday night’s premiere with an even better look tonight.

Mia Wasikowska In Prada – 2012 Met Gala

Mia Wasikowska joined a number of celebrities wearing Prada at the 2012 Met Gala in New York City last night.

The young actress looked prim and pretty wearing a raspberry cady-silk short-sleeve gown with a black waistband and high neck collar enhanced with black crystal embroidery.

Prada shoes and clutch accessorize the look.

Retro-waves and dark lips – two of the night’s biggest beauty trends – add the perfect finishing touches.

Front Row @ Miu Miu Fall 2012

Miu Miu also had a celeb-packed front row yesterday.

Mia Wasikowska: The current face of Miu Miu was front and centre wearing a bi-colour pink-and-black dress with a flared skirt. This is a typically demure choice for the actress, but I wish she would opt for shoes in a colour other than nude just once.

Lea Seydoux: The French actress was in head-to-toe Prada, which is not surprising considering she’s the face of Prada’s Resort 2012 ad campaign. What is surprising is that she’s cut off all her lovely hair. I’m not sure if it is for a new role, or if she just fancied a change, but I did not recognise her. She donned an embroidered black Prada dress with her second pair of Prada flame heels, this time in green. A black flame clutch completed her look.

Katy Perry: The Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012 ‘Queen of the Front Row’ donned a cute pink Prada Spring 2012 flame-print pleated dress. I love her quirky accessories which include a blue Prada Saffiano Lux Pyramid bag with studs and the Prada flame sandals in lemon, but that hair goes from bad to worse.

Kate Mara: The actress opted for a rich, warm berry Miu Miu look featuring a leather trend with jewel button, worn over a top with a black Peter Pan embellished collar and shorts to match. I’m not so crazy about the fuchsia-pink Miu Miu peep-toes – they feel a tad stark against the berry – but I do like the leather pochette.
