Vanity Fair March 2012 Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”

Mia Wasikowska In Elie Saab – ‘Albert Nobbs’ New York Screening

Mia Wasikowska attended the New York screening of ‘Albert Nobbs’ which was held at the Modern Museum of Art last night.

The actress wore an Elie Saab Fall 2010 dress.

Her cap-sleeve high-neck LBD has a gathered detail on the waist and floral appliqué cascading from the shoulder.

The details on Mia’s dress are unfortunately lost in the dark setting, but they are clearly visible on the runway.

A quiffed bun, a beautiful red lip colour and black peep-toes completed her look.

Mia Wasikowska In Rodarte – 2011 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Mia Wasikowska attended the 2011 CFDA Vogue/Fashion Fund Awards at the Skylight SoHo in New York City last night.

The Australian actress gave us our second look at the Rodarte Spring 2012 collection on the red carpet.

On this occasion it’s the dress which is doing all the work.

This lapis-blue satin dress with chiffon stripes and a gathered neckline embellished with crystals is sensational – without question.

Sadly, however, Mia is not selling it to me.

From the hairstyle to the lack of makeup to the lacklustre satin pumps, I’m hoping that this dress will have a second run-out.

Mia Wasikowska In Gucci – “Restless” Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Mia Wasikowska promoted her new movie “Restless” during the 2011 Toronto Film Festival last week.

For the Premiere she wore a Gucci Fall 2011 shirtdress.

Her black and white houndstooth print long sleeve shirtdress features a bow detail at neck and waist.

Mia only added a pair of simple black pointed-toe pumps and red lipstick to her look.

I like the shirtdress, but I would have loved some bold accessories added to this look.

Maybe in red to match her lipstick.

A more polished hairstyle would’ve lifted this look also.

Mia Wasikowska In Louis Vuitton – Harper’s Bazaar Australia August 2011

Mia Wasikowska covers Harper’s Bazaar Australia for their August 2011 issue.

The Australian actress looks so ethereal in her Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 gown.

Her look in perfectly fitting for her new movie, “Jane Eyre” which is due to hit theatres in September.

Let’s hope this promo tour consists of colours other than just nude; which appears to be her favourite red carpet colour at the moment.

The rest of Mia’s editorial sees her wearing Tom Ford, Emilio Pucci, Rodarte, Chanel and Comme des Garçons.

The issue goes on sale Monday.

Mia Wasikowska In Valentino Couture – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Tree Of Life” Premiere

Mia Wasikowska arrived on the red carpet for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Tree Of Life” Premiere wearing one of her favourite designers: Valentino.

The Australian actress seems to have not only taken a shine to the fashion house, but she seems to love wearing nude or neutral colours also.

Whilst I love her Valentino Spring 2011 Couture gown with its dreamy flowing skirt, I’m not such a fan of her hairstyle which drastically ages her.

The neck piece and the large ribbon are two parts of the gown I wish Mia had kept for her look.

I also find the coral colour of her clutch quite jarring for some reason. Something more delicate like a soft rose pink clutch would’ve been preferred.
