Rachel Weisz is the cover girl for the March 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK dressed in a Gucci Spring 2013 raspberry 60s-inspired frock with bell sleeves and a cinched belted waist.

The actress looks radiant in her eight-page feature, shot by David Slijper, wearing Ralph Lauren, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Fendi.

Having played Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East in ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’, Rachel talks exclusively to Harper’s Bazaar about her penchant for playing darker film roles. She also discusses family life, juggling work and how much she loves playing a bad girl.

The full interview appears in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK on sale Tuesday 5th February. Also available as a digital edition. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On playing Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East: “Because Evanora revels in her badness, she revels in Machiavellian-ness. I guess being bad is a lot of fun. I just watched ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?’ for the very first time in my life last week. It blew my mind. It’s one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever seen, it’s psychological horror isn’t it? Terrifying. I love Bette Davis.”

On unleashing herself in the film realm: “That’s what’s so great about acting, you’re not really responsible. I mean, I’m polite to everyone on set and I’m not a struggle to work with, but in terms of how you get to treat people, it’s carte blanche, because it’s fiction – no one’s really going to get hurt. And it’s a very joyful place to let go.”

Rachel Weisz In Louis Vuitton - 2013 Golden Globe AwardsBest Actress nominee Rachel Weisz was escorted at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards by her handsome James Bond husband, Daniel Craig. But ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ star made quite the impression herself.

She donned another example that played to the sheer and solid trend with her interesting Louis Vuitton number.

The polka dot mesh, which reminded me of the designer’s earlier collaboration with dot artist Yayoi Kusama, emerged under a short, strapless LBD.

While the look tried to be playful, it didn’t feel fresh or exciting. The sheer netting of the leg-baring skirt pooled on the ground and looked even messy in some moments.

Jimmy Choo’s ‘Raven’ sandals and a Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch, both in black, completed the ensemble.

Rachel’s voluminous waves and sophisticated makeup were nice.

Rather unusually, she went earring-less for the evening, choosing instead a Bulgari statement cuff.

Rachel Weisz In Bottega Veneta - 'The Deep Blue Sea' New York Screening

Rachel Weisz is having a busy start to 2013, attending her second event in as many days.

Last night she promoted her latest movie, ‘The Deep Blue Sea’, with a screening at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City.

Dressed in a look from the Bottega Veneta Spring 2013 collection, this the second dress from this collection to take to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Her pretty terracotta daisy-print dress has a daytime/photocall feel to it, but this was a screening rather than a big-budget premiere.

I love her burgundy Charlotte Olympia ‘Dolly’ platform pumps and green Smythson ‘Mara’ clutch as they both give her Spring frock an autumnal vibe.

Rich dark wavy tresses and neutral makeup completed her look.

Rachel Weisz In Prada - 2012 New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Rachel Weisz walked the red carpet solo for the 2012 New York Film Critics Circle Awards held at Crimson in New York City yesterday evening.

The British actress wore a Prada Spring 2013 black satin dress with a floral embroidered placket and black-and-red silk circular stitched appliqués.

Red Charlotte Olympia satin pumps and a black Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch kept the black-and-red theme going, with red nails and lips adding more vibrant pops of colour to the look.

A simple updo completed her look.

Some of you have expressed that you are not a fan of the Prada Spring 2013 collection, so how does this look fare on Rachel?

Rachel Weisz was your Best Dressed Plus One for 2012.

The British actress did have her own movies to promote this year, including ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ and ‘The Bourne Legacy’, but she also provided the arm candy for Daniel’s blockbuster ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ and ‘Skyfall’ movie premieres.

This by no means suggests she played second fiddle to her husband Daniel Craig, as hard as she tried to fade into the background.

She was stunning in Alexander McQueen and even from the side view she was breathtaking in Chanel Couture.

Never has a side view red carpet look won BDOTW; that is how major that look was.

Even though we only got a view from the side, Rachel Weisz still wowed us wearing a Chanel Couture pale pink gown to Daniel Craig’s (her husband) ‘Skyfall’ Royal premiere.

Her attempts to blend in the background and try to go unnoticed failed as you crowned her best dressed of the week.

My favourite this week was Kelly Reilly in Naeem Khan. This is the second time I have featured the beautiful actress on my site, and this is her second win. That’s some record.

Between her stunning beaded gown, elegant poise and flawless makeup, what’s not to love?
