Rachel Weisz for Marie Claire September 2012

With her new movie, ‘The Bourne Legacy’, hitting cinemas today in London, it’s no wonder Rachel Weisz was selected by Marie Claire UK as their cover girl for September 2012.

The 42-year-old actress looked enchanting wearing a Jason Wu gown from the Fall 2012 collection, which was captured by Tesh for the cover.

She continues to smoulder in the rest of her editorial, which sees her don a black and red Lanvin look, a Sophia Kokosolaki chiffon black dress and a pretty floral Dolce & Gabbana frock.

She talked to Marie Claire about swapping teenage rebellion for motherhood, Oscar-winning roles and marriage.

On if it was love at first sight with 007 husband Daniel Craig: “I’m going to change the subject… It wasn’t really like that. We’d been friends for ages.”

On living with another actor: “We don’t sit around talking about acting but you both understand you’ve got to be flexible. Every few months you start a new job.”

On not being bothered by the increased interest in her private life: “As far as downsides go, I don’t think it’s a big one. It’s something we deal with together.”

On not being perfect: “I have countless flaws – have you got a year?’ she says, standing tall in a Sophia Kokosolaki dress. ‘Hopefully, as one gets older, one learns to deal with the flaws that really affect other people.”

On combining acting with motherhood: “Like any job, there are days when you’re just pulling your hair out. The same as anyone who wants to be with their kid or husband. Every mother feels that don’t they? Of course sometime’s it’s great to get away and feel, ‘Hooray, I’m not changing nappies today.’ I mean, I love my son but it’s not without conflict.”

Who Wore Lanvin Better? Charlize Theron or Rachel Weisz

Charlize Theron was first seen wearing this Lanvin sleeveless dress from the Fall 2012 collection while busy promoting her summer flicks, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘Prometheus’ on ‘The Today Show’, back in May. 

The blonde bombshell accessorized with Christian Louboutin ‘Decoupata’ ankle booties, which certainly spice up this rather ‘careful’ look for the bold actress. However, little did we know she wouldn’t be the only actress to flaunt her sexy bod in this simple-looking frock.

Rachel Weisz took the same approach while also promoting her latest flick ‘The Bourne Legacy’ on ‘Good Morning America’ in New York City this week, exactly two months later wearing the emerald-green version of the dress. 

The British actress paired her dress with nude lace-up Gianvito Rossi peep-toe heels and left the rest of her look clean. The sleeveless chic number shows off her svelte frame to a tee.

Both stars certainly have the figure to pull of this neoprene sheath dress, but I’m not exactly crazy about the design on either; it’s kind of a safe choice for both, but appropriate for morning television shows.

However, I’m partial to side with Rachel as I like her choice of Gianvito Rossi heels with the green frock better.

Rachel Weisz In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Bourne Legacy’ New York Premiere

Rachel Weisz was joined on the red carpet for the New York premiere of ‘The Bourne Legacy’ held at the Ziegfeld Theater last night wearing head-to-toe black.

Even though black isn’t my favourite colour on the red carpet, the British actress looked sensational wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture dress.

The black strapless bustier calf-length dress with a side split from Raf Simons’ first Dior Couture offerings is our second look at this collection on the red carpet.

I know some of you struggle with this length, but with her chic styling she gives this look a regal air of sophistication.

With her hair styled in an elegant updo and a bold red lip colour, Rachel added a Bulgari Serpenti white gold and full pave diamond bracelet, a black Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora Domino’ clutch with gold hardware and a lustworthy pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Bow Bow’ T-strap sandals to her look.

Rachel Weisz In Lanvin – Good Morning America

Rachel Weisz was spotted on her way to the ABC studios this morning in New York City to join Jeremy Renner to promote their new movie, ‘The Bourne Legacy’ on ‘Good Morning America’.

She gets her campaign off to an amazing start wearing a Lanvin Fall 2012 sleeveless dress.

The emerald-green frock with darting details at the waist was styled with a pair of nude lace-up Gianvito Rossi peep-toes.

With her dark chocolate waves tumbling down her back, Mrs Craig proves she is a worthy L’Loreal ambassador with a flawless beauty regime.

I much prefer Rachel’s above-the-knee version of this dress. Do you?
