Elle Cover Story (March 2011) – “Keira 4 Tom!”

Whats the story?:

Keira Knightley (actress / model) discusses her newest venture with designer Tom Ford – modelling for his first womenswear collection.

Interviewed by: Alice Wignall

Photographed by: Terry Tsiolis

Styled by: Anne-Marie Curtis

” On one side of the room, a nice young woman in a great dress, working hard, doing her best at the end of a long day, full of flu and starting to feel it. On the other…Keira Knightley, there! Look! On the screen! Can you see? And that’s it, I think: the camera doesn’t just love her. It loves the very bones of her; it wants to eat her up and turn her into someone new.”

I felt Keira came across very well in the interview and looks stunning in the pictures. Has anyone else read the article? What are your thoughts on the new Tom Ford womenswear collection and do you think Keira was the right lady for the job?

Elle Culture (March 2011) – ‘My Life in Books’ by Sophie Dahl

Sophie Dahl (model but in my eyes, more importantly, granddaughter of Roald Dahl…how cool!) picks favourite books throughout her life. Surprisingly she didn’t pick a book written by the late great Roald Dahl – of which many had a great impact on my childhood. A stand out book for me that she picked was ‘The Magic Faraway Tree” by Enid Blyton.

A story of a tree with a different land at the top of it each week. I loved most of Enid Blyton’s stories when I was a child, the quaintness, naivety and fantasy which you can never seem to escape to once you enter adulthood.

What books have inspired you?
