We met up with two of 2011’s most interesting and original actresses at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast on Wednesday morning and had chats with them about their individual tastes: Brit girls Andrea Riseborough and Felicity Jones.
Riseborough, the star of Madonna’s W.E., had pale red hair, and looked like a different person from her black haired cover of Harper’s Bazaar. She’s tiny, with very pale skin and was dressed in a black and cream lace Dolce & Gabbana dress that wasn’t their usual tight look.
“I tend to go with the more ethereal,” the rising British actress with five movies in the can told THR. “But at the same time, I like clothes to be pragmatic and a little eclectic. Do those things contradict each other? Not to me. About shooting five films in a year and a half? I’ve not had time to pee.”
One of the films she’s in is called Disconnect, and designer Marc Jacobs has a small part in it as an internet porn king. “It’s so funny to have watched Marc in that role,” she laughed. “He’s the opposite of that — so sweet and lovely. You can bet I’m going to be wearing a lot of his clothes. As many as I can get my hands on!”
Jones was in a blue-grey Calvin Klein 1940s-style dress with cool Miu Miu grey shoes and a grey/green Dolce & Gabbana bag — and of course, she is the new face of Dolce & Gabbana beauty, shot by Mert and Markus.
“I bought the shoes myself,” she told us. “I saw them and I just had to have them. I do naturally love fashion, love its theatricality, but you also, I think, should just enjoy it and be yourself with it. Of course I’m wearing a Dolce bag — I’ve gotten to know Stefano and Domenico, and they are so very very cool. I’m not sure people realize what great accessories they have!”
