There is a difference between being gorgeous and being beautiful, stunning or even pretty. Angelina Jolie is stunningly beautiful, Megan Fox is pretty similar to the former and Anna Friel is gorgeousness personified. In fact, I cannot think of a more gorgeous girl about town than her. So I put together a look book based on her West End stage door exists using my new polyvore collage toy.
Taking inspiration from the old Hollywood/Bright Young Things era for her evening look – complete with flapper dresses, bias-cut floor lengths and a Veronica Lake-style mame, Anna’s inherent sense of style is blossoming into its own at the moment. I wonder if she has a stylist or what the deal is.
She was always gorgeous, but isn’t it crazy how good grooming (her stint in the US must have something to do with this), a good selection of clothes and a serene expression can turn a girl from pretty actress to stage star.
During the day, she keeps the look modern by wearing biker boots with her outfits ( a trick Tamara Mellon likes to use as well), but maintaining immaculately 1940s style hair and crimson painted lips and perfectly manicured hands. Note that she does not wear any jewellery or handbags –accessories are kept to the bare minimum, a trick Kate Moss used to pull off at the height of her Moss Clone fame.
Now Anna really is the one the watch this year. Fresh from starring as Holly Golightly in the stage adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffanys, she will soon star in a film London Boulevard alongside Ray Winstone, Colin Farrell, and Keira Knightley.
More famous across the pond for starring in that quirky drama Pushing Daisies, here in Blightly she is very much associated with that infamous girl on girl screen kiss which caused a national debate, back in the 90’s. In between causing controversy and looking like a cross between Rita Hayworth and Kate Moss, Ann has ranked up a number of awards for her stage and screen performances – achieving that incredible balance so many actors strive for.
This lady is ready for the big screen.
