The wholesome doe-eyed Brit beauty, actress Felicity Jones, takes a dark and sultry turn in her acting career during a film noir fashion shoot for Vogue Italia, and we are positively obsessed with her transformation!
Poker-straight hair with a thick fringe of bangs, and a smoky eye with rich plum-hued lips play up the actress’s unique brand of exoticism. Check out these photos, shot by Tom Munro and styled by Arianne Phillips.
Best known for her performance as Anna in Drake Doremus’s Like Crazy, Jones won a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011. She had to do her own hair and make-up in the film, while the dialogue was entirely improvised.
Her performance earned comparisons to Carey Mulligan’s Academy Award-nominated role in An Education. She also received the Best New Hollywood Award for the film at the 2011 Hollywood Film Awards.
The petite actress, at only 5’3″ tall, has a large presence and looks like a glamazon in these shots.
But she’s not just a vapid pretty face: the Oxford-educated siren was recently announced as the new face of both Burberry, below…
…and Dolce & Gabbana!
Felicity has that incredible range in her modeling that’s associated with fine acting.
“In many ways they are actually very similar,” she said. “The process of getting ready is very important; going from being you, to being someone else. You see the change happen when you’re sitting in the make-up chair. The idea of theatre is so important to Stefano [Gabbana] and Domenico [Dolce], and as an actress who likes to explore new characters, that’s really appealing,” she added.
Talent, beauty, and brains. We call that a winning combination!
