Interviews  •  By  •  Comments Off on Alicia Vikander’s Style Interview with ASOS

ASOS – With at least four films due to be released in Y2K15, 26-year-old Swedish actress Alicia Vikander is a real ‘watch this face’ kinda lady. Her major cinematic moments to date – Anna Karenina and Oscar-winning A Royal Affair – have supplied us with some SRSLY pinnable red carpet appearances and her latest film, Testament of Youth, based on the WWI memoir by Vera Brittain, is set to do the same. We asked the Gothenburg-born actress everything you’d want to know, from the red carpet dress she loved to hate to the holiday hot spot she’s next up for visiting.

If I were to open your wardrobe right now, what would I find?
I don’t have a wardrobe at the moment as I’m renovating my flat, so I have everything out on racks. I’m very good at getting rid of anything I don’t wear; I pass on a lot of my things to my girlfriends. I think last time I gave away 20 pairs of shoes!

Do you prefer to be dressed up or dressed down?
Dressed down. Definitely. I love the fit of Acne jeans.

Is there a film you like to watch for style inspiration?
Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette (2006) is an incredible piece of art when it comes to costume. Then I got the chance to dress like it myself in A Royal Affair. I’ve only fainted once in my life and that was because I had to wear a corset during filming!

Favourite red carpet outfit you’ve worn?
The Elie Saab gown I wore to the 2013 Oscars. You don’t see it in the pictures, but I’m almost totally naked underneath – they just put a few extra studs over the nipples! So I felt extremely sexy even though I was totally covered up as it had a high neck and long sleeves.

Interviews  •  By  •  Comments Off on Alicia Vikander on Vera Brittain and ‘Testament of Youth’

HERALD SCOTLAND – As a three-year-old, Alicia Vikander would sometimes sleep in the wings at the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, where her mother was a regular on stage, performing classics by Shakespeare and Moliere.

She recalls one moment when she woke up to see her mum passing through a set of gates. “I think it might have been in Twelfth Night and she suddenly slams the door; I thought she had gone for ever,” says the 26-year-old. “I think I had quite a big breakdown at the time.”

In metaphorical terms, the young Vikander is this year set to pass through a set of gates all of her own. By the end of 2015, she will have gone from rising talent to bona fide superstar. The actor, who first caught the eye of the English-speaking world in Joe Wright’s stylish 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina, has no fewer than nine films readying for release – famous directors are clamouring to work with her – with at least six already scheduled to hit cinemas this year, the first of which, Testament of Youth, has already drawn a clutch of critical plaudits.

The film is based on the 1933 book by celebrated writer and fervent pacifist Vera Brittain, which stands as one of the few memoirs of the Great War published by a woman, recalling with studied precision the people she lost, including her first love, Roland Leighton, brought to life in the movie by Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington.

“When I read the book and the script, it felt like she could have been a girl of my age at this time, now,” says Vikander when we meet in a chic London hotel.

“Then, suddenly, a few more lines down the page it’s a woman who cannot get on the train without a chaperone. It describes when she touched fingers with this young boy she fell in love with, and how they held hands for the first time after they’d already met 10 times.
