British born Rachel Weisz came to fame as the gorgeous but slightly troublesome Evelyn in The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001) movies. But I fell in love with her as Miranda in Bernado Bertolucci’s 1996 film Stealing Beauty. I was fascinated with her exotic and edgy beauty – those eyebrows! An Oscar winning actress who happens to be married to the current James Bond, Daniel Craig (lucky girl) and mother to son Henry, Rachel is definitely a stylish girl.
Weisz won an amateur modelling competition at age thirteen for the London-based Harpers & Queen, which as it turns out was judged by Hamish Bowels, Vogue’s European Editor at Large, “She was an absolute tearing beauty,” Bowles recalls. “A dash of Brooke Shields in Pretty Baby, with strong brows and a perfect Edwardian face.” – Vogue, Oct 2008.
Rachel has made her mark in movies from action blockbusters, to romantic comedies and indie dramas. Mesmerising to watch on screen, and she’s had some pretty good company with drop-dead handsome costars like Keanu Reeves, Ralph Fiennes, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds – she makes it pretty hard to take your eyes off her though. Oh and she has this deep, throaty voice too which just compels you to keep your eyes on her. I think that she would make a great voice for an animated movie or a talking book.
Simple elegance. Rachel shows off her curves, looks younger than her 42 years by a long-shot (not that 42 is by any means over the hill you understand) and when off duty, sticks to the classics. Denim jeans and leather jacket with a fabulous scarf and very dark shades to hide from the paparazzi.
love & light xx
