Isla and her Now You See Me co-stars walked the red carpet for a screening of their movie in Los Angeles last night. Isla’s date for the night was her mother, Elspeth Reid. Isla pulled off yet another winning look in a little black, white & blue embellished and patterned mini-dress, with a messy up-do – this is another new favourite for me, it’s so modern and fun and something really different from Isla. Check out the first 50 HQs from the screening in our Gallery, and scroll down this post for an article with quotes from the night. We’ll have more from this soon!
South African fans can check out Isla looking fabulous on the cover of the new issue of their Women’s Health magazine! They have used the pictures and interview from Isla’s cover for the UK edition of the magazine from last year. We never managed to get scans of that UK edition (my scanner is hopeless) so now you will get to read the fantastic interview – and Isla’s favourite yoga exercises – that it had.
Last night was the red carpet premiere for Now You See Me in New York City, and Isla and her co-stars were all in attendance! Isla looked incredible in a nude-coloured gown with black beaded detail, with her straight hair tied back in an up-do. I absolutely love this look on Isla, it’s so different for her, and it has immediately become one of my favourites of hers!
The first few HQ photos from the event can be seen in the Gallery, including a nice shot with co-star Jesse Eisenberg at the after-party. I will post more coverage from this event in the coming days!
On Thursday, catch Isla on US talk shows The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Talk! She is now promoting Now You See Me. Check your local listings for times.
I will bring you screencaptures & videos from both shows – hopefully – soon after.
Isla features in the pages of the June/July issue of Australian Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and thanks to our Aussie friend April, we have exclusive scans from the spread for you! The interview is mostly about Gatsby, and includes some great quotes from Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin about Isla. She also talks about her surprise at how her career has progressed, and that she considers her doppelganger Amy Adams a friend! Isla poses in various designer outfits in the brand new photoshoot. Check out our fabulous scans in the Gallery:
Isla graces the cover of the May 15th issue of UK Stylist magazine! It is yet another gorgeous, brand new photoshoot and accompanying interview. Read the interview at Stylist.co.uk or on our Press page, and find the cover and photoshoot pictures in our Gallery. If anyone can contribute scans of this then please get in touch, as we’d love to be able to see inside and share with everyone else
“The good thing about a drama is that everyone takes it seriously so you do feel like you can lose yourself in a scene. With comedy I can never do that because I’m always thinking ‘what’s something funny I could do now, how can I improvise, how can I make people laugh?'”
Isla and her Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann appeared on The Graham Norton Show in the UK earlier tonight and gave a very funny interview! Conversation ranged from Cannes, to Isla’s audition for Baz, to Isla’s training at the Lecoq school in Paris. I am hoping to be able to bring you a full set of screencaptures and clips fom this show sometime soon, so keep an eye out for that. Isla was her usual hilarious self, and it was good to see her on another big talk show, especially here in the UK!
Here’s a clip from the show which you will probably enjoy watching for its hilarity several times, and another one is further down this post…
To continue our Cannes coverage, another 60+ photos from yesterday’s day events have been added to our Gallery. This includes lots more from the photocall, and a handful more from the press conference. Isla looks gorgeous, and I love the photos of her chatting to Leo!
Isla and her Great Gatsby castmates and crew opened the illustrious Cannes Film Festival today! All the lead cast (minus Jason Clarke it seems) plus Baz, Catherine Martin and screenwriter Craig Pearce attended a photocall for the movie first thing, followed by a press conference, and then a (rain-soaked) red carpet premiere this evening. Isla looked fresh and feminine in a little white dress by Dolce & Gabbana paired with Roger Vivier heels for the daytime press, and changed into a dramatic strapless red gown by Oscar de la Renta with a Bulgari Heritage necklace for the premiere. Both fantastic looks from her, and it’s so exciting seeing her premiere a movie at the Cannes Film Festival – surely a great moment for her 😀
You can watch the official video footage from the photocall, press conference and premiere at the Cannes Film Festival website. Further down this post is an article about the opening day of the festival, and in our Gallery are the gorgeous first HQ photos from the days events – enjoy!
