With her new movie “Lawless” set to hit theaters on August 29th, Mia Wasikowska added to her press efforts by partaking in a feature for the September 2012 issue of British Vogue.
The 22-year-old Australian actress donned designer garb from top names including Salvatore Ferragamo, Paul Smith, Marc Jacobs, McQ Alexander McQueen for the elegant Bruce Weber shot magazine spread.
On missing an active house when staying in hotels for filming: “Back in Canberra our house is very chaotic. My younger brother is there while he’s studying, and my dad and my sister, her boyfriend and her baby, so there’s always someone somewhere. I really miss that hive of activity when I’m living in a hotel room. And I have the outdoors here, which I love. The garden back home is like a fantastical reality.”
On her ‘surreal’ life: “I never get noticed in any significant way. I never feel like a movie star. I feel like I have a constant series of surreal moments, where I’m thinking, ‘Oh wow. This is so strange for me that this is my life.’ Which is great.”
On the power of clothing: “It’s not that I don’t care about fashion. I just have a more casual style. I care about it in the sense that good fashion is like any other creative art form. When it’s good, it’s super-inspiring. I’m pretty low-key but when it comes to things like Rodarte and Comme and Miu Miu, I really appreciate and respect it.”
On her own taste of fashion: “I prefer an older style. As in vintage, not the style of the elderly. I don’t mean support tights!”
