Featured Article: Jessica Chastain for Town & Country December 2017


Jessica Chastain wears Ralph Lauren Collection dress and Tiffany & Co. bracelet and rings on the December 2017/Januari 2018 cover of Town & Country magazine photographed by Matthew Brookes with styling by Nicoletta Santoro. Hair and makeup by Didier Malige and Fulvia Farolfi, nails by Gina Viviano.

On why she does not choose traditional female acting roles: “I am not one to go for traditional female roles, because I don’t think traditionally female characters are very interesting, and I don’t think they represent real life. I’m working hard to break free of stereotypes that the film industry has created and nurtured around women.”

On equal pay and what she will no longer accept: “If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less. It’s not really part of my world anymore, because I just won’t accept it.”

On her mission to inspire young girls: “I believe that the energy you put into the world is what you get back, so I’m trying to put something positive out there, something to inspire girls and go into science, to run for office, to try to join the space program.”

On how she approaches political resistance: “I am happy to stand alongside and march for any minority to have equal rights. But I’m not into anything that incites violence, that magnifies hate, because it becomes contagious. …I try to approach my political resistance and my life with hope and love.”

On becoming the face of the new Ralph Lauren fragrance, Woman: “I’m interested in celebrating women in all of their complexities—truly authentic, self-realized women. Ralph and I both believe in the importance of empowering women, and this campaign embraces the blurred lines of gender and crushing stereotypes.” (source)

Featured Article: Claire Foy for Town & Country October 2017


The Crown star Claire Foy wears Bottega Veneta dress and Van Cleef & Arpels ear clips on the October cover of Town & Country photographed by Matthew Brookes with styling by Nicoletta Santoro.

On playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown and the idea of Her Majesty watching the show: “I would hate the idea of her watching it. When you’re playing a real person, you never want to be ghoulish. I don’t want to pick apart a person. I want to invent someone. So I would hate for her to watch it and think I overdramatized anything.”

On her rise to fame: “I’ve never been a particularly ambitious actor. I was eager to do great things, but I never was like, ‘What I have to do is become massive.’ I just thought, maybe I’ll do a job here and there, and that I’ll be nice and I’ll move on to a different stage of my life.”

On her experience at the Golden Globes: “The Golden Globes were really weird—absolutely amazing, but strange, because suddenly, without me knowing, while I’ve been busy working, people felt like I belonged in that room. And I’d be like, ‘No, you don’t understand. I haven’t changed, it’s still just me.’ There was definitely a moment after the awards where I needed to be alone in a dark room to try to understand what’s happening. I never got that moment. I got a martini and cracked on.”

On her upcoming departure from The Crown (the show plans to change its cast every two seasons to depict the royal family at different points in time): “I’m in massive denial. I don’t feel like it’s over. I’m waiting for it to hit me at some point that this stage of my life is finished, but it hasn’t happened yet.” (source)
