Rosamund Pike is the cover star of Town & Country’s December 2018/January 2019 issue – on newsstands now.
The self-described Hollywood chameleon tackles the life story of war correspondent Marie Colvin and exclusively for T&C (photographed for the cover by Liz Collins and styled by Nicoletta Santoro in Dior and Cartier), Colvin‘s fellow war correspondent Janine di Giovanni talks to Pike about A Private War (in theaters now).
Inside her T&C cover story, Pike, a former Bond girl who broke out in the U.S. in 2015 with an Oscar-nominated performance in Gone Girl, opens up about why she wanted to play Marie Colvin, her hope for audiences seeing the film, family life in London, and the surprise her second son’s early birth gave her.
On what she wanted to achieve by playing Marie Colvin: “I wanted to capture her spirit of rebellion. But I also had to dive into Curie’s bitterness.”
On her hope for audiences after seeing A Private War: “I want people to care about journalism again.”
On the surprise of her second son’s early birth: “There was no time for pain medication, no time to get to the clinic, so I just let my body take over. I thought, If I can let my mind go somewhere else, my body will do the job.”
On life with her family in London: “People might recognize me, but I think they just see me as a mother trying to handle small kids on the subway.” Image courtesy of Town & Country. (source)

The creepy cover is a peek from David Fincher’s latest project, Gone Girl (out later this year). He photographed the cover with two of the casts, Rosamund Pike (Amy Dunne) and the new Batman, Ben Affleck (Nick Dunne).
Gone Girl is an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 smash best-selling novel with the same name about the marriage of Nick and Amy, two out-of-work magazine writers whose marital bliss turns toxic after they leave New York City for the Midwest. When Amy vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick becomes the prime suspect in her murder. (source)
For the first five months, InStyle UK stick with grey mastheads. But thank God for the fabulous cover stars: Academy Award winning and nominated actresses Hilary Swank (January), Amy Adams (February) Gwyneth Paltrow (April) and Julianne Moore (May) and also supermodel Helena Christensen (March). Maybe muted colors are InStyle UK things, just like last year.
Their first non-grey masthead starts in June with Thandie Newton in the infamous Prada stripes dress. Another model who landed cover slot this year was Daisy Lowe who’s sitting gorgeously for July issue. The similar pose is also used for the current and the last cover of 2011 featuring Cheryl Cole in another Prada dress. As you can see, Thandie Newton and Daisy Lowe‘s covers are the only bright colored front pages in 2011.
X Factor US judge who ironically replaced fellow cover star Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger, looked serene on the soft colored August issue. Rise of The Planet of The Apes leading lady Freida Pinto graced the September cover in a lace dress from Emilio Pucci while the October (Diane Kruger in Dolce & Gabbana gold sequins dress) and November (Rosamund Pike in Versace white ostrich feather dress) issues are two of my favourite covers from InStyle UK this year.
