Eva Green for InStyle UK Magazine

Posted on May 04, 2012

Eva Green does her best Charlotte Rampling/Marisa Berenson impersonation for InStyle UK. And we have to say, she’s looking pretty fabulous.


Eva Green featured in the June 2012 issue of InStyle UK magazine photographed by Rankin.

The lady was born to wear that gold and white combo.

Lorenzo’s always been a fan of hers but she never seems to land the right role for her. She was good in that one Bond film. See? We can’t even remember which one it was. But we couldn’t really take that cheesy looking Camelot series. Anyone going to see Dark Shadows? We’re not particularly knowledgeable about the original show but we were really taken aback by the purely comedic take of the film trailers. It wasn’t what we were expecting at all.

Casino Royale! That’s the one. We knew we’d remember it without having to go to IMDB.

    That’s not a great angle to shoot a face from.. Erm.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    I love her. Have you seen The Dreamers? She’s pretty great in it. And I saw a few episodes of Merlin and laughed myself silly. It’s totally ridiculous and she’s the only one who seems aware of it. It’s almost as if she were in a different show altogether.

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      Hah, she is. Merlin and Camelot are two totally different British TV shows about King Arthur.

      • Jecca2244

        i don’t think she is in Merlin. I’ve been watching it for the past few years. and I think they canceled Camelot.

        • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

          Yup, she’s in Camelot, not Merlin. And I think you’re right, that it was cancelled, but I didn’t watch it so I haven’t been paying too much attention.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Really? Well, I’m referring to the one she is in. The one with the terribly miscast Joseph Fiennes. Is Merlin any good?

        • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

          Merlin is also not very good, but it’s pretty entertaining, and actually has another very striking dark-haired, fair-skinned brunette with blue eyes. I gave up on it after 2 seasons, but it can be campy, ridiculous fun. I haven’t seen Camelot at all, so I can’t comment on it, but I suspect Merlin takes itself less seriously.

          • SassieCassy

            If were talking about mythical historical epic wannabes that blend together then Im warning anyone and everyone to stay away from The Borgias unless you are really into costuming.

        • Judy_S

          I saw the first episode of Camelot and most of the first season of Merlin. Merlin had an appealing lead and some nice ideas. It was generally more juvenile. Camelot seemed pretty clunky by comparison. It may have looked like a good idea to her on paper, though–Morgan as a strong female character. 

        • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

          I haven’t seen either but I love me some Joseph Feinnes.

    • SassieCassy

      I really liked Dreamers. Kinda weird but in a good way.

    • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.com/ Cassie

      Oh, I loved her in the Dreamers. Plus, young-and-sickeningly-beautiful Michael Pitt! 

      Anyway, I just love how old-school badass/Dark Lady fierce she is. I feel like she often looks and acts how we all kinda wish Angelina Jolie still did. 

  • moppet

    I know, Photoshop, happens everywhere all the time, bippity boppity boo, but wow, she looks particularly unreal in these pictures. Not her fault,but yikes.

  • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

    She was also pretty perfectly cast as Serafina Pekkala in The Golden Compass. That movie has plenty of flaws, but the casting is nigh-on impeccable.

    She’s so gorgeous. This isn’t the best angle on her face, but still: fabulous. She’s just always arresting.

    • SassieCassy

      Arresting is the perfect word for her!

    • Jo Miller

       I agree, she was perfectly cast as Serafina Pekkala in The Golden Compass. Every time I see her lately I immediately think of her as Serafina rather than Vesper from Casino Royale, or Isabelle from The Dreamers. I’m not thrilled with what I’ve seen of the trailer for Dark Shadows. Not her fault, for sure. She looks lovely here.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    I love this combo on her, especially since normally she is queen of the goths.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t think I’ve seen a single thing she’s been in.
    I can’t with Dark Shadows. I am old enough to remember watching it and can’t wrap my brain around this camped up version.  I have a feeling this is going to be creepy bad like the Depp/Burton Wonka remake was.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      Is it wrong for me to say Depp and Burton need to quit each other? Their work is almost caricature at this point.

      • MilaXX

        YES! It’s like they go out, get drunk and decide to make a movie together when it really just needs to stay a drunken pub fantasy.

      • http://littlebrotherlives.tumblr.com LBrotherL

        A lot of people feel this way, but their movies together do really well outside of the US. It’s like everyone’s latching on to the former prestige of their projects and forgetting the quality of the most recent ones.

    • formerlyAnon

      I can’t NOT watch Dark Shadows – I won’t pay full price. I may even wait until it’s on Netflix. But even thinking that the trailers are dreadful, (and if something creepy is grafted onto the lame humor of the trailers it will be even worse) I can’t kill my hope that by lowering my expectations it might be entertaining.  I really *wanted* to like it so badly.

      • MilaXX

         You can take one for the team and report back. Even once this makes it to basic cable I doubt I’ll be watching this.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      ‘Camped up version’ – ?? Because the original WASN’T campy? :-) There are episodes where the set was literally falling apart while they were filming and some of the actors regularly missed their lines – so much so that  people thought it was live even tho it wasn’t.

      • MilaXX

        Point taken. The difference is this is intentionally camping and the original wasn’t. I like Depp but when he does these weird affectations he bugs.

  • http://twitter.com/marared Jaime

    She’s ridiculously beautiful, but that’s too much eyeliner on her lower lids – throws things off a little.

    • Scarlet39

      I think it’s just too much shadow as well.  She looks overdone.

  • Stephanie Cook

    Surely you’ve seen ‘The Dreamers?’ It colored my view of her forever and you’re right, she has (since) not had the right role for her.

  • hughman

    Marisa Berenson was spot on as that gold sequined (?) whatever it is in the third pic down is very “see you at Studio, darling”. I would totally be digging an “Eyes of Laura Mars” editorial about now. 

  • Judy_S

    She’s a wonderfully beautiful woman but I think these clothes look kind of awkward on her. Not that she is awkward, they are. I guess that means she’s an actress, not a model?

  • Bill Curtis

    Dark Shadows was great in reruns when I was 10 or 12 in the 70’s.  Watching it now, I’m not so sure it would work. 

    The apparent campiness of the movie was a surprise to me, too.  But it has me interested.  The reverent remake they tried to do some years back didn’t work for me at all.

    Oh, and the lady.  She’s pretty.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Whoa.  She’s wearing the shit out of those clothes, but the eyebrows are not working for me.

  • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

    Love that you referenced two classic and spot-on style references, Rampling and Berenson!

  • girliecue

    I saw Casino Royale twice and swear I’ve never seen her before. Do not remember her at all, but I do remember the drool-worthy outfits her character wore. Her eyes are pure Charlotte Rampling. Are they related, by any chance?

  • Lina_bee

    Erm, she can have those eyebrows OR that eye makeup. Not both at once. Not sure why they chose the most dead-eyed shot for the cover pic, either. A lot of odd decisions here, but the last two shots are nicely done.

  • http://twitter.com/rmcgrudiva RL McGruder

    I’m crazy about that striped blouse. To DIE.

  • marilyn

    She is absolutely beautiful.  I wish the first dress was shorter, like above the knee.  It is fine at the top, but becomes a bedsheet at the skirt.  Where would one wear such a long nurses uniform?  Even that dress is great, except for the skirt length.  Everything else is superb!

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    i dont know much about this one but, though i do not believe she’s american, i think i would be glad to have her as our sweetheart. she looks great here [ie: lea michele could only dream about looking this good & this one does not even seem to be desperate].

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3JSTXMWWVZN2QNP2UEKJMTWD7U Isabel

    Original Dark Shadows – there was a murderous hand. The hand floated. There was no body attached to the hand. The hand had a huge ring. The hand would choke people. The hand would go back to a room. I think the hand lived in a velvet lined box.

    • Susan Crawford

      OMG, I had totally forgotten about The Hand! Used to watch Dark Shadows while babysitting my little cousin. She would sit next to me on the couch, under her “blankie”, peeking out through a hole. When the eerie, cheesy Barnabas Collins music would begin, she would shriek, “Cover up the hole! He’s gonna sucka my blood!” Happy days, happy days!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

        Omigod, totally forgot the hand! It was awesome and FREAKED me out.

  • SapphoPoet

    I loved her in Casino Royale, but haven’t seen her in anything else (I really covet the necklace she wore for most of the movie). She looks wonderful here. Very dramatic and arresting (as someone said earlier). 

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    I love her too. Always glad to see more of her.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/J2VE4NE2FY2BP4QD2XOYKJGLPI Laura

    I think she was miscast in Bond, but I think she’s perfectly cast for Dark Shadows, which I can’t wait to see. Can’t say that these pictures flatter too much…

  • http://littlebrotherlives.tumblr.com LBrotherL

    In that picture with her hand covering her face she looks like Emma Watson. Someone tell me I’m not crazy, please.

  • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

    She and an uncredited Ed Norton were the best things about Kingdom of Heaven

    • guest2visits

      Was that Norton ?! King of Jerusalem ?
      Yes, she was a very beautiful and enigmatic charactor in Kingdom of Heaven.

  • Amy Ellinger

    good pics, but they don’t do her justice.  How do you make one of the most beautiful, sensual women in the world, nay, universe(!) look awkward?

  • lifetime_student

    Jonathan Frid, the original Barnabas Collins, died last month. I think he saw the godawful trailer for what looks to be a godawful movie that has nothing to do with the original series except the name and died of shock. The television show had terrible production values, boom mics in shots and sets that looked like they were built from cardboard, but it took itself very seriously. 

    The original series is on Netflix streaming. The next time you have the flu or are snowed in and bored, watch a few episodes. You will laugh and roll your eyes a lot, but remember that the fan base of the show was preteen girls.

    That said, Eva Green is gorgeous.

  • granddelusion

    Yawn. She was so miscast in the Bond film.

  • kimmeister

    Her eyes are also reminding me of Gillian Anderson.

  • runningmollusk

    Those are some seriously sarcastic eyebrows. Or maybe it’s the makeup.

  • ccm800

    Egad! Not liking this spread AT all. 

  • Zippypie

    Serious bitchface.  She was good in “Casino Royale”.  “Dark Shadows” looks like it is a parody of the original – the trailer seems to have a very “Adaams Family” vibe to it, which turned me off completely.  And I’m so tired of the Johnny-Depp-playing-a-Tim-Burton-weirdo du jour flick. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

    Huge yawn. I’m more excited about seeing Beth Ditto’s name on the cover of the magazine. I wish Beth would get some face time here!

  • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

    There’s something very Annie Lennox-esque about her face in all these shots – something around the eyes, maybe. I haven’t seen much of her so I don’t know if that’s a normal thing for her.

  • snarkykitten

    whatever. I’m so over this photoshopped to hell shit

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GTG3A5BVL3JGIFT5M4MSPWYNCM Mathilde

    She’s gorgeous.

    You need to see her in Cracks. This film is strange but mesmerizing and she’s fabulous in it, as a teacher dreaming her life by telling lies to her students in an all-girl boarding school in 1920.
    She was also great in the Golden Compass but her role in Cracks is much more interesting, if not a bit disturbing sometimes.

  • LambeeBaby

    Her head appears misshapen in the 3rd photo, almost like Mr. Peanut.

  • http://www.aquatique.net/ Athena

    Agree, TLO about the right role. I liked her in Bond, Golden Compass, and she was the only reason I watched the horrible Camelot show (hours I will never get back). She is absolutely gorgeous and I wish better roles for her. Too much eyeliner here but this is a common problem with her, they always play up her arresting eyes to a crazy degree. Still, fabulous as always.

  • FayeKat

    I’m not a big fan of hers, but i did loved her in “Cracks””.
    She looks great in this editorial.

  • luciaphile

    Totally going to see Dark Shadows, but from what I hear it’s a totally different take on the original show (which I loved, but had its flaws). Love these photos of her. 

  • OneTwoThreeFashion

    Fab. Gotta love that white dress with the gold bling in the back!

  • frankystein123

    Nice profile, but there is too much hair swept to her right side.

  • sleah_in_norcal

    wow, she is one sultry sexy brunette here.  something about the brow makeup is off-putting to me.  are her brows really that close to her eyes (portrait artist speaking here)?  i’m not familiar with her.  i love a heavy brow when it looks somewhat natural, but here they seem oddly shaped or placed.

  • HobbitGirl

    Enh. She’s looking pretty 80s tackylicious here.

  • Dhammadina

    Maybe the reason you didn’t remember which Bond Eva Green was in right away is because it is the one where Daniel Craig rises from the sea like Venus on the half shell and who would remember anything beyond that?

  • Jessica Rowe

    I think she’s the most beautiful woman in the world.  But yeah, I loved Golden Compass but wasn’t sure about her in it.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Charlotte Rampling is the PERFECT reference.  Wow. 

  • EEKstl

    Gorge, as was her predecessors, Charlotte and Marissa.  As a fan (as in FANatic) of the original Dark Shadows (I would run home from school every day to make sure I was plopped in front of the TV at 4:30 pm), I was delighted when I heard Tim Burton was going to direct a film version, then aghast when the trailers make it look as if Burton had turned it into That 70’s Show.  I can go with the flow with the best of them, but don’t mess with my Dark Shadows.  Just sayin’…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

    Omigod, how did you boys NOT watch the original Dark Shadows? It was fabulous. I used to run home from school every day to watch it (in reruns – and this was back in the olden days when kids did something called ‘walk, or ride your bike, to school’). Then, when I was in college, they made an equally awesome redux of it that sadly only lasted one season. So yes, I’ll be watching the Johnny Depp version, but will probably wait till it comes to our funky second-run theater that serves wine and dessert.

  • Vodeeodoe

    I saw a screening of DS last week. It’s about as good as those trailers make it look. The only good thing about that film is that you get to stare at Eva Green a lot. She is absolutely a stunner. If you haven’t seen it, her first role was in The Dreamers about teen lovers of French cinema. If you can handle consensual incest, the movie is pretty interesting. And it also stars the kid from Hedwig and Boardwalk Empire.
