Once again, a stylist finally managed to do Amanda just right. Of course, when it’s Joe Zee doing the styling, it’s a pretty safe bet he’ll get it right, but we’re hoping two good editorials in a row means a trend for Miss Amanda.
Amanda Seyfried covers the August 2013 issue of ELLE magazine in a glass-jeweled silk lace top and brief from Dolce & Gabbana paired with tiered earrings from Lana Jewelry, a yellow gold and diamond cuff from Jennifer Meyer, a rose gold heart bracelet with diamond from Chopard, and a white gold double ring with black rhodium, quartz, and diamonds from Jack Vartanian, photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee.

On accepting the title role of Linda Lovelace in the upcoming feature film “Lovelace,” in theaters Aug. 9: “I read the script and I was like, ‘Wow, this is the riskiest thing that’s happening [in Hollywood] right now.’ The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, ‘This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.’”
On the need for physical attraction in a relationship:
“Everybody I’ve dated I’ve been sexually attracted to immediately. Sparks don’t grow- your vagina doesn’t become more inclined to wanting someone just because you’re around them.”
On her ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper:
“We love each other… He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.”
On her current crush:
“[He’s] someone separate from my industry life- I’ve known him since he was 16… I picture him as the father of my children all the time. But it is a fantasy right now.”

The trick with Amanda seems to be to stay away from wide-eyed princess looks and fully embrace the wide-eyed dirty/sexy looks for her. When she’s doing the fashion magazine version of keeping it real, she comes alive on the page. She needs super-declarative pieces, not pretty dresses.
