Lizzy Caplan for LA Confidential Magazine

Posted on August 22, 2014

Lizzy-Caplan-LA-Confidential-Magazine-September-Issue-Gucci-Bottega-Venetta-Donna-Karan-Editorials-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)“Masters of Sex” actress Lizzy Caplan covers the latest issue of LA Confidential magazine in Bottega Veneta photographed by Tony Duran.

On the sex scenes: “[They are] always funny. When it’s not funny, that’s the only time that it’s really scary… I frequently forget that it’s going to be on television, and when I remember that, I get a wave of anxiety.”

On having the job of her dreams: “I honestly cannot believe that I got the job I’ve been waiting for. It just makes no sense to me that I get to go to work on that show every day and play that woman.”

On being the underdog: “I’ve always felt like the underdog-partly because I’ve been told that I’m the underdog, pretty explicitly, on many occasions […] In retrospect, I’m so grateful it took as long as it did, because I’ve been able to slowly acclimate to these changes instead of an overnight success story.”

    Are we sure that’s her in the Gucci?

    The cover is mesmerizing!!

  • Dany

    She can MODEL. Holy crap, some of these shots look like an honest to god professional model. WERQ.

    • Thomas

      That’s what I was gonna say! Professional model status right here!

    • StrandedFashionista

      She transformed a rather shapeless Gucci dress into something amazing on the cover. If that’s not MODEL, I don’t know what is.

  • Fyolette

    The dress on the cover gives her a disturbing effect of a broken body, but otherwise I love the structural, graphic quality of the whole shoot and her striking bone structure compliments it effect perfectly. She is working the hell those shots and these clothes.

  • Danielle


    • dustinrhodes

      Let’s be honest: she LOOKS like a (VERY) hot lesbian.

      • Danielle

        I am absolutely okay with this.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Well played.

  • MilaXX

    I like the Donna Karan shot the best

  • Mr. J.

    Whoa, girl!!!!!

  • Noah

    That is some FACE! Get it, girl!

  • smayper

    I am madly in love with her and she looks better than the model in every shot. What an amazing face.

  • sienna elm

    That cover shot is spectacular!!! It really makes the dress look fantastic. Good thing the shot is in black and white because that drab colour is disappointing.

  • hughman

    These photos are giving some major Herb Ritts vibe. You may continue.

  • Imasewsure

    Ok ok she looks amazing but I had to look her up… ” I’m so grateful it took as long as it did, because I’ve been able to
    slowly acclimate to these changes instead of an overnight success
    story.” She’s 32…. actors… annoying (but yes she’s gorgeous, talented – and apparently well in to her dotage)…

    • FibonacciSequins

      She’s been acting for about 15 years.

      • holla

        yes, she was great in Mean Girls, and she was in Freaks and Geeks with some notables

  • GeoDiva

    The cover shot is amaze-balls! I’ve been a fan since Party Down.

  • gingerella

    The Gucci dress gives her such a tiny waist. Damn!

  • FibonacciSequins

    They made her look like Teri Hatcher on the cover. Darn it. Other than that one nitpick, I approve. She’s sexy as hell in these photos. I’m also coveting that dress on the cover, big time.

    • decormaven

      That dress is amazing, yes?

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      I thought the exact same thing. Re:Teri Hatcher! She is totally unrecognizable in these photos. Impressive modeling skillz!

  • B_C_J

    She is scorching hot in these photos & at the same time beyond chic. The sinuous lines created by the dress & her body in the cover shot are exquisite.

  • evave2

    The model in the Bottega Veneta looks so washed out, and the model in the Gucci has messy hair. Is the Donna Karan a coat or a dress (with a body suit underneath)?

    Lizzy Caplan looks so much better than all three models. Remember the days of the Runway Super Models (gosh I can’t remember their names, but there is one long video of a bunch of really famous models doing a runway at a car agency and every one of them was beautiful and the clothes were beautiful) when the models also looked beautiful? Now the models are so deconstructed too it just bugs the daylights out of me.

  • DaveinAlamitosBeach

    The cover shot improves the dress in every way. It’s better in black and white and looking floor length, plus the posing helps. I can hardly believe she’s the same person I just saw in Mean Girls last week.


    That cover shot. That dress in the cover shot. So cool, and so freaking gorgeous.

    • Valdri8

      so perfect for her little weensy waist

  • frannyprof

    That Gucci is all kinds of right. And love the soundbites.

  • marlie

    These are fantastic short. I love the cover.

  • Shelby


  • NurseEllen

    I am getting a lot of “Veruschka in the ’60s” vibe from these photos, especially the Donna Karan shot. She is eyestopping!

  • Amelia Ross

    “sexy in the city” is a truly dumb headline

  • TigerLaverada

    Wow. She’s the best model I’ve seen in a while, and she’s not a model. Gorgeous.

  • RoseJB


  • EEKstl

    OBSESSED with that BV dress. Obsessed.

  • demidaemon

    Not really feeling it.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      I get that her show is about sex, but it seems rather unimaginative to have her do all this orgasmic posing.

      • demidaemon

        That’s what I thought, as well.

  • Clash D

    Love the attitude in the shots. The third photo is really good imo.

  • OffToSeeHim

    Her head seems to look so weirdly big in that second shot.

  • ktr33

    I have no where to wear those thigh-high boots but I want them anyway. And actually, with matte black tights, they might work in real-life.

  • judybrowni

    I have a girl crush on her.

  • sundaynightaddict

    Nina wants her shirt back. But seriously, this is all gorgeous. For some reason I feel personally invested in her success, so I’m really happy for her.

  • PeaceBang

    Well, I’ve been meaning to watch that show. Now I’ll definitely DVR it. She looks like a zinger. She is killing the Gucci!! Showing the model how. it. is. done! The Donna Karan runway look is loads of fun. Dominatrix with fascinator is SO my thing right now.

  • kim bunchalastnames

    she’s kind of killing it, here. in every. single. shot.

  • litbrit

    Absolutely stunning. Brava, Lizzy! She makes the clothes look much better than they actually are. That teeny-tiny waist doesn’t hurt (lucky girl).

  • suzq

    Wow. She looks completely different in all three pictures. Make-up really transforms her.

  • Frank Lithium

    The Gucci one: DAMN gurl.
