Rachel Weisz graces the cover of Lucky magazine’s October 2011 issue wearing an Edith A Miller top, an Elizabeth & James skirt, and a Marni necklace. Inside, she discusses how shoes help define a character, high heels, and Alexander McQueen.
On how shoes help define the characters she has played: “Shoes can turn you into someone else in an instant. I did a film called The Brothers Bloom, and I wore really clunky boots–and I was this eccentric weirdo. And then in The Whistleblower, I wore police boots that made me walk tough.”
On heels: “Sometimes it’s fun wearing very high heels and feeling needy…needy is great because you feel you need to rely on someone.”
On Alexander McQueen’s designs: “His pieces are works of art, but he had such a bizarre relationship to his own body…he was always on diets and…well, my perception is that his clothes were almost like torture instruments.”
