Whistles muse: Alicia Vikander


Alicia Vikander's trajectory from indie actress to Hollywood star has been meteoric. She won an oscar in March this year for her role as Eddie Redmayne's wife in The Danish Girl and graced her first (and we're sure not last) British Vogue cover in July (the August issue).

Later this year the 27 year old Swedish ballet dancer-turned-actress’ appears alongside Michael Fassbender in the film adaptation of M.L.Stedman’s moving novel The Light Between Oceans (the pair met on set). Adding to a resume which includes Ex Machina, The Fifth Estate, and next year, Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie.

The Nordic beauty has been commended again and again for the depth and bravery she brings to her performances. Alongside her talent on screen, Vikander’s sartorial choices have caught our eye - whether walking the red carpet in floor-sweeping couture, or arriving at LAX in trackpants and a sweatshirt. Timeless and effortlessly elegant, Vikander’s style meanders from ultra feminine - printed dresses and heeled sandals - to modern androgyny - culottes, shirts and loafers. Each look worthy of the best dressed lists where the Swede is set to become a longterm fixture.
