There is no denying the fact that Rosamund Pike's 'Beauty Close-Up' for W Magazine's May issue isn't a big deal. First off, it's not just one cover it's two and secondly the 35-year-old Brit actress talks her latest role in Gone Girl.The first cover sees Pike doing that whole natural glowy, undone look (read: nudes and immaculate contouring) in a Prada top and dress styled by Olivier Rizzo and photographed by Willy Vanderperre. And yes, she makes a turban look incredible.
On being cast by producer by David Fincher, Pike tells the magazine: "I do remember saying to David, 'I know you know I have this character in me; you zeroed in on me for good reason.' With David Fincher, it's like being X-rayed-he sees things that you may not want anyone to see.
"Now I have to prove him right-I have to show the world that I'm as dark as he thinks I am."
Pike's second cover for the mag's 'Beauty Issue' is all intrigue, mystique and drama. Think dark side, think sultry beauty shot by David Fincher. In a monochrome Valentino dress and Van Cleef & Arpels rings the look is all about the reveal and sees Pike with a slicked back updo removing her makeup. Smudgy much?
