Imogen Poots Takes on Our Favourite Fall Looks

It’s a particularly muggy day in New York, but Imogen Poots doesn’t seem to mind as she embraces the thick knits, silk dresses, and wool suits pulled for the day’s shoot. After a quick fitting, it becomes apparent the British actress looks good in everything she tries on.

She is as much a chameleon in the fashion world—see her campaigns for Miu Miu, Chloe, and Marni for H&M—as she is in her own career, navigating seamlessly between sci-fi thrillers (28 Weeks Later and Fright Night) indie biopics (Greetings From Tim Buckley and Jimi: All Is by My Side), and romantic comedies, like this month’s She’s Funny That Way.

In the film, also starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, Poots portrays call girl–turned–Broadway star Isabella, who, after an encounter with a director, finds herself intertwined in a series of complicated relationships.

“She’s a dreamer,” the 26-year-old tell us about her character. As it turns out, the two are not all that different. “I’ll buy into the romance of something for sure. I can get swept away,” Poots says.

For our August fashion shoot, we played up the many sides of the It Brit—think 70s muse, Old Hollywood beauty, and 80s tomboy—through some our favourite transitional looks. Check it out below.
