theatrical emphasis on fashion and their love of cinema.

soon to appear in
Like Crazy out on February 2
see trailer below
A British college student (Felicity Jones) falls for an
American student (Anton Yelchin), only to be separated from him
when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa.
The movie won best film and she won best actress at last year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Like Crazy was shot on a very small budget in just 22 days.
At the Toronto International Film Festival (2011), the director Drake Doremus
said that much of the movie was improvised.
The script outlined what would happen, but Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin
improvised much of their dialogue.
Felicity also starred in Chalet Girl which was hilarious
Dolce and Gabbana LOVE Felicity -
They think the Oxbridge educated is an 'aristocratic sauvage girl'.
'She is naturally provocative' says Domenico Dolce.
'There's something assured and challenging about her gaze
which makes you realise that she doesn't care what anyone thinks'.
'She's got that high society girl attitude' Adds Stefano.
'You can see it n the way she holds her head, the way she looks at you.
It's all in the eyes."
"There's something very luscious and young about her face," says Pat McGrath,
Dolce and Gabbana creative advisor, who created the look for the Khol Collection.
"Using the Khol pencils to define Felicity's eyes really brought out this beautiful confidence in her expression. She looks at you with such knowing assurance.'
'I love how make-up can change the way you look and feel' says Felicity.
'As an actress, I consider it part of my professional tool kit -
I definitely use make-up to help me get into a role.
And in real life, I love its ability to transform me for special occasions.
Representing Dolce and Gabbana's Khol Collection was a real thrill.
Getting to work with such talented photographers as Mert and Mercus,
getting to wear such beautiful clothes,
having my make-up and hair done to perfection -
it doesn't get much better."
Dolce and Gabbanna wanted a Youthful Spirit, and irreverence
and an attitude of aristocratic wildness in the
