Claire Foy featured in Vanity Fair’s 24th Annual Hollywood Issue

Claire Foy featured in Vanity Fair’s 24th Annual Hollywood Issue

By: James Wolcott

In the quarter-century since Vanity Fair launched the Hollywood Issue, show business has changed in fundamental ways, as have magazines. But a star-studded, foldout cover remains a surefire thrill. This year’s portfolio goes inside the cover’s creation, which took place in L.A. and New York as Annie Leibovitz photographed 12 of film and TV’s most iconic actors—with a non-actor corralled for the shoot for his last V.F. hurrah.

The films and TV shows represented by the actors in this year’s Hollywood Portfolio—which for the first time offers a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot—took the #MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them. Here we have Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman summoning the women’s battle cry of Big Little Lies alongside Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee, the indispensable sidekick to The Post heroine Katharine Graham. There’s also Claire Foy and Gal Gadot, embodiments of their formidable characters, the Queen and Wonder Woman, and one possible future female president in the mix. Movies have always thrived on relevance, and this year’s cover stars don’t hesitate to make a statement about the times we’re living in and the changes that need to happen.

CLAIRE FOY, actor.
7 films, including Unsane (2018); 16 television shows, including The Crown, Season Two (2017).

Quintessential Englishness is the viola Claire Foy plays, usually in period costume. Foy was outfitted with the poshy title of Lady Persephone Towyn in the remake of Upstairs, Downstairs (BBC), lost her head as Anne Boleyn on Wolf Hall (BBC), and was reconstituted for greatness as Queen Elizabeth II on The Crown (Netflix), contending with a moody husband, a lumbering Winston Churchill, a sprawling empire, and the deadweight of protocols and precedents—all while maintaining cameo-brooch composure. In royalty, as in theater, the show must go on.

Claire Foy Covers the November 2017 Issue of Vogue UK

By: Scarlett Conlon

SHE is set to steal the show alongside Andrew Garfield in the forthcoming Breathe (the cinematic adaptation of the love story of tireless campaigners Robin and Diana Cavendish), but before then Claire Foy – the toast of the British acting scene thanks to her Golden Globe-winning turn as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown – takes to the cover of the November issue of British Vogue.

Making her debut fronting the fashion bible, Foy is resplendent in a floor-sweeping Christian Siriano gown, hailing “the return of glamour”. Styled by senior contributing fashion editor Kate Phelan and photographed by Craig McDean, the 33-year-old is interviewed by Chloe Fox for the accompanying interview in which she sheds light on finding global recognition at the right time in her life: “If this had happened to me when I was 23, I probably would have spun into a vortex,” she reveals.

BFI & Radio Times TV Festival – Day 2

She is the actress who’s found her niche playing English queens on the small screen, acting as both Anne Boleyn and a young Queen Elizabeth II.

But Claire Foy went for a simple English rose look as she stepped out at the star-studded BFI & Radio Times TV Festival in London on Saturday.

The Crown actress sported a Spring-like colourful floral blouse which she tucked into a pair of black slacks.

She paired her simple outfit with comfortable Converse trainers.

The 32-year-old tucked her tresses into a neat short style and kept her make up minimal but slicked her lips with an eye-catching scarlet lip gloss.

Claire wore two pretty gold necklaces and a gem ring on her finger.

The actress was at the festival to take part in a panel discussion The Crown: The Making Of A TV Epic.

The lavish Netflix drama chronicles the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to the present day.

The first season of the ten part series focused on events leading up to 1955 with Claire Foy performing as the young Elizabeth alongside Matt Smith as Prince Philip.

Netflix has invested a staggering £100 million in the show which is currently intended to have six series.

The second season is expected to be released this November and it was recently revealed that the third season will introduce a well-known character: Camilla Parker Bowles.

The show’s creator Peter Morgan said that the royals have had a mixed reaction to The Crown.

They are both ‘very nervous and very excited’ he revealed at a press conference last year.

‘I think they don’t like not having control, but they also understand that [a drama] dealing with this subject with respect is a rare thing.

‘These are people who are not used to being taken seriously.’
