For the magazine’s May issue, they’re introducing some of the biggest and brightest new stars in Hollywood! From Elle Fanning to Elizabeth Olsen, we couldn’t think of a better bunch!
Breakout stars Lupita Nyong’o, Emilia Clarke, Kate Mara, Elle Fanning, and Elizabeth Olsen each landed their very own cover for Marie Claire‘s May ‘Fresh Faces’ issue — but it’s Oscar-winner Lupita and Game of Thrones star Emilia who totally stole the show in our opinion! Both gals look so glam, as they talk about what’s coming up next in their careers and their personal lives.
Lupita Nyong’o’s ‘Marie Claire’ Cover — Fresh Faces Issue:
Lupita has had the best year ever! Not only did she quickly become one to watch on the red carpet, solidifying her place as a fashion icon, but the 31-year-old Yale grad won her first Oscar! Lupita opened up to the mag about her great year and what her future will bring. Wearing a bold pink Christopher Kane dress on her cover, the stunning actress showed off her best accessory — her killer smile! “As brilliant as it was,onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon. In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year — that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something.”
While Lupita seemed to relish dressing up and going to all the major award shows, she said waiting to hear them read out your category when you’re nominated is a very unique experience. “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital,” she says.
Emilia Clarke’s ‘Marie Claire’ Cover:
Emilia hit it big when she landed the role of Daenerys “Dany” Targaryen on HBO’s mega-hit series, Game of Thrones, straight out of drama school. The Emmy-nominated actress has been able to fly under the radar thanks to her naturally long brown hair that she trades in for blonde locks on the show — but now the stunning 27-year-old is opening up about her hopes and dreams for the future.
“Personally, I’d like as many children as I can pop out, I reckon. You come from a happy family; you want to create a happy family. And in the same breath, I’d like to be on stage at England’s National Theatre, doing Miller and Chekhov,” she says. “Give me a Sam Mendes/Tennessee Williams combination – that would be glorious. And to be making some Oscar-worthy movies with Scorsese. I’m always looking for the hard road. That way, you remain interested and interesting. Hopefully.”
The British actress looks stunning on the cover, leaving her long brown hair down in waves in an effortlessly gorgeous style. Emilia also has mastered one of the biggest trends of the year — thick eyebrows! Her makeup was also kept simple for the over, making sure to highlight her gorgeous blue eyes.
