These Are the Fresh Faces You Need to Look for on Every Red Carpet
WHO: Angourie Rice
WHAT: Landing a role opposite Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Colin Farrell under the direction of Sofia Coppola would be a career milestone for any actress. And Rice is living the dream at just 16 years old as she plays the role of Jane in The Beguiled. Later this year, Rice will promote her next role, of Betty Brant in the anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming, but trust: You’ll want to see this Australian actress pour on the Southern charm (and chills) in Coppola’s Civil War–era thriller when it premieres June 23.
The biggest challenge in playing my role of Jane in The Beguiled is… “the Southern belle accent. I had to practice a lot to get the accent right. Funny enough, the hardest word for me to say was Jane. Also, eating lunch in a corset was quite challenging. All the girls would lie down for five minutes after lunch before starting work again.”
The best part about being one of the youngest cast members of The Beguiled is… “being able to see professional, talented people at work. I’ve loved Sofia’s work for a while, and I was so excited to get to work with her. The whole cast of The Beguiled was so much fun to work with—I couldn’t wait to get to set every day. The sense of community was really strong, and that made it a great shoot. I learned a new thing every day. Did you know that in Louisiana, people pin money to your clothes on your birthday?”
As far as my own sense of style, I describe it as… “mostly simple, sometimes a bit outrageous. For example, I own two T-shirts with a drawing of my dog printed on them.”
But if I ever had the hance to switch closets, I’d definitely pick… “Emma Watson’s closet. I really admire how she only wears sustainable fashion on the red carpet; I think it’s very important to keep our world clean.”
The three things currently sitting in my shopping cart waiting to be purchased are… “this chiffon pleated mid-length skirt from Uniqlo. I love swishy skirts, and this particular one is gorgeous. I also love the burgundy color.
“This checked open-back wrap dress from Ora Ethical Fashion. This brand works with a community of women in Jodhpur, Northern India, who handcraft the garments using ethically and sustainably sourced Indian fabrics. Aside from their amazing philosophy, their garments are gorgeous. The fabric is sensational, and I love how simple and clean this particular dress is.
“This black wrap jumpsuit from The Only. I love jumpsuits because you don’t have to worry about coordinating a top and a bottom.”
