New photoshoot! And a truly amazing one! Rose featured in a Violet Grey interview with a brand new photoshoot shot by Naj Jamaï, styled by Penny Lovell, makeup by Kate Lee. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking!
Do you remember the first time you saw Rose Byrne? Perhaps it was on Damages, where she appeared on screen, equal parts magnetic and fragile, opposite the great Glenn Close. Or perhaps it was in Bridesmaids, where her character Helen ran circles around Kristin Wiig’s Annie in the great competition that is the contemporary wedding party. Byrne, who moved to the U.S. from her native Sydney, Australia over 15 years ago, is memorable for her doll-like beauty, with her wide eyes and tiny nose. But she’s also wickedly funny, full of zingers and withering glares, an accomplished “straight man” who can hold her own with Melissa McCarthy and then run off with your heart.
Over the years, Byrne’s evolved into an actress to watch both on and off the screen. She’s a style icon for chic smart girls, as comfortable in glittering Chanel as she is in sleek Calvin Klein. Her look is youthful but still tasteful, proper but not prim. “There is something very classical in her beauty but then there is also something very unique to her and the proportions of her face,” says makeup artist Kate Lee, creative director for this month’s Beauty Test and frequent collaborator with the actress. “A little bit like Jean Shrimpton. She’s incredibly easy to imagine transitioning genres and decades. I think her beauty is truly very versatile.”
