Alicia Vikander’s Latest Look

Vikander, a Louis Vuitton ambassador, wore a dress by the fashion house for the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new movie. The peasant-style dress featured a plunging neckline, a black floral bodice, flowing metallic sleeves and a layered frilled skirt. Vikander’s hair was styled into a slicked back bun.

In The Light Between Oceans, Vikander stars opposite her real life boyfriend Michael Fassbender. The couple plays a married pair in the aftermath of World War 1, living off the coast of Western Australia where Fassbender’s character Tom works as a lighthouse keeper. Vikander plays his younger wife who is struggling to have a child, but who fortuitously ends up with a daughter when a baby girl washes up on a boat.

“I loved Tom, his moral compass, his strength. It’s a love story, but really a story about life. WWI was such a horrific war, though all wars are horrific,” Fassbender told Variety. “So we’re started with a place where war and death is coming with us. Isabel’s character is so full of life, future.

Fassbender added, “If there was one thing to take away from the film it is forgiveness.

Vikander, who had yet to win her Oscar for The Danish Girl when she was filming The Light Between Oceans, was thankful to have the support of a more veteran leading man in Fassbender for the film’s more emotional scenes.

Vikander explained, “Michael’s support in those scenes were a big part of me daring to go all the way, which was needed for the role of Isabel.”
