Go Behind the Scenes of Our Shoot With Furious 7 Star Nathalie Emmanuel
Actress Nathalie Emmanuel was cool as a cucumber when she arrived at L.A.'s Milk Studios to shoot a fashion feature for our April issue, on newsstands now, but she said she's not always so collected on her film sets. "My first day of Furious 7 was overwhelming," says Emmanuel of meeting the mega-watt cast that includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, and the late Paul Walker. "I was a huge fan of all of them."
Emmanuel, best known as Missandei in Game of Thrones, is also a major fan of statement fashion. For our shoot, the actress had a blast posing in bold primary colors by Louis Vuitton and Lanvin, and even bolder sneakers by Chanel and Burberry Prorsum, among others.
To complement the strong fashion palette, makeup artist Darlene Jacobs created a rosy glow. "I used Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud ($25; lauramercier.com) to brighten her skin and RMS Beauty Living Luminizer ($38; rmsbeauty.com) on the top of her cheekbones to bring out her bone structure," says Jacobs.
And for those killer curls? Hairstylist Michael Long barely needed to do anything. Says Long, "When she walked in, her natural hair already looked amazing!RELATED: Get Nathalie Emmanuel's Lush Natural Curls From the Game of Thrones Premiere
