The August issue of InStyle features a stunning 8-page fashion story starring True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll. And while the statuesque, alabaster-skinned redhead makes the perfect model for designer Marc Jacobs’ acclaimed Fall 2010 collection—she poses in four very different, very dramatic dresses and a fur-trimmed tweed coat—the 25-year-old confessed on set that it was, in fact, her first-ever fashion shoot. “I’m very new to all this,” she admitted. “Growing up, I made some of my own clothes. I still have jeans that I was wearing five or six years ago. I’m not a fashion maven.” Maybe not, but she is gorgeous. See the rest of the pictures—and read fashion director Hal Rubenstein’s interview with Marc Jacobs—in the current InStyle, available on newstands now!
On Tuesday, the cast of True Blood gathered to celebrate their upcoming third-season premiere, and the ladies of Bon Temps—including Carrie Preston, Rutina Wesley, and Deborah Ann Woll—hit the red carpet in chic, fitted frocks with statement earrings to match. Their characters aren’t likely to look quite as festive anytime soon: “This year [my clothes have] gotten a bit plainer,” said Woll, who plays newbie vampire Jessica. “I wore my own jeans a number of times.” Preston, who plays barmaid Arlene, said that while her alter ego is seldom seen out of her Merlotte’s uniform, “she’ll accessorize the heck out of it. Many earrings, and a different fanny pack every day.” Wesley, who plays Tara, was unable to divulge much about her upcoming fashions (or plot-lines) but she did say that Tara’s “wardrobe will definitely be more fun.” Tune in to check out the looks—and, of course, the horror, the mystery, and the romance—this Sunday at 9PM EST on HBO.
