When: January 7
Where: Splashlight Studios, New York City
Polar vortex be damned. Imogen Poots braved the arctic temps in Chelsea boots to arrive right on time for our shoot. With heaters blasting, the Need for Speed and That Awkward Moment actress posed with playful insouciance for photographer Jason Kim, her unabashed goofiness the perfect complement to spring’s mixed-up prints. Imogen, a lover of quirk (Opening Ceremony and Miu Miu were two of her favourite labels on set), especially fancied the Alexander Wang slip-ons and bold, square-framed Karen Walker sunnies. In between looks, she snacked on roasted veggies with the crew and chatted with star hairstylist—and dear friend—Harry Josh about award-season films; she talked up Blue Jasmine and placed 12 Years a Slave and The Wolf of Wall Street on her need-to-see list. (Unexpectedly, she also confessed to a penchant for Mexican wrestling!) After the shoot wrapped, Imogen traded our pastel set for the warm sun of Los Angeles, where the pieces she modelled for FLARE were already weather-appropriate. Imogen, we can only imagine!
