FASHION Magazine May 2013 Cover: Isla Fisher


Fashion Magazine May 2013 Isla Fisher

Photographed by Chris Nicholls and styled by Zeina Esmail, Isla Fisher wears a dress, price on request, by Burberry Prorsum and necklace, $1,095, by Shourouk. Hair by Adir Abergel for Fekkai. Makeup by Katey Denno for The Wall Group/Burt’s Bees. Manicure by Lisa Postma for Tracey Mattingly. Fashion Assistant, Amy March.

Weeks before Isla Fisher started to prep for the onslaught of worldwide premieres for her latest film, The Great Gatsby, the 37-year-old actress took time out to pose for FASHION’s May 2013 issue and chat with our features editor, Elio Iannacci.

Aside from talking about her upcoming film roles (she has four films slated for release this year), the mother of two and wife of funny man Sascha Baron Cohen talked about her heroes, her style choices and, of course, her thoughts on comedy.

Here are a few of the highlights from the upcoming May 2013 cover story:

On her two favorite red carpet dresses:
“I still love what I wore to the London premier of Wedding Crashers even though I wore it years ago. It was a Chanel pale pink strapless dress. I also love this midnight blue Herve Legere number I wore to the Golden Globes when my husband won for Borat.”

On working with family members:
“I recently wrote a script with my mom—a thriller—just for fun because I enjoy writing so much. It has involved a lot of gin and tonic, a lot of giggling, a lot of late night emailing back and forth. I highly recommend actually doing something creative with a family member. When you get to know someone creatively you get to know a whole other side to them. ”

On what she and her husband, Sascha Baron Cohen, find the most humorous:
“Subverting the truth is the funniest thing of all. We laugh about that all the time. It works best when you hit at something that is happening in the world and represent it in a surprising way. Lena Dunham is brilliant at it.”

On meeting her idol:
“Goldie Hawn is my hero, I just think she is incredibly funny and I love her in every movie. I can’t help it. I just think she is fabulous.. It wasn’t a conversation, it was on a dance floor and she was dancing next to me so I saddled up to her doing some moves pretending it was just a natural progression in my dance moves and I kind of shimmied my shoulders at her for a smile and then shimmied away.”
