Actresses keep showing up in campaigns so it is about time that catwalkers took over the silver screen. Some of summer’s biggest films feature appearances by familiar fashion favorites – Erin Wasson, Brooklyn Decker, Lily Cole & Liberty Ross all show up in this summer’s mega-movies, but which will you actually watch? Click to vote on Facebook.
ERIN WASSON – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
The vampy Ms. Wasson plays what else, a vampire seductress in Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel. Judging from the red band trailer this is going to be an over the top gore-fest filled with special effects and historical inaccuracies. As a fashionable renaissance woman, Erin has done everything from styling to designing jewelry over the years, but this is her first real acting gig. Unless you count her cameo in Sofia Coppola’s film, Somewhere.
BROOKLYN DECKER – Battleship & What to Expect When You’re Expecting
Over the past year Brooklyn has successfully transformed herself from America’s favorite blonde modeling bombshell, into a promising actress. She shows up in two films this summer – Board game explosion-fest, Battleship and pregnancy ensemble comedy, What to Expect. Considering that we’ve already made our Channing Tatum based film selection for the year (Magic Mike, TYVM) we choose to watch Brooklyn’s talents in the latter movie.
Sure it is Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron‘s show, but the beautiful Liberty Ross and Lily Cole play pivotal roles in the upcoming, epic re-imagining of the fairy tale. Liberty plays the mother of the titular character, while Lily gets her soul extracted by the demonic-queen. Of all the non-Avengers popcorn flicks out this year this is probably the one we’re most excited for. Bonus bit of trivia – did you know the film was directed by Liberty’s hubby, the talented Rupert Sanders. Take a look at her behind the scenes diary of the process leading up to the films & behind the scenes of the premiere.
