Girl Crush: Alicia Vikander

Ever since we decided to move to Denmark, Simon and I have been reading and watching all things Scandinavian. We began with Oscar-nominated Danish film, A Royal Affair, starring Swedish beauty Alicia Vinkader. More recently, the formally trained ballerina turned actress starred in The Danish Girl and wowed fashion critics at The Golden Globes. I can’t wait to see what she’s up to next. If you’re curious about Scandinavian film/television, be sure to check out The Bridge and Borgen (two brilliant Danish series suggested by my readers, thank you!). Next in our queue is The Killing. Oh and I also absolutely loved the Danish film After the Wedding (Mads Mikkelsen is such a fox).

    Have you seen her in the Vogue original short “The Magic Diner”? Anna Wintour makes a short cameo. Overall the film is incredible; that was the first time I had even heard of Alicia! I also loved her look at the globes.

    I just watched Testament of Youth last night. Tragic and romantic, and she was so brilliant. Fierce, tough, but still completely in touch with her emotions. Something about her voice draws me in also.

    Jessie – I’m embarrassed to admit that it wasn’t until I was researching her this morning that I realized it was the same actress! I loved Testament of You as well…her English is so flawless, it never occurred to me as I was watching it that she was Swedish?!

    I just watched her in the man from uncle- a silly but fun movie with great costuming! She wears the most adorable 60’s italian shift dresses and earrings- totally worth watching.
