On a hot summer day, nevermind London’s annoyingly bad Wi-Fi connection, a chat with Jenna Coleman for our August Cover Story was the best company and distraction from a series of threats of fainting due to my low blood pressure and Milan’s boiling air temperatures. When we Zoomed, she wanted to know where I was calling her from, she wanted to know how my colleagues were doing, she was curious about me and about us. At that point, when Jenna showed genuine interest in the scraped white wall and green leaves on my background, and revealed a glimpse of her living room in her house, her happy place, I realized she is one of the most down-to-earth entertainment industry people I’ve talked to, so far. Perhaps, one of the most down-to-earth women I’ve talked to, as well.
One of my favorite parts of our chat was when we discussed perfection, the need to be perfect at all costs, to live up imaginary standards superimposed by our society which make us weak in our inability to be “unapologetically ourselves”. Like her character in the latest project she’s starred in, the TV series “Wilderness” where she plays a control-freak, vindictive wife living in a constantly heightened reality, where she needs to be the perfect female counterpart to her dominating male partner. Or at least she thought she needed to. When Jenna wondered out loud, “What even is perfection?”, and I found I couldn’t answer to that question and, at the same time, I didn’t care to know, I realized that maybe things are really changing, like she said, especially for women and women in cinema. Starting from me, starting from her and the new generation of actors and young people in general whom we both look up to.
Because the thing is we only are truly brave and bold when we show ourselves in all our complexities, and that’s a fact now.
What’s your first cinema memory?
My first cinema memory is “My Girl” with Macaulay Culkin: that was the very first film that made me feel overwhelmed by emotions while watching, it had that kind of power. Some other memories are related to what we would watch in my house, like “West Side Story”, “Oliver”, “Black Beauty”; I remember we would watch lots of musicals, actually. Also, “Back to the Future” and “Never Ending Story”, I think I watched that film 50 times or something like that! [laughs]
Liv decides that revenge is her only option, and after Will proposes a trip around the National Parks to give their relationship a fresh start, she decides upon a plan through which she can get it.

Additional cast members for the series include Claire Rushbrook, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Morgana Van Peebles and Jonathan Keltz, while a release date has yet to be announced.
The Chanel Couture show FROW star and actor spoke exclusively to ELLE about her relationship with Chanel, finding her style, and her new series, Wilderness.
With the Eiffel Tower providing a postcard-perfect backdrop, models made their way along the cobbled quayside of the Seine in Parisienne-inspired frothy organza dresses, tweed co-ords and intricately floral-embroidered separates – and all the while, a glamorous gaggle of the maison’s muses packed the FROW. Among them, British actor Jenna Coleman, who stood out as a vision in baby pink.
Jenna has blessed us with an Event attending Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2023/2024, looking flawless as always! High-quality photos have been added into our gallery, enjoy!
The French luxury house hosted a gala at the British Museum to celebrate the release of its high jewelery collection ‘Tweed de Chanel’
When we think about Chanel, we almost immediately think: tweed. It became the house’s ultimate symbol of chic when Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel created her first jacket in 1925. Now the French luxury label has taken the Scottish style from its clothing to its accessories, with the unveiling of its second ‘Tweed de Chanel’ high jewellery collection.
To celebrate the release, Patrice Leguéreau, Director of the Chanel Fine Jewellery Creation Studio, hosted a star-studded dinner in London where the guest list was a glam as the bijouterie on display.
Jenna Coleman opted for dopamine dressing glam in a diamante jacket with colourful argyle patterned sleeves and a soft pink bodice. Chanel fine jewellery completed her look.
Lucy Boynton, Emily Beecham, Honor Swinton, Amita Suman, Shalom Brunce-Franklin, Clare Rugaard and principal ballerina Francesca Hayward were also in attendance.
