Anyone who follows Smells Like Fashion on facebook and instagram must have noticed the Campari craziness over the last few days. In case you didn’t know, well, I was honored to be the social media ambassador of the iconic brand in order to communicate the launch of the Campari Calendar, representing Greece. Among my duties was to attend a fantastic event in London and meet Eva Green, the face of the newest Calendar. And since so many things happened on Tuesday and Wednesday, I decided to share my Campari Story step by step; I am still so overwhelmed by everything I experienced over these 2 days that I don’t even know where to start from. Or maybe I do: my meeting with Eva Green.

Eva could be an ancient Greek in terms of beauty and magnificence; her role as Artemisia in the movie “300: Rise of an Empire” suits her well. Tall, elegant and aristocratic, she is exactly the type of woman I want to become one day – a perfect match with the idea of the Campari Woman described here. However, she is extremely shy; not exactly what you expect from a celebrity. Maybe that’s because Eva is not really a celebrity, she is an artist instead. She avoids scandals and she is mainly focused on her job. From my point of view, Eva Green doesn’t seem interested in becoming the talk of the town because of her love affairs or even her style; on the contrary, she wants to earn your respect based on her work. Besides, every person who collaborated with her for the creation of the Campari Calendar mentioned that “she was not a trouble maker, but a true professional instead“.

Alexia: The new Campari Calendar, entitled “Mythology Mixology”, is celebrating Campari’s unique and colorful history. If you had the opportunity to go back in time, which decade would you like to live in? You seem like a 20′s girl!

Eva: Oh yes, 20′s were great. 30′s and 40′s as well! Of course, each era has positive and negative aspects, for example the War back then was terrible. But in terms of fashion, it was better during these decades. These days, fashion is not as good.

A: Speaking of fashion, if you had the chance to keep just one of the dresses worn at the Campari Calendar, which would you choose?

E: The Alaia dress (August, cocktail Old Pal). It was my favorite.

Moreover, Eva admitted that the backstage of the photoshooting, which took place in Budapest, was her favorite moment of the whole Campari experience. It’s important for her to feel like home, she doesn’t really enjoy being the “puppet” of the photographer and wants to have a say in her pictures. The actress also mentioned that she dislikes being photographed as herself; instead, she enjoys playing roles during the photoshootings, so the Campari Calendar was the perfect deal for her. When asked about social media, she mentioned that she tries to avoid them because she doesn’t really enjoy seeing people obsessed with their smartphones and technology. Fair enough, right? As for her goals and future plans, she is already collaborating with Tim Burton for a new film, while she continues the second season of the TV series Penny Dreadful – she doesn’t know what the future may hold, but certainly wants to try new things, avoiding getting stuck into the “box of femme fatale”.

All in all, I believe Eva Green was the ideal choice for the 2015 Calendar of Campari. Her beauty is timeless, exactly like the brand itself. Eva seems like a true professional and is quite different from what we are used to, when thinking of celebrities. I truly hope she remains down to earth and I cannot wait for her new movies and series. Eva, in case you’re reading this, you made my Campari Story even better!

Eva Green immerses herself so deeply into her characters that she forgets she’s naked when she has to shoot a nude scene.

Eva Green ”forgets” she is naked when shooting nude scenes.

The 34-year-old actress has appeared in a number of racy scenes in her films such as ‘The Dreamers’ and though she admits she isn’t usually comfortable baring all, she immerses herself so deeply into the characters she is playing, she doesn’t feel awkward stripping on camera.

She said: ”It’s kind of weird I get so much into the character and so passionate that I forget…

”If you’re talking about a nude scene I get numb in some way, I forget that I’m naked and I do not like being naked.”

However, the ‘Penny Dreadful’ star – who stars in the 2015 iconic Campari calendar, which is titled ‘Mythology Mixology‘ – insists she wouldn’t strip if she didn’t feel it necessary for the role.

She added: ”I never do them if they’re gratuitous.”

Eva admits she has a ”weird” job because she has never always been confident speaking in front of other people.

Speaking at the launch of the Campari calendar, she said: ”It’s a weird job when I was at school I would never speak in front of people and here I am now. I always get nervous. I’m a tiny bit more confident now maybe.”

French actress is Campari’s scarlet woman across the ages for Mythology Mixology calendar

French actress Eva Green is Campari’s 2015 calendar girl, joining an illustrious list of former models including Uma Thurman, Penelope Cruz and Eva Mendes.
 
Titled Mythology Mixology, the 2015 edition celebrates Campari’s fabled history and the invention of some of its most popular cocktails, from the classic Negroni, created by Count Negroni himself in 1919, to the modern Campari Orange Passion, an update of the classic Campari Orange, with Green bringing to life a different story for every month.
 
God knows why they chose me!” jokes Green on her casting. “I was very flattered. I guess it is because people like labelling me as a dark femme fatale. What I liked here though is that every month was a different character. I got to play lots of characters without doing any homework, no learning lines, no research.”
 
Shot by Julia Fullerton-Batten, 2015 marks the first in its 16-year run that the calendar has been shot by a woman – although Green herself is swift to point out that Julia’s gender has nothing to do with the quality of her work.
 
“To me, at the end of the day, woman or man, all that matters is if the person is talented,” she observes astutely. “And Julia is!”

Green herself was also extremely involved in the creative process, bringing her own team of stylists and make-up artists with her for the project.
 
“It was very important to me to not be treated like a model or a puppet – it was a real collaboration between my team and Campari,” she explains.  “We had such an amazing team – it was a real joy to be on set.”
 
Although not strictly a fashion calendar per say, fashion does play a role, with the 34-year-old sizzling in Vivienne Westwood, Versace and Alaia, not to mention numerous custom-made gowns. So is Green interested in fashion herself?
 
“I love Rick Owens, big time,” she says. “And Elie Saab… those dresses are just so magical. I heard also that John Galliano is going to work again, with Margiela, so I wish him luck with that one.”
 
The fact that the calendar is not for sale, but instead distributed to 9,999 friends of Campari, heightens its artistic value, something with Green is quick to mention. “I’m having the June Sputnik shot framed for my living room, it’s my favourite,” she says. “I loved the boyishness of the astronaut’s suit, especially in contrast to some of the girlishness of the other months.”
 
And is she allowed any for her family? “It’s quite funny because my mum has always been a big fan of Campari and would often have a Negroni in the afternoon,” she says, “So I’ve asked for a calendar for her.”

Jada Pinkett Smith thinks TV is the place to be for women right now and praises Claire Danes and Eva Green for their work on the small screen.

Women are beautifully complex, and on TV we have the time to peel back those many layers of a woman that defines her. And so we have all these fantastic characters, like Claire Danes in Homeland and Eva Green as Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful – she’s probably my favourite character on TV right now,” she praised.

It’s hard not to fall in love with Eva Green—even when she’s just a voice on the phone.

“I’m in Ireland at the moment,” she purred sounding every inch the femme fatale she often plays on the silver screen. “We just started about a week ago and then I’m going to go straight over to a Tim Burton film.” The busy actress also managed to find time to pose in the 2015 Campari calendar wearing a fantasy wardrobe that included Vivienne Westwood, Diane von Furstenberg,Christian Louboutin, and Versace.

Somewhere between the glamorous photo shoots and prepping for her various roles, Green managed to find time to talk to us about where she likes to wander in Paris, how she keeps her skin glowing, and what her new role in the latest Tim Burton movie entails.

 

You’re one of our favorite brunettes! What’s your secret to keeping your hair healthy and shiny? It’s always so beautiful.

My scalp is actually becoming quite sensitive. I just discovered that brand Moogoo, it’s for very sensitive scalp. It’s kind of organic, very simple. It’s nice.

Otherwise Shu Uemura do amazing shampoos. They do an oil as well that can be put on your hair for 24 hours. It kind of feeds—nourishes—your hair. It makes it very shiny. It’s very good!

 

And what about your skin? You’re always glowing. How do you wash your face?

It’s nice to change [products]. I’ve discovered recently discovered SkinCeuticals. It’s made miracles on my face, I have to say. They have some great antioxidant products and [the results] are immediate. It’s a very amazing brand.

Otherwise, I like Jurlique. La Prairie is very good as well. Sisley too. It’s nice to change. And also [these are] all very normal products that you would buy at the pharmacy.

 

Your trademark is the smoky eye. You always hit the red carpet with it. Are there any new makeup trends that you are excited to try?

I don’t know if I’ll be brave enough to go with very plain makeup on the red carpet because it’s kind of an anomaly for me. I like smoky eyes, but also the lips done because in real life I’m very boring and don’t usually have any makeup, so, for me, it’s the best opportunity to wear makeup! I love makeup on the red carpet.

Campari Calendar 2015 Launch (London) – November 5, 2014

By George Driver

 

We caught up with our fav Bond girl, and Sin City siren, Eva Green to chat all things Casino Royale, loving Cate Blanchett and why she’ll never get Facebook.

 

She’s the smoulderingly sexy French actress we wish we could call our own, the coolest Bond girl since Pussy Galore appeared on our screens and a secret Catherine Tate obsessive. We caught up with actress Eva Green as she follows in the footsteps of Uma Thurman and Penelope Cruz as Campari’s latest calendar girl. 

 

InStyle: You’ve played a Bond girl, three witches, an Arabian princess… what would your dream role be?

Eva: I’d love to do something with Mike Leigh, something quite raw. People have a tendency of putting me in the box of the femme fatale so I’m quite sick of that. I’ve played other roles but it seems that’s what people see me as, just hair and makeup and I wish people would see beyond that.

 

InStyle: Do you do funny?

Eva: Well, I was obsessed with Catherine Tate for a while… I’d love to do a comedy but it’s quite difficult to find a great one. I’d love to do a dark comedy, I like a dark sense of humour. I’d love to find the right one and be brave enough to do it.

Eva Green interviewed her famous mom for Paris Match. Eva says that Joy was the one who insisted that Marlène wrote her biography and that she didn’t know that her mom had such a difficult childhood. Ms Green was also surprised to read about her mom’s former boyfriends, the ones that she dated before she met Walter Green in 1976, and to know about Jobert’s career in details. She says that she’d like to be lighter and funnier like her mom and Marlène says that her daughter is funnier than she gives herself credit for and that she should be able to use that side of hers in Tim Burton’s next film.

Eva Green

Her magnetic allure is the key to her inscrutable sensuality. She’s gorgeous, fragile, and utterly irresistible

 

You needed a really special woman to irremediably break James Bond’s heart: an inscrutable woman able to convey contrasting sentiments such as fragility, determination, fear, sensuality, desperation and mystery with just a glance. That would be Eva Green, the actress who played Vesper Lynd, the great love of Daniel Craig’s 007. Hers is not a stage name, but she followed in the footsteps of her mother, the French actress Marlène  Jobert. “In the beginning, my mother kept telling me not to choose this career because it is a cruel world and I’m very fragile. Perhaps I was also afraid of being compared to her, not only in terms of a mother-daughter relationship, but also on a professional level.” When you meet Eva for the first time, you are struck by her beauty and by her magnetic allure, those slightly guarded smoky eyes, dusky voice, and disarming shyness. “I know I’m vulnerable, extremely shy and insecure.

 I feel I can only truly express myself when I’m acting.” Discovered by Bernardo Bertolucci, who launched her in the film The Dreamers in 2003, Eva became internationally famous with Casino Royale. It was, in a certain sense, an opportunity that turned out to be a mixed blessing. It made her one of the most famous and unforgettable Bond girls, but it also transformed her, despite herself, into the femme fatale archetype that every director wants. That is why she is twice as happy today to be the heroine of the action fantasy flick 300 – Rise of an Empire. In it, she is Artemisia, the warrior queen thirsting for revenge. It is a very virile and physical role. “I like having to handle a sword and fight like a man.

What girl wouldn’t be happy to be a man for at least one day?” But that was just an interlude because Eva has gone back to being the dark, sensual, and enigmatic actress that we were accustomed to seeing on the screen. Whether it is on TV, with the series Penny Dreadful where she is Vanessa Ives, an unsettling girl from a good family possessed by evil spirits in Victorian London, or in the movies as Ava Lord, “the dame to kill for” in the next Sin City, Eva is quite the irresistible femme fatale.

The actor felt fortunate to have so many electric scenes with Eva Green in Season One

You’re working a lot with one of the most interesting actresses out there in my opinion, Eva Green, and your scenes with her are very electric. Tell me about the experience of working specifically with Eva, because there’s something special going on on-screen between the two of you.

That’s great to hear. She is so hardworking, and I don’t know how she does it, really, because she’s in so much of the show, and the language is beautifully dense. She’s always on it. It’s a joy to work with everyone on the show. I mean, I really enjoy working with everyone equally, but it’s great to hear that about the scenes with Eva. I do really enjoy working with her. The first time I ever saw her on screen was in “Casino Royale,” and she definitely stands out in that film, and she stands out in everything she does.
