Our latest celeb obsession at OMG Rags comes in the form of rising star, Alicia Vikander. The Swedish born beauty displays elegance and glamour on-screen as well as on the red carpet. Before starting her acting career, Alicia studied ballet for nine years at the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm. In 2010, ballerina turned actress, Alicia made her on-screen debut as Katarina in the Swedish drama, ‘Pure’. Since then she has become one to watch, with her talent not going unrecognised, she has been awarded for numerous roles and also received nominations at the BAFTA Awards and the Golden Globes.
‘Ex Machina’ and ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ are a few of the seven films Vikander starred in during 2015. Appearing, most recently, in ‘The Danish Girl’ alongside award winning actor, Eddie Redmayne. The breakthrough star still manages to shine when working amongst well-known, established actors. For this, she has been Oscar nominated for Best Performance by an actress in a supporting role. Alicia is set to appear in a list of films due to release in 2016 and 2017, including ‘Submergence’ and ‘The Light between the Oceans’, in which she stars alongside her boyfriend Michael Fassbender.
As well as being successful in the film industry, Alicia Vikander has also captured the fashion world’s attention. Currently the muse of Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Alicia is set to be a major style icon of 2016. Already pictured at many events wearing Louis Vuitton ensembles, effortless chic just shines from this rising star. By landing her first Vogue cover for the January 2016 issue, this cements her status of being one to watch in the future.
