In the October 2023 issue of Harper’s Bazaar US, Margaret Qualley, the dazzling American actress and face of Chanel, takes center stage. Amy Troost’s lens captures Qualley in a Chanel gown from the Fall/Winter 2023 collection, complemented by an Eres bra and matching briefs, creating an image of pure elegance on the cover.
The cover story, orchestrated by stylist Taylor McNeill, unfolds a fashion narrative that extends beyond Chanel, showcasing pieces from acclaimed labels such as Loewe, Miu Miu, Leset, Tory Burch, Dries Van Noten, Bottega Veneta, Renaissance Renaissance, Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani and Celine by Hedi Slimane.
Akki Shirakawa’s hair artistry, Yadim Carranza’s make-up skills and Honey’s manicure artistry come together to present Qualley in a symphony of visual harmony, set against a backdrop created by set designer Peter Klein.
Margaret Qualley has made her mark on Hollywood with her quiet and authentic presence. In a candid conversation at a Greenwich Village hotel, Qualley, who is engaged to Grammy winner Jack Antonoff, reveals a love rooted in deep connection rather than grandeur. Their unpretentious love story unfolds in the simplicity of a studio apartment, far from the ostentation often associated with celebrity romances. Qualley’s journey in the film industry has been marked by a diverse portfolio, from portraying a disillusioned teen in “The Leftovers” to complex characters in films like “My Salinger Year.” Directors and co-stars alike praise her for bringing depth and authenticity to her roles.
Yet amidst the professional accolades, Qualley remains grounded, her reflections revealing a woman evolving through her explorations of love and self. Her relationship with artist and filmmaker Miranda July underscores Qualley’s depth, offering a glimpse into a world beyond the screen marked by genuine connections.
As Qualley prepares to embark on the journey of marriage, she reflects on her evolution. From the young girl with dreams too big to contain to the woman who has found her anchor in Antonoff, her journey is a tale of growth, discovery, and the quiet yet profound moments that define us. “This is stuff I wrote in my notebook when I was 16,” she says, a testament to the realization of dreams that once seemed as distant as the stars.
