Julieanne Moore Enchants Us


We adore her. She’s absolutely ageless and in an exclusive interview for THE EDIT,  Julianne Moore discusses her fashion choices, her close friendship with Tom Ford and receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We especially love all the evening wear she is rocking in all the photographs by Paola Kudacki. 

It is clear that the talented actress enjoys fashion, “I think it’s something that should be a lot of fun, and expressive, and obviously have some cultural relevance. It’s about who we are at that moment in time” she says. A typical outfit for Moore consists of her Isabel Marant jacket, boots and J Brand jeans. Last summer at her beach house in Montauk, her husband teased her for getting dolled up to take Liv to riding lessons. “I’d been wearing pyjamas, and changed into my Isabel Marant jacket, a hat and sunglasses, and he was like, ‘Whoa! What the hell happened?’” Her response to him was, “‘I look good!”

Moore’s style rules are simple: “After a certain age, you can’t wear anything with words on it. Also, I don’t wear a lot of color because, having red hair, I carry a lot of color with me.” She laughs, “I read a quote from an actress who said, ‘Only wearing black is like not taking chances’, and I was like, ‘I guess I don’t take chances then! I wear a lot of black!’”

Moore’s attitude to beauty is the same. She doesn’t take risks, having publicly eschewed Botox and plastic surgery in the past. “I’d like to think that I can age as naturally as possible. I don’t want to come out condemning anything anybody does, because I think that all of these things can contribute to making people feel better about themselves, and that’s great. But I also want to look like myself. I mean, we’re not going to live forever.”  

When it comes to acting, Moore isn’t afraid to take risks. She has a talent for bringing a relatable, human-side to all of her roles. Next year will see her appear in action films Seventh Son and Non-Stop, drama Maps to the Stars, and part one of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, with part two to follow in 2015.

At 53, Moore looks at least 10 years younger in person. “I feel like I’d like to be 90. I’d like to be 100. I may not be lucky enough to have that happen. But, boy, I’m going to try.” For more on Moore, read THE EDIT.
