Born in Gothenburg, she studied at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and began her professional acting career by appearing in Swedish short films and television series, most notably in the TV drama Andra Avenyn (2008–10), which brought her to attention of a Northern European audience. She made her feature film debut in Pure (2010), for which she won the Guldbagge Award for Best Actress and received the Shooting Stars Award at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival. She first received recognition when she appeared in the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina and gained one of the leading roles in the Academy Award-nominated Danish film A Royal Affair. Her breakthrough earned her a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award in 2013 and the same year, she starred in the Julian Assange-biopic The Fifth Estate.
In 2015, Vikander garnered widespread recognition for such starring roles as Vera Brittain in Testament of Youth, for which she was nominated for a British Independent Film Award for Best Actress, Ava in Ex Machina, for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama, and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, and was awarded the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Supporting Actress and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

BURBERRY: MR. BURBERRY
Burberry will present the new fragrance Mr. Burberry in April 2016 as the masculine version of My Burberry from 2014. The creator of this line is perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.
“Mr. Burberry is a structure of a classic aromatic fougère that has inspired so many famous fragrances, but this has been totally remodeled and remastered to introduce a radically contemporary creation in its proportions and ingredients.” Wwd
The composition is announced as woody – herbal. Its ingredients are inspired by the British perfumery tradition and opens with zesty accords of grapefruit, cardamom and tarragon. The heart notes include birch leaf, nutmeg oil and cedar, followed by the base of sandalwood, vetiver and guaiac wood.
The neck of the glass bottles is decorated with a bow of the same gabardine material Burberry uses to make its famous trenchcoats. The face of the campaign is Josh Whitehouse, accompanied by Amber Anderson, and shot by Steve McQueen. The fragrance is available as 30, 50, 100 and 150 ml Eau de Toilette with an additional cosmetic collection.
EXHIBITIONISM: THE ROLLING STONES
EXHIBITIONISM is the first international exhibition on The Rolling Stones.
Taking over the entire two floors of the Saatchi Gallery with 9 thematic galleries, EXHIBITIONISM combines over 500 original Stones’ artefacts, with striking cinematic and interactive technologies offering the most comprehensive and immersive insight into the band’s fascinating fifty year history.
From never before seen dressing room and backstage paraphernalia to rare instruments; original stage designs, iconic costumes, rare audio tracks and video footage; personal diaries; poster and album cover artwork; and unique wraparound cinematic experiences that celebrate every aspect of their Careers. Centre stage is the musical heritage that took them from a London blues band in the early 1960s to inspirational cultural icons.
The Rolling Stones have shaped popular culture, often in their own image, and this exhibition will offer a unique perspective that only the band’s own archive can provide. Collaborations and work by a vast array of artists, designers, musicians and writers will be included – from Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey, Alexander McQueen, and Ossie Clark to Tom Stoppard and Martin Scorsese.
EXHIBITIONISM will be promoted and presented by Australian company iEC (International Entertainment Consulting) with the full participation of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood.
