How the fashion elite fell for Britain’s new film star
She’s only 19, but the British actress Ellie Bamber has already caught the eye of Karl Lagerfeld. Up next? A role in Tom Ford’s new film. Meet a rapidly rising star
“The first thing was, like, what the hell do I wear?” shrieks the 19-year-old British actress Ellie Bamber, recalling the moment she was summoned to meet the fashion designer turned director Tom Ford. After sending in a lo-fi audition tape for a part in his much-hyped new film, Nocturnal Animals, out in November, Bamber suddenly found herself in Ford’s pristine Pimlico offices. “They have scented candles, all of the ladies wear stilettos, everyone is graceful,” she says of the HQ. “I wore these flared Paige jeans, little clogs and a white shirt. I thought, go clean, go simple.”
Last night, Ellie attended ‘My Burberry Black’ Launch Event in London. She was stunning! Enjoy!

WONDERLAND – Rapidly-rising actress Ellie Bamber is winning on both stage and screen. After appearing in Carol Morley’s dreamy 2014 mystery The Falling, Bamber was snapped up to play Dinah in musical High Society at London’s Old Vic. Next up, she stars as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Lydia Bennet. London’s Bamber is an airtight fit for the role of a reckless Victorian teenager. “Lydia’s this cheeky, flirty girl,” she explains whilst sat like a young Lady of the Manor, fluent only in niceties.
“When I started acting, I thought I was going to be Wednesday Addams,” she laughs, combing auburn hair strands through her fingers. “If they ever do the remake [of The Addams Family], I will personally dye my hair and go into the audition.” Until then, her “Mumager” is on hand, monitoring her growing fan sites (she’s very popular in Russia), black hair dye at the ready.
Yesterday (October 19), Ellie attended the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles, California.
