The 27-year-old Alicia Vikander and the 39-year-old Michael Fassbender are just the latest Hollywood couple to have found their onscreen relationship morph into a real-life romance. Fortunately in this case there’s no scandal; no husbands or wives or girlfriens or boyfriends were betrayed and the duo is graced with adulation from the celebrity watching public.
Alicia Vikander rose to fame with her Oscar-winning portrayal of the title character of ‘The Danish Girl’ and Michael Fassbender is known to many for his role in the Steve McQueen drama ’12 Years a Slave,’ nabbing an Oscar nod two years ago.
Now they are the stars of ‘The Light Between Oceans,’ the Derek Cianfrance-directed screen adaptation of M. L. Stedman’s international bestselling World War I era novel of the same title that chronicles the story of a lighthouse keeper and his wife. The movie drew rave reviews upon its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.
We’re still a few months away from awards season, but it’s already clear that regardless of how many awards she might sweep Vikander is a strong contender as fashion and style icon. Rather than follow the trend of figure-hugging gowns that flirt with wardrobe malfunction with high slits and plunging cleavage-bearing necklines she is the picture of grace and elegance in a floor-length Louis Vuitton floral print gown with a beautiful ruffle at the waistline. It evokes the innocence of the prairie and homesteading in the iconic Old West.
For his part, Fassbender’s dark blue suit complements beautifully. She said of him in a recent interview, ” ‘We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re a couple… He’s extremely hardworking. He was like, “Give me something new! I just need a new idea. I need to do it differently.” I just thought that was cool.”
Fassbender in a separate interview opened up about the blossoming of their romance on the movie set, and said, ““It wasn’t the first time in a movie either of us had played somebody who is falling in love. There is an element of separation there…If I’m playing a murderer, I don’t go out and start murdering people.”
