SHE WORE:The actress arrived on set without makeup and wearing a vintage T-shirt, Earnest Sewn jeans, and black flats.

IN THE WINGS: After posing in an ethereal Giorgio Armani Privé lace skirt, capelet, and sheer top, she assured her 2-year-old son, Aleph, "Mommy's going to take the butterfly costume off, and then we're going to eat lunch."

SENSE OF A WOMAN: At the shoot, the Harvard grad recalled two pieces of advice she'll never forget: "Just because you're becoming vegan doesn't mean you have to stop being cool" and "Never wear Spanx in front of a man." —Marisa Carroll
