We put Maggie Gyllenhaal on the cover two years ago and really then she was known as the top of her game but very much as an indie actress. Now, of course she is in Batman, the Dark Knight.

Gotham needs you. A little fight in here, I like that.

And you're gonna love me.

And it's really her coming off age as a big, blockbuster movie actress.

When I was on the cover the first time, they were really supporting Sherrybaby, which is, you know, a tiny movie I had and you had to pay attention to notice it, to see what was said about it and I felt like they really did. I mean, you know, I guess I felt like they cared that way about me.

She's never been want to do the big, blockbuster movie. She'd always been the sort of indie girl. But this is gonna be a big breakout for her.

You and still me, we'd be together. Did you mean it?

Of course, don't make me your only hope for normal life.

On other bigger movies that I've done things have gone much slower, there's been a lot of downtime but actually for me I felt like because of Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister that [unknown] had worked together so many times, things went so quickly and felt much more like a smaller movie.

We shot her on the cover in a fantastic blue strong Peter Som dress; inside she's wearing dress by Norton. And she's a really stylish woman.

We did a whole different sort of hotel suite feel with her. And the clothes are just really romantic and beautiful. And it's sort of a, you know, welcome to Maggie's life now.

Well, I knew Mark Abrahams actually a little bit. I think I met him at Sundance and he had shot Peter, my boyfriend, and he shot me and we just had like a nice easy shot. So, I knew him and I really liked him and so that kind of cut some of the anxiety that can come around having your picture taken. I'm not interested anymore in the way that I was when I was younger in making movies that nobody sees, you know, I want people to see the movies that I make. And I hope that this will help that.

She embodies everything Marie Claire; she is smart, she is sexy, she is on the top of the world with her career, she's just an amazing, amazing woman.

My name is Debbie Cole. I'm the accessories designer. I design hand bags and shoes.

My name is Catherine Holstein, and I am a designer.

Today we are shooting our August Fashion Feature which is denim. August being our denim issue, we've taken 4 designers who typically don't design denim and we said take an item of denim and show us how to wear it with your kind of designs.

We were just fascinated to see how designers who didn't typically design denim actually [unknown] in the wardrobe. Because women every day, designer or not, needs denim in the wardrobe and uses it.

All about the clothes, you know, it's all about the clothes and it's all about the stance that's very casual, and they have to just be very comfortable when they see themselves.

It's really the piece of clothing that has been in ever since it was created I would say. And I'm sure it's going to stay around forever and ever.

I think they're way, great ways of combining denim, you can wear it either in a casual way or you can wear it in a very dressed-up way. Denim is really very versatile.

There are so many different labels out there but you can find something for everybody. So, they're easy they mold to your body, you can wear them every day.

And what was amazing was how you can really dress up denim so it looks very smart and very chic. It's not just something for the evening, for the weekend anymore.

It follows the trends now, you know, these trends in different silhouettes, and shapes and every style. Trouser now in denim, and there's so many types of skirts in denim, tops in denim, and jackets in denim.

I love oversized denims. I like them a little bit more rugged. I'm not the skinny-jean type at all. Denim needs to be comfortable, you need to be able to move in it.

This year we set out on a quest to find the perfect jeans. No matter how big you are, how little you are, whether you have hips, whether you have no hips, we tried on hundreds of pairs of jeans. You know, one jeans designer said you need to go into a cubicle in a jeans store with a pile this big. You need 35 pairs of jeans, go try them all on and you'll find one pair that works for your body.

It's a great material because you can [unknown] around on the floor, you can [unknown], you can just treat it in a very rugged way and it always looks good.

Our TV Portfolio is a big undertaking.

Here we are taking the casts of probably 10 different TV shows; undress the characters from the show in fashions that are gonna suit their best [unknown] than the show.
