Behind the Cover Fashion: Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has been stealing scenes for more than two decades, and this month is no different with an Oscar-worthy performance in the dark comedy August: Osage County. The actress took on a bronzy Southwest-meets-Morocco look for her December cover shoot, wearing a stunning set of bohemian and earthy threads. Interview | Behind the Cover: Beauty

AGE: 46. CURRENT RESIDENCE: Malibu, California. SHE WORE: The Georgia native arrived on set sans makeup, sporting Earnest Sewn jeans and Frye boots paired with a simple scarf and T-shirt. SOFT SPOT: Roberts was accompanied by an unconventional entourage—an oversize stuffed otter that her son gave her to keep her company at the shoot. FUNNY GIRL: Flashing her signature high-wattage smile, she said wryly, "I wish I could take a pill and be fashionable." IN THE BAG: After making fast friends with MC Photography Director Caroline Smith, the actress emptied out her own black leather Jil Sander handbag and gifted it to Smith (who'd commented how much she loved it). —Marisa Carroll
