Yahoo! Style is a new digital magazine that’s obviously part of the Yahoo! family, and to kick things off the mag features interviews with Jessica Biel and Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.
Actress Jessica Biel, who serves Yahoo Style’s first cover girl, talked about working with her brother Justin Biel and Grason Ratowsky on the Denver based company BARE. Created just last year, BARE sells eco-conscious bags made out of burlap coffee sacks.
Biel supported her brother on his new venture, and also offered creative advice. “I wanted the bags to be big and more elegant-feeling in terms of what kind of leather we were using, what kind of hardware we were using,” said Biel during her Yahoo Style interview. “Given the raw quality of the burlap, I wanted a nice element of luxury there.”
As for the Natalie Dormer interview, she was pretty spot on when discussing what makes her role as political and social opportunist Margaery Tyrell (Game of Thrones) so unique:
It’s kind of refreshing as a woman not to be playing a character that’s just defined by whom she’s in love with, to be honest. With Margaery, political ambition is motivating her—her relationships with all these different men has an agenda.
There’s also a pretty cool “Yahoo!-ed Myself” video with Dormer in which she talks about why she puts as little make-up as possible when she’s not on a job. The “Yahoo!-ed Myself” will be an ongoing series under the Yahoo! Style umbrella.
