Why Imogen Poots Is Our One to Watch

20/08/2015 - 01:15 PM

If you don't already know Imogen Poots, be prepared to become very well acquainted with her. The young actress is about to appear in She's Funny That Way with Jennifer Aniston [1] and Owen Wilson [2], after appearing in a series of big hits in 2014. But fashion fans may know her better as the face of Marni [3] for H&M [4] and Chloé fragrance. Since her breakout role in the horror film 28 Weeks Later, she's been a firm favourite with fashion brands for her quirky English rose look, wavy blonde hair, and model figure (her older brother is actually a male model). Imogen favours brands with a sense of fun like Prada [5], Miu Miu [6], and Marni, but she isn't afraid to pull out all the stops in a dramatic gown by Givenchy [7] or Nina Ricci [8]. Take a look at some of her fashion moments to date, and watch this space for more from one of our new red carpet favourites.
