WATCH Juno Temple For ASOS Magazine: 'I Went To An Oscars Party Wearing A $17 Dress!'

03 September 2012 by

'The Brit Storming Hollywood!' ASOS Magazine declares on their October cover. They're talking about Juno Temple, the dinky blonde actress with a Notting Hill meets Californian accent who Grazia Daily had the pleasure of meeting at Karl Lagerfeld's Selfridges launch this summer.

It was then that the up-and-comer revealed her dream of designing luxury underwear. 'If you wear great lingerie, you can take over the world,' she told us defiantly. In fact, as she reveals to ASOS, Juno owns a whooping EIGHTY sets of Agent Provocateur underwear, but questions whether she's 'fiesty' enough to work in the fashion industry.

If her film roles are anything to go by, we'd say Little Miss Temple has more than enough 'fiest'. Most recently, you'll have seen her in The Dark Knight Rises as well as Killer Joe (alongside Matthew 'hot' McConaughey) and she already has seven other film projects lined up including Jack and Diane, Linda Lovelace's porn biopic starring Amanda Seyfried and James Franco, as well as the 2014 fantasy Maleficent alongside none other than Angelina Jolie. Phewf! So yes, this is one star who ain't afraid to break the Hollywood mould.

Being a Brit girl certainly helps (Juno grew up in Somerset, dontcha know) but she recently moved to the US. 'It was an adventure…if it tickles your toes a little bit, then you should go with it,' she says of American life. 'And I like it out here. I have a lot of people I love. I’ve made really great friends and I’ve fallen in love with someone really magical (actor Michael Angarano - yep, that's Kristen Stewart's ex). And I never thought I’d say this, because I love rain, but actually walking up to the sunshine does wonders for your brain.' We can only imagine...

As for her favorite designers, Juno knows her stuff. 'I’m a huge fan of Miu Miu. I love the way their stuff fits me. Really beautiful pieces, but they’re still young.  Fucking love Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaia…my mum has some exquisite Alaia pieces from back in the day. And Balenciaga slacks are great.'

But despite having access to the hottest designers, Juno brilliantly wore a vintage frock to Harvey Weinstein's Oscar party this year [above]. 'I went to Squaresville, this vintage store in Los Feliz,' she says. 'They had this beautiful bias cut, electric blue, floor-length gown, with a zip up the front and a big sash.  I was in the room wearing a dress worth $17.' Could we love her Any. More?!

So how fitting it is that Juno looks so quirky cool in the accompanying fashion spread shot by photographer Alex Sainsbury. Her Autumn Winter-perfect outfits - from the military maxi coat to the leather skater dress - is available to buy on so get involved.
