January's cover star for Vogue is quietly sultry in an array of ultra-feminine looks and it sure seems like a long time since The Notebook... Here she discusses the usual, love life, fellow actresses... and the more unexpected.
Leg hair. Not a current habit of hers but a somewhat traumatic episode of her teenage years. She recalls: "My mother never put an emphasis on looks. She let us grow up on our own time line. She never forced any beauty regimen into my world." The expected amount of taunts ensued. Hard to imagine what with those languorous poses! We'll have what she's having...
A highly successful transition from mean to sexy: the cover star in a Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Rachel is a lucky lady as she stars in Sherlock Holmes alongside Robert Downey Jr (an actor we'd have deemed most unlikely for the part... but we're strangely taken by the cheesy fake accent) and Jude Law. Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, out this Christmas... Flatcaps de rigueur.
