Linney’s jewellery ambassador Isabel Lucas follows in the footsteps of Jessica Marais and Jason Dundas as Linney’s jewellery ambassador
The Aussie actor, a passionate environmentalist, is this year’s Linneys jewellery ambassador, following in the footsteps of Jessica Marais and Jason Dundas.
“I have been offered things but tend to turn them down if they don’t resonate with things I believe in,” she says.
“Like leather. I’m vegetarian so it’s not in line with my beliefs so I’m not going to promote something like that.”
Lucas wore a wig for the jewellery brand’s campaign shoot, having chopped her long blonde locks into a short pixie cut last month.
The 28-year-old says, unlike some of her peers like Melissa George, she’s extremely proud of her time on Home And Away.
“I have really fond memories of Home And Away,” she says.
Lucas is set to appear in upcoming drama Knight Of Cups alongside Natalie Portman and Christian Bale and the thriller Careful What You Wish For.
She starred in action blockbuster Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen alongside Shia LaBeouf, worked with iconic movie director Steven Spielberg, featured in an Ed Sheeran music video and joined actress Hayden Panettiere in a celebrity protest championing animal rights.
Despite spending the past few years mingling with Hollywood’s finest, Melbourne- born, Los Angeles- based actress Isabel Lucas was happy to don a swimsuit and brave Perth’s wet dreary weather yesterday to shoot a Mediterranean-themed campaign for leading WA jeweller Linneys.
The 28-year-old is the latest celebrity to be unveiled as the face of the brand, which previously featured Perth expats Melissa George and Jessica Marais as well as former Victoria’s Secret model Jessica van der Steen.
Posing for the decadent summer-inspired shoot, which took place at a lavish Mosman Park mansion, also marked her first visit to Perth.
“I just feel really appreciative to be here,” Lucas told AAA. “It was good timing. I wasn’t filming anything, I had a little free pocket of time.”
The former Logie-winning Home and Away star, who has dated Thor hunk Chris Hemsworth and folk-blues singer Angus Stone, is gearing up for a busy 2014 with the release of four films, including the Erik Van Looy-directed thriller The Loft, starring alongside fellow Aussie actress Rachael Taylor.
Actress Isabel Lucas on way to Perth
AUSTRALIAN actress Isabel Lucas, who will next year appear in a new flick alongside American singer songwriter Nick Jonas, is expected to jet into Perth early next week.
Melbourne-born Lucas will be in town to shoot a new campaign for local jeweller Linneys.
Lucas follows fellow actresses Melissa George and Jessica Marais in appearing in campaigns for the locally-owned jewellery company.
A spokeswoman for Linneys today confirmed Lucas would be in Perth next week.
“She is coming,” a spokesperson said.
Lucas won a Logie award in 2004 for popular new talent for her role as Tasha Andrews on Home and Away.
The former girlfriend of actor Chris Hemsworth will next year be seen in a thriller, Careful What You Wish For.
Isabel makes an appearance in Los Angeles musician SoKo’s new short film entitled ‘Monster Love’. It’s a really different and unique film, and Izzy appears briefly at about 3:10 minutes in. It also features Isabel’s good friend Hannah ‘Mermaid’ Fraser. The song playing in the film is also called Monster Love, and is by Ariel Pink. Find out more about SoKo (who I presume is a friend of Isabel’s?) at her Facebook page, and read more about this film (no mention of Isabel) at Nowness.com.
A street-stranded mermaid fends off a kitsch beast in Monster Love, a new VHS-recorded promo directed by Soko, who also stars alongside Morgan Krantz and actor, model and marine activist Hannah Fraser. Filmed in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, the short is soundtracked by a song that shares its title, the French polymath’s brand new duet with Los Angeles’ lo-fi underground star, Ariel Pink, that will feature on her forthcoming album. “The whole thing was super DIY and felt like making a school project video with all my friends,” she says. Born in Bordeaux, Soko has starred in a number of films in her homeland, and recently attracted much acclaim in Augustine, a sensuous, César-nominated tale about a 19th-century maid consigned to an asylum. But despite her passion for acting, music remains Soko’s most cherished source of creativity. She has just released her debut album I Thought I Was an Alien in the US, which opens with the stripped-down and haunting track that also features here: “I Just Want to Make It New With You,” written with her collaborator Pink in mind. “We were friends, falling in love, but he was just out of a relationship and I—as always—was broken hearted,” the singer says of a near miss that was the catalyst for today’s film, in which she falls for the luckless protagonist. “We hadn’t shed the heaviness of our past. I imagined that after relationships, we all turn into some sort of monster, and only if we stop being monstrous will we ever be able to be real lovers again.” We got the two together to talk about recording, acting, and the logistics behind becoming a mermaid.

It was true! The reports about Isabel being in an upcoming Ed Sheeran music video have now materialised, as he has released the music video for his new single ‘Give Me Love’, and Isabel plays the ‘main character’ in it! Props to Vera for the heads-up on this. It is a dramatic and tragic story directed by Emil Nava, in which Isabel plays an angel cupid … it kind of has a Black Swan feel to it, I think. It’s an interesting video, and I’d love to hear your take on it. It was debuted just 2 hours ago, and is already taking Twitter and Tumblr by storm.
‘Give Me Love’ will be Ed Sheeran’s next UK single, and you can download the song on iTunes.
This is what Ed tweeted about his music video star:
The actress is the video is the amazing Isabel Lucas, hope you all enjoy it x

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a couple of tweets about Isabel being in the music video for Ed Sheeran’s new single:

I haven’t read or heard anything since, but be sure to be on the look-out for this! I’ll post anything else I may hear….
Check out this beautiful new video that I just found on YouTube, made by Isabel and her friends. It looks like a little personal video that she put together with friends, and I was really interested to see the end credits that say she wrote the words in the video. I’m sure I can recognise some of the footage from previous videos she made with Angus Stone. The video was made with Alice Foulcher and Jaimie Leigh Gianopoulos and features the song ‘Dead Hearts’ by Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Mans Bones.
This looks like a personal project between friends, so I won’t add it to our Filmography/Career page. I will add screencaptures from it soon, though. Watch and enjoy the video below – what are your thoughts on it?
Isabel’s stunning look in Angus Stone’s new music video seems to be taking the fashion world by storm, and now Elle.com have an interview with the video’s stylist, Imogene Barron. It gives us a great insight into the making of the video and Isabel’s fashion sense.
Isabel Lucas, Chanel & Wolves for Angus Stone
Beauty abounds in the new music video for Angus Stone’s “Bird on the Buffalo.” Besides the music—charming, chugging neo-folk from the Australian singer-songwriter—both the background (the video was shot on location at Joshua Tree National Park) and the babe (actress Isabel Lucas, Stone’s real life girlfriend) are true stunners. But what really caught our attention was the clothing, which includes everything from fringed leather jackets and vintage embroidered dresses to lacy Chanel cruise gowns. “It makes your job a lot easier when you’ve got great designers involved,” admits the video’s stylist, Imogene Barron, who added, “It’s really nice that designers have started to support music videos, because they do reach such a larger audience. It’s nice to have another avenue than just editorial and to see the way [the clothing] moves and the way it fits. So I’m really happy that designers are now getting on board with the music side of things.”
ELLE: This music video takes place in the desert and features everything from wide shots of untouched sand dunes to flying owls. How did that translate into something with a high fashion bend?
Imogene Barron: One of my best friends, [designer] Jessie Hill, is the director, and I know Angus and Isabel as well, so it was a family vibe—which is nice to work from. The director and I had a bit of a conversation about it and I looked at mood boards and the treatment and obviously, being Isabel, thought, Let’s push it in the fashion department, because she carries clothing so well and is absolutely stunning. So it kind of went from there, taking inspiration from what the concept is and moving forward. I was definitely given free reign. The only brief I was given, in terms of direction of styling, is that the video takes you on a journey.
ELLE: Let’s talk about the outfits that take Lucas’ character on her journey.
IB: She’s actually wearing a little Lover camisole and shorts in the bed scene, which you can’t really see as much. And then she’s a “real girl” and she’s outside in a little vintage dress and Isabel Marant boots—it’s an achievable look. And then she morphs into this beautiful goddess and we really took it up with the Chanel, which looks amazing on her. The headpiece that she’s wearing with it is custom-made by a French label, MellaSan, and we also had the little necklace with an owl custom made by Tiger Frame.
ELLE: Was the Chanel dress a no-brainer?
IB: I definitely think having Chanel in there was perfect, because the collection reflected what we were trying to achieve. As soon as I saw that collection I thought, We have to get Isabel into that. All the colors of that collection just work so well in the desert setting. So I went to the Chanel cruise collection and there were probably two or three pieces that could have worked, but the combination of the fabrics and the dress work really, really well.
ELLE: Where did you find that white, lace-collar vintage dress?
IB: That’s actually one of Isabel’s dresses! She has an amazing collection of vintage dresses. I wanted to evolve her a bit from being her regular self, but I definitely [also] wanted to reflect her personal style. If I’m working with people I like I often use a bit of their personal belongings, especially when you’re working closely with someone and it’s nice to have an element of them in there. I really wanted that look to be: she’s a regular girl, she’s walking down the street. I didn’t want to put her in anything too evening; I wanted her to feel a bit more raw and organic. Originally we were looking at a couple of other designer options, but everything felt a little too…I wanted the Chanel to really stand out.
ELLE: Did Isabel keep anything from the shoot?
IB: I don’t think so, no. I think that designer might have been making her another headpiece. I’m sure she would have loved to keep the Chanel dress, but unfortunately she had to return that. As would we all, especially if you looked like that!
Angus Stone is officially the pilot of his own big jet plane. Despite finding fame as one half of sibling duo Angus & Julia Stone, the Byron Bay-based singer-songwriter has gone solo.
Speaking to Insider, Angus Stone explains his new album, Broken Brights (to be released in June), has been a long time in the making and he drew special inspiration from his girlfriend, actress Isabel Lucas.
“I’ve always been collecting songs and have written along the way for something like this,” Stone, 25, says of stepping out from his older sister Julia.
“We’ve both gone down different roads now and we’re exploring this side of music.”
For Stone, originally from Newport on Sydney’s northern beaches, Broken Brights is an album inspired by Lucas – a relationship that blossomed after they travelled through Redwood National Park in the US.
“She has really shined a light on a whole new part of me,” Stone says. “That (trip) presents the whole inspiration for the album. Swimming in the rivers, being amongst all that amazing power from the trees, falling in love and having it all just unfold.
“We spent our time getting to know each other for the first time at that place.”
Looks like Isabel is keeping herself busy with starring in Angus Stone’s music videos, as she appears in his new one for ‘Bird on the Buffalo’! PasteMagazine posted the first look at this video for Angus’s new single yesterday. The beautiful video was shot in the desert, and features a very blonde Isabel getting in touch with husky dogs and the rain – she looks just stunning, especially in the shots with the dogs. The song is really good too, not to mention catchy, and you can purchase the single on iTunes. Angus’s full solo album debuts in July.
I’m pretty sure that this photo that was posted on Twitter late last year was taken during the shoot for this video – Isabel’s outfit is the same and obviously the background fits, so I am guessing that the video was shot several months ago.
Watch Angus and Isabel’s new creation below, find the behind the scenes video of the shoot further down this post, and then check out some gloriously HD screencaptures from the video in our Gallery!
I’ve now added screencaptures from Angus Stone’s new music video for Broken Brights, which our Izzy is featured in. Check out our original post on this project here, and as well as screencaps in the Gallery, I’ve added information on the video to our Filmography Music Video page here. The quality of the screencaptures is not perfect, but that is because the video was shot on a handheld camera, therefore the image, as you can see in the video, was quite shaky. Which just adds to the beauty of it, in my opinion!
Isabel is featured in the gorgeous new video for Angus Stone’s new solo single Broken Brights. Read a bit more about it below, and then watch the clip itself…
We’ll have screencaptures from the video up here over the weekend!
Angus Stone inhabits a Hipstamatic world in the self-directed video for his new solo tune ‘Broken Brights’. It’s a totally lo-fi affair, filmed in California’s Redwood Forest with his partner, actress Isabel Lucas – and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the clip!
“We planned the trip when we first met and it was here we traveled together for the first time,” explains Angus. “I thought I would bring along an old camera and capture some love along the way. With this old camera we didn’t know whether it worked or not as it was film. We knew it clicked over but that was all we knew… so it was a great feeling to get the rolls back some months after and see the footage had marked our time in the woods as a love.”
‘Broken Brights’ is the first song lifted from Angus’ forthcoming solo record which will be out in July. In the meantime, get cosy with this brand new film clip.
