What better way to celebrate 40 years than a truly inspired look back at the decades that brought us here. W Magazine marks this event with the help of four talented young actresses, lens by cutting-edge photographer, Steven Klein. Dressed in digs that represent their decade, Keira Knightley, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska takes us from the 70’s to current day in, ‘Time is on Their Side.’ Channeling Ali McGraw, Rooney Mara gives us a taste of 70’s-chic, while sharing her distaste of Disco. Moving on to the over-the-top 80’s, Mia Wasikowska expresses her love of Madonna, while maintaining a serious disdain for the era’s hair scrunchies. Scarlett Johansson nails the 90’s Goth-Glam look, while warning us against the trials of the turtleneck. And a blonde Keira Knightley brings us home, with her interpretation of the stylish 2000’s, but takes issue with the decade’s obsession with skinny jeans and micro-minis. Four very unique covers give us a peak back in time, while still managing to keep things fresh and fashion forward.
