The former Irish Tatler cover star returns to her modelling roots to discuss all things Ford v Ferrari.
Fresh off the back of some truly deserving sartorial acclaim at Toronto Film Festival, Caitriona Balfe is back in front of the camera and looking like she never left.
The four-time Golden Globe nominee – and former Victoria's Secret model – models four looks, made up of Gucci garments and Bulgari diamonds, for celebrity photographer Hew Hood.
The accompanying magazine article is, unsurprisingly, all about the actress' latest piece Ford v Ferrari – the latest film destined for Oscar stardom.

Ford v Ferrari – otherwise known as Le Mans 66 in European countries – is set in 1966 when Ford Cars falls under the stewardship of Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts), whose company is looking to make itself seem relevant again.
There’s a whole new generation of post-war, middle-class adults to cater to, but the company has fallen behind. Enter young exec Lee Iacocca (Jon Bernthal) with a funny idea: Ford should go exotic.
Ford should go to France to race Le Mans, which challenges drivers to compete for 24 straight hours. Balfe plays Mollie Miles the wife of Ken (Christian Bale), a hot-headed British-born racer and engineer with a genius for speed.
New trailer out!!! So excited for everyone to see this film. The brilliant @mang0ld directed this thrilling ride ...

The film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on August 30 – to great reviews – with some talk that both Damon and Bale could be up for acting nods.
It is scheduled to be released in Ireland on November 15, 2019, in 2D, IMAX 2D and Dolby Cinema by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
