attractive,” says Goldsmith.
The 39-year-old arrives for The Edit’s shoot in a mini dress, thick Vanessa Bruno sweater, Tory Burch wedges, a parka and a rucksack borrowed from her children. But this carefree student look masks Goldsmith’s grown-up life and varied CV. Modeling and acting moments in her twenties were followed, at 25, by marriage to MP Zac Goldsmith, three children, an organic food business and two eco books, A Slice of Organic Life and A Greener Christmas. Goldsmith was the Green Movement’s pin-up 2.0 – smart and passionate in Marni dresses and Prada heels.
After ten years, Zac and Sheherazade divorced. She hunkered down and focused on being a mother. Then along came Cuarón. “He was just finishing writing Gravity with his son, Jonás,” says Goldsmith. Fast-forward to 2013, and as Gravity finally premiered at the Venice Film Festival, Goldsmith realized her own new project, a jewelry line of personalized lockets with her
close friend, model Laura Bailey.
“Gravity and Loquet London launched at the same time,” says savvy Goldsmith. “So whichever city Alfonso and I were in for a premiere, I’d meet press to expand Loquet.” Bailey and Goldsmith’s approach is less world domination and more charm offensive, though: a glimpse at Instagram reveals Alexa Chung, Naomi Watts and Johnny Depp wearing their own loquets. “Sandra (Bullock) wears one, too,” Goldsmith adds.
