Style Icon Tuesday- Abbie Cornish as Fanny Brawne in "Bright Star"

I finally watched this movie and I am obsessed. I have loved Ben Whishaw since I saw "Perfume, Love Story of a Murderer", but it was nice to see him play a somewhat normal character of lovesick poet. Abbie Cornish was amazing too and I loved that her character was a fashion designer, it just added a great element to the film that made me adore it more. Watch it now!

Bright Star
Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art —
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like Nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors —
No — yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever — or else swoon to death.
