2015 has been a good year for the 27-year-old Swedish actress Alicia Vikander. She was recently nominated two Golden Globes and is now the first Swede to front the renowned and legendary fashion magazine Vogue since the 70s. Back then the model Gunilla Lindblad made it to Vogue’s front page several times.

Apart from being the cover girl of Vogue Vikander also participates in an exclusive short together with the legendary editor in chief for Vogue – Anna Wintour (the inspiration to the boss in ”The Devil Wears Prada”). The almost three minutes long sort-movie title ”The Magic Diner” can be seen here:

Vikander’s two Golden Globe nominations are for her parts in ”The Danish Girl” and ”Ex machina”.

Vikander got her break through in the movie ”Till det som är vackert” (In English”Pure”) 2010. Since then her carrier curve has been pointing right up. Now referred to as ”Hollywood’s Swede heart” in the latest issue of Vogue.
