Actors Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton are styled by Camilla Nickerson and Michael Philouze in 'Love Story', celebrating one of the season's finest films 'Loving'. Mario Testino flashes the couple, symbolizing the true story of a 1950s interracial couple Mildred Jeter and Richard Loving, fighting for their right to marry in Virginia, for Vogue US November 2016. Writer Danzy Senna interviewed the actors, with Negga the subject of major Oscar buzz. "Virginia isn't that different from Ireland," explained the Ethiopian-born star, who moved to Ireland at age four. “Virginia isn’t that different from Ireland,” she says. “Land and home and community are superimportant. When I was playing her, I tried to imagine I couldn’t go home again because of whom I married. It must have drained the lifeblood from her.” She also related to Mildred’s dawning racial awareness. “When I was a kid in Ireland, there were not very many black people. I was very much like the strange brown thing, intriguing and cute. I didn’t experience racism there. The first time I did was in London. It was that moment that you realize you’re black. A kind of lifting of the veil.” 'Loving' comes in the heat of America's presidential election, the Black Lives Matter movement, and Donald Trump's shouting promises to build a wall between America and Mexico. That's the double beauty of the film," says Edgerton. "It's a racial period piece, but it also echoes very loudly today."
