Freshly crowned Emmy winner Toni Collette graces the latest October cover of the Australian InStyle, featuring a stunning new photoshoot and a 9 page article inside. If you get your hands on this and would be able to scan it for Toni Collette Online, please let me know! It would be highly appreciated! :-) Here are some highlights of their exclusive interview with Toni:

Toni on Fashion

I like to feel comfortable! I used to live in vintage clothes, but I rarely buy it now. I don’t have the luxury of rummaging through shops. My favourite city for shopping would have to be LA. I really love it; I also love New York and Paris. It’s so easy and has great variety – and valet parking really helps! As for favourite designers, there’s lots … Dries Van Noten, Martin Margiela, Willow, Isabel Marant, Marnie Skillings, Kirrily Johnston, Marc Jacobs, Sass & Bide. Fashion for me is more about fun.

Toni on LA

I like LA – I didn’t when I first went there. It was a new city and I knew very few people. Now I’ve been going there for a long time, I enjoy it — it’s similar to Sydney in that it’s a really easy way of life. Even though I’m usually so focused on work when I’m there, I do appreciate being in LA — I’ve got great friends there now.

Toni on Exercise

Everyone thinks I do yoga! I’ve dabbled, but I’m really flexible. I need something that hold me together and keeps me stronger: Pilates and gyrotonics [which evolved from yoga]. When I was younger I was so energetic. I swam, I danced, I did Little Athletics. I was out all the time. I still love swimming. I did the ‘Get up at 6am and do butterfly with one arm’ type-of-thing when I was young — I don’t do that kind of swimming anymore. I love to float. I love diving through waves. It’s the most cleansing beautiful thing you can do.
