FAULT: What do you love most about the modelling industry? Hanna: I think what I love most is that I’m able to portray so many different looks and try so many different styles. I just get to meet so many different people and fashion has always been one of my favourite things and main inspirations so the fact that I get to work with that is great. I’m only 5’2” so I never really thought modelling would be a career and the fact that I was able to make something out of that, and just prove that you don’t have to be like 5’10” to be able to do modelling.   You are based in L.A. but have you ever considered moving to one of the fashion capitals for your career? For now I love living in L.A. A lot of my modelling is based there just because of my size. I feel like they’re more acceptable to tattoos and edginess, but recently I have been doing more out here in London and in Tokyo as well.   What do you like most about London? I think the fashion. I feel like people are a little bit more edgy and daring in London compared to L.A. and I also love the transportation in London. I hate driving and in L.A. you have to have a car to get anywhere, there’s no real public transportation and here it’s so easy to get anywhere.

What are your favourite trends of the moment? Right now for Fall and Winter I’m just loving oversized shirts as dresses and anything comfortable. I love just wearing big oversized clothes and pairing it with a really crazy pair of shoes cause I like height. I love the whole plaid, tartan trend that’s happening right now and I just wear a lot of black. I love KTZ!

How would you describe your personal style? I guess it kind of changes day by day. I do love to be comfortable but one day I might go for a more edgy late 70s punk vintagy look and then I could be more boho 60s chic type of thing with a goth inspiration. I’m always changing.   What’s a typical day in the life of Hanna Beth? I guess I don’t really have typical days because I’m always doing something different whether it’s with modelling or something that has to do with my blogging. I’ve been blogging now for 7-8 years so I might be going into Buzz Media and having meetings or I work with a few other fashion brands doing collaborations so I’ve been doing that. When I’m not working I like to just hang out with my friends, go out dancing, go to the cinema, keep it chilled.

In previous interviews your spoken about your spirituality and about ‘big loves’ and things like that. Can you tell us a bit about this life philosophy? I guess I just try to live my live to the fullest each day and if something’s not making me happy I don’t want to do it, even if it’s a company I don’t fully believe or style I’m not fully in to – I wouldn’t want to promote something I’m not in to because I just feel like life’s too short. I don’t want to settle. I try to always stay positive and make the most of every situation.

Perry, Jesy, Jade and Leigh-Anne, who have a huge 12 page spread in the issue, were shot exclusively for FAULT by Benjamin Johnson and styled by Marika Page. The in-your-face style of the images reflect the band’s constant evolution in terms of musical style: not content to rest on their laurels after the success of their debut, DNA, the girl’s second album, Salute, has called a much wider audience to attention. Love them or hate them: Little Mix refuse to be ignored.

Music, friendship, success and going global. Sound great? Yep, we agree.

Friends since elementary school, and now bringing their individual styles to the world at large, Mac Miller and Dylan Reynolds might represent completely different genres but they also share a passion for great composition and all-round musical ability.

While rappers traditionally talk a big game when it comes to representing their home town and their friends, it’s hard to think of any who come close to the level of loyalty and belief shown by Mac in Dylan. We caught up with the Pittsburgh-born duo at Mac’s house in LA (thanks again Mac, we had a blast). While Dylan posed in Mac’s private studio for our shoot, Mac shunned the limelight and insisted that Dylan be the focus of our piece.

This wasn’t a meaningless show of sentimentality. Mac clearly believes in Dylan’s talent – and it’s hard to argue about musical ability with a man who has garnered almost implausible levels of success in such a short time. Over the past couple of years, the facts speak for themselves: two studio albums full of hit songs, millions of fans, the launch of his own record label and an MTV show in his honour.

Listening to Dylan’s work, we can’t see why you’d want to disagree with Mac. Signed to Mac’s REMember Music label (a classic example of ‘putting your money where your mouth is’), Dylan brings a unique talent to the roster. His flawless (or should we say FAULTless?) voice is matched by the incredible emotion he brings to each of his songs. It really is a pleasure to hear an artist register the level of feeling that Dylan does while still hitting his notes so cleanly.

Speaking to the two artists, one thing became immediately and abundantly clear: both of them put great stock in their personal convictions. Neither have any intention of compromising their integrity for a quick fix of fame – that is most likely something else that has kept the pair so close for so long. They’ve kept their own styles while retaining a respect for other people’s – more than that, they’ve both openly embraced diverse genres and inspirations. It’s something that Dylan is only just beginning to show in his music that is available to the wider public (check out ‘Tightrope’) but it’s something that is definitely to be applauded.

Singer-songwriter Dylan Reynolds – stepping into the spotlight in 2014. Grooming by Anna Branson.

FAULT: Mac – 2013: what a year for you! T.V show, tours, mix-tapes, launching your own record label, a clothing line… What’s up next for you?

Mac: If I told you that, I’d have to kill you.

What kind of talent are looking to sign to your REMember Label?

I’m looking for people who have a genuine love for music. I’m not looking for people who want a ticket to the “Big Show”. I want people who are ready to build and learn and become great. I want artists with potential and an open mind. No specifics in genre.

How would you describe Dylan’s music and what kind of impact do you see him having on the industry?

Dylan is honest. In a world where young people are manipulated and turned into consumers. Dylan is the truth. He is a young man with a story to tell. He has a passion for the art and he just wants to inspire people. He is not trying to turn his fans into consumers and become a product. His goals are far higher.

FAULT: Dylan, can you tell us more about your musical background? How long have you been writing and recording, and who/what have been the biggest influences on your sound?

Dylan: I started playing guitar and writing when as a teenager after my family moved out to a pretty isolated house in the country. So it was really out of boredom at the time, although it quickly morphed into something very different. Early on I started as a drummer.

You’ve been working on your EP – did you have an overall theme in mind for the tracks? What were some of the influences behind the singles? We’re especially curious about ‘Spanish Civil War’…

There is a definite theme to this album. It starts with a track called ‘Lifeline’ (the title track), which is about a time in a relationship when I realized I wasn’t going to die if it ended. So it’s essentially about a toxic co-dependent relationship in its final stage. The album kind of follows this trend and documents different stages of multiple relationships in different surrealistic settings.

Did you ever think in a million years, when you were growing up in Pittsburgh, that you’d ever being making music, working and touring together with Mac?

I think I always had a feeling that we were both going to be involved with music pretty early on, but I had no idea that it was going to turn into what it is. Working this closely with one of your best friends is pretty special.

What are you currently working on, Dylan, and what are you plans for 2014?

I’ve just finished my debut EP and I have a video for my single ”Young and Set” that will be coming out soon as well. I don’t know whats going to happen in 2014 but think its gonna be a big year for me in some way.

When speaking of her starring roles in the upcoming movies, ‘The Last Duane’ and ‘The Tell Tale Heart,’ Rose McGowan is funny and honest, and when speaking of her directorial debut, she is positively exuberant. But when speaking of things not work related, one can’t help but feel her guard come up.

FAULT: I want to talk about the two movies you have coming out in 2014: The Last Duane and The Tell Tale Heart; with the economy the way it is, let’s say you have only ten bucks, which do you see?

ROSE: Probably The Last Duane. I like westerns and I liked the people involved. I kinda hope the other stays on the shelf. I felt a little duped by Tell Tale. Blinded by Poe, as it were. Sometimes you think people have a strong vision, and it’s often not the case. Very hard to tell beforehand. Sucks discovering it.

 

Have you ever done a movie you later didn’t like?

Tell Tale. And there are more where that came from. It’s very hard to make a film that comes together on all levels. It’s like painting with 100 paintbrushes that are held by individual egos. Also, I’ve worked with some not so nice people. Such a drag. If I have a troubling experience, I won’t watch the product.

Interview by Chris Purnell

I really want to see the short film you directed, Dawn. What made you want to direct this story?

I have my own vision, and it’s a strong one. I want to tell my own stories, not just interpret someone else’s. I feel like I’ve finally found the right job and it’s awesome. Getting into Sundance as a director, (over 8,100 submitted, 12 were chosen for narrative competition) is the high point of my career. By far. To be at Sundance representing myself is huge.

 

Is directing the future?

That is an unequivocal yes.

Quite a lot is made of your love life.  I was wondering how it feels to have your personal life reported on.

Well, I feel it’s lazy when “journalists” dredge up past relationships. I also don’t need to explain myself or my choices to anyone. I can understand interest in current ones, but the past is the past. I think less of the writers who ask, they disappoint me with the banality of their questions. You at least asked it in a more interesting way.

She first wowed us with her sharp vocals and quirky style with now-defunct band Theaudience back in 1997. Since then, Sophie Ellis Bextor has duetted with the Manic Street Preachers, released four solo albums and appeared as a contestant on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Her fifth studio album, Wanderlust, was released in January, and a tour in support of the album will get under away this year. FAULT spoke to Sophie in between gruelling ‘Strictly’ training sessions and found out about her past, present and future, what it is that she loves about French dance music and what to expect from her new album.

FAULT: You’ve had a busy year this year – completing your new album Wanderlust and now appearing on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. Has it been hard being away from your family?

Sophie: The first half of the year was really nice and chilled – we actually produced my album in 10 days! I’m looking forward to Christmas with my family as Strictly has been so time-consuming, but it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I had to go into it thinking, ‘I’ll never get to do this again, so I have to make the most of it.’

 

How are you finding your time on ‘Strictly’? What have been your best and worst moments of the series?

Most of it is the best bit! It’s a lot of hard work learning all the steps but when the show starts and the music plays, something kicks in and you forget everything and just get this elated feeling. The worst part is the anticipation and nerves before going on stage, and wondering if it’ll be ‘alright on the night’, as it were.

Interview by Thea de Gallier

Will you stay in touch will fellow contestants once the show has ended? Anyone you got on with particularly well?

Honestly, all of them! I speak to Abbey [Clancy] a fair amount and she’s lovely. Everyone has their guard down, there’s no cockiness as we all went into it thinking ‘What have we signed up for?’

 

How would you describe the sound of your latest album Wanderlust? Do you feel you’ve grown up/evolved as a musician?

It’s hard to pin down; I’m rubbish at describing the sound of my music. Someone said it sounds like the soundtrack to a Seventies Eastern-European movie! I suppose it is slightly more grown up, but it still has a bit of bounce as I love dance.

Do you find it difficult juggling being a mum and a famous musician?

Yes and no – I’ve spent a large part of my career as a mother and I’ve never considered not working, so they’ve had to come along for the ride. I just sweep the kids up on a trip or to a festival; they don’t know any different. I can definitely think of worse childhoods than having people around you making music all the time, though!

Jeremy Piven – exclusive shoot for FAULT Issue 17’s reversible cover

We are delighted to reveal our reversible back cover, featuring ‘Entourage’ and ‘Mr Selfridge’ star Jeremy Piven, for FAULT Issue 17. Our Other Issue (Winter 2013-14) also features Naomie Harris as our front cover star, Jeremy on the reversible cover (and internal Men’s section cover), additional internal section covers with Little Mix (Music), Sophie Ellis Bextor (Beauty) and extensive features with Rose McGowan and Ashley Roberts.

He skyrocketed to fame as the ball-busting agent, Ari Gold, in the hit HBO series Entourage, but Jeremy Piven is adamant that his most recent role as Harry Selfridge in ITV’s Mr. Selfridge, is his most exciting to date.

FAULT: What can viewers expect from the new season [of ‘Mr Selfridge’]?

Jeremy: The backdrop is the First World War and some have to go off to war and we get to see this ripple effect throughout. I think the writers and everyone did a beautiful job of showing that this season. There are new characters and they all intertwine beautifully and seamlessly. I feel like with the amount of characters that we have, I wish we had more episodes because it’s an embarrassment of riches in terms of what they bring. Any one of them at this point could be our main story and it would be fascinating. I think the only problem we have on our show is trying to figure out a way to cut it.

Who are your acting idols?

The first person to come to mind would be Javier Bardem. He never lets you down. He’s a complete and utter inspiration. I like Tom Hardy’s balls. I mean not literally, I’ve never seen Tom Hardy’s balls, just for the record. We worked together in Black Hawk Down and he’s a gamer, he’s always up for it, he’s fearless and he’s really fun to watch as well.

Mark Rylance – I was lucky enough to see him on stage in Twelfth Night and I hope to see him in Richard III in New York. He’s completely improvisational, totally alive on stage doing Shakespeare.

Interview by Rebecca Unger

Would you ever want to tackle Shakespeare again yourself? What Shakespeare character could you see yourself playing?

I’m just stupid enough to want to play Iago, especially after seeing Rory Kinnear do such a brilliant job. But it’s not about comparing and contrasting. He was just so beautiful in it and obviously so was Adrian and that would be a brilliant role.

I played Mark Antony before. I’d like to give it a shot again before I’m too old. Maybe I already am, I don’t know.

 

You may be on the cover of Men’s Fitness. I think that means you’re not too old to play Mark Antony again.

You never know. I already did the shoot. They may cover me with a wet blanket and put me on the last page, we don’t know.

Is there anyone you’re absolutely dying to work with on a future project?

Getting back to Shakespeare, I’d love to mix it up with Idris Elba. I’d love to work with Idris really in anything.

 

The question you’ve been asked a million times: what’s happening with the Entourage movie?

It’s happening. I believe we’ll start shooting in the middle of February and it will probably be a summer movie.
