GQ UK Magazine features The Riot Club cast in its October issue in an Autumn Dress Code feature. Actors Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Jack Farthing – reveal their fashion secrets.

Any fashion tips for us guys?
Men’s fashion is more interesting than women’s/ They get all the best shoes. I love a good brogue, anything like that. What do I like to see on a guy? Nothing too “Oh, bloody hell! That’s a jacket!” It should just be kind of there and not so intense that it’s the only thing you can see.”

The all-British cast of The Riot Club have a pretty great life. They’re young, talented and – don’t know if you’d noticed –they’re all fairly easy on the eye. But are they any good at dinner party games?

That’s the question RadioTimes.com posed when we met up with the film’s stars Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Jessica Brown Findlay and Holliday Grainger. The Riot Club – based on Laura Wade’s play Posh (inspired by The Bullingdon Club) – is largely centered around one epic dinner party. So we put its cast to task playing Heads Up, 20 Questions and Would You Rather. Here’s what happened… WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

Jessica joined Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth and Holliday Grainger in London to promote their new movie The Riot Club yesterday, she looked chic in a white jacket, patterned blouse and skinny jeans with court shoes, while styling her brunette hair in centre-parted natural waves.

The story follows a prestigious dining club at Oxford University – based upon the infamous Bullingdon Club that boasts prominent Tory politicians Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson amongst its alumni. Irons plays Miles Richard, a member of The Riot Club who quickly becomes disillusioned with the group after their bullish behaviour goes too far one night after they rent out a country pub for a private dinner.

Jessica plays the waitress and daughter of the pub landlord, while Holliday is Miles’ ‘common’ love interest.

Certainly Max, Douglas, Freddie Fox and Sam Reid have some idea of the private education system their characters came from having all attended public/independent school in some form or other.

Though Booth says his experience of school was nothing compared to that he witnessed when visiting Eton College with co-star Sam and director Lone Scherfig.

‘We sat down with an 18-year old, even there you feel the sense of class and elitism,’ the actor told Collider.

He also explained that once they had the background of their pompous parts down, the group of upcoming actors found other ways to make sure their bond was easily recognisable on screen.

‘We went paintballing together, went for dinners and parties to make sure we all had great chemistry and I’ve come away from it with great friends.’

The Riot Club is out on Friday September 19

Jess is on the cover of  UK’s Tatler Magazine for September 2014.

She told the magazine she was “desperate” to get into theatre, but was finally comfortable in her own skin. She said: “When I was growing up, I always felt quite odd and offbeat. I never really slotted in.

“And it’s as you get older that you realise that the things that make you strange are the things that make you who you are. And that’s a lovely place to get to.”

Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club was announced as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup this morning.

Starring Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid the film centers on two first-year students at Oxford University who join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.

The movie is described as “a scathing dissection of the British class system” and the TIFF screening will serve as its world premiere.

The trailer was released a little while ago, but it missed our news beat, so here it is, along with the official synopsis:

A privileged young man is inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite “Riot Club,” in this scathing dissection of the British class system.

No U.S. distribution yet, but it opens in the U.K. on September 19th 2014.

Jess Brown Findlay can be seen alongside Max Irons, a member of the infamous Riot Club – inspired by Oxford’s real-life Bullingdon Club which counts Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson among its past members.

Irons stars in The Riot Club – a new film based on Laura Wade’s award-winning stage play Posh – which has released its first full trailer also featuring Douglas Booth (Noah), Freddie Fox (Parade’s End) and The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, as well as Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown-Findlay, Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations) and Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.

Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Eductation) and set at Oxford University (“where rich kids first taste power”), the film charts the course of one riotous evening gone bad for this crop of young, spoilt-rotten students.

The Riot Club will hit Cinemas on September 19th 2014.
