She also slipped herself into a Grecian-inspired white gown with a plunging neckline, accenting the look with a dazzling choker.

Her latest photo-shoot came one day after the finale aired for the second season of her hit HBO show Big Little Lies, which she stars in and helps executive produce.

The finale was a ratings dynamo with nearly 2M viewers during the first airing; that number is expected to increase dramatically with additional showings. 

The first season, created by David E. Kelley and directed by Reese’s Wild collaborator Jean-Marc Vallee, was based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty.

Although it was meant to be a mini-series, it met with such acclaim that it got a second season, with Liane helping to devise the storyline.

According to a report in IndieWire, British director Andrea Arnold was brought aboard the second season because Jean-Marc was busy with HBO’s Sharp Objects.

However, David allegedly kept his real goal secret from Andrea – to have Jean-Marc come in during post-production and alter the product.

David is said to have felt that Jean-Marc’s return would help ensure a cohesive ‘style,’ in IndieWire’s terminology, across both seasons.

Jean-Marc’s presence in post-production resulted in a 17-day re-shoot, with the edit decamping to Montreal, where he lives, from London, where Andrea is based.

‘There wouldn’t be a Season 2 of Big Little Lies’ without Andrea Arnold. We at HBO and the producers are extremely proud of her work,’ said the network statement.

‘As with any television project, the executive producers work collaboratively on the series and we think the final product speaks for itself.’
