‘Tidelands’ star Elsa Pataky shares her Spain-inspired style picks


In the past two months, Elsa Pataky has jetted to San Sebastián for a film festival, Santorini on a girls’ trip and Morocco with her family. The 42-year-old model and actress, best known for the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, shares these adventures with her 2.4 million Insta followers. But home base is Australia’s Byron Bay, a beachfront haven where Pataky and husband Chris Hemsworth (the 35-year-old hunk of “Thor” and “Avengers” fame) are raising three children, ages 6 and under. The Madrid native got her start on Spanish dramas and promotes tourism to the country. She broke out in “Snakes on a Plane” and next stars in “Tidelands,” Netflix Australia’s first original series, a thriller about a tribe of humanoid sea creatures (out Dec. 14). The globe-trotting beauty shares the boho-chic treats that keep her on the move.

“One of the basics I wear with dresses and trousers is a good leather jacket. I really like the ones from Osant. I’ve got a silver one for special occasions and a black one for everyday.”

“San Sebastián is one of my favorite cities in Spain. Along with the beauty of the city and its surroundings, it offers extraordinary, internationally renowned Basque cuisine — from the famous pinchos [bar snacks] to the restaurants with many Michelin stars.”

“I know there are a lot of books about Frida [Kahlo], but Susana Vidal captures the complex personality of this exceptional artist from a different angle. A clear example of female empowerment, the painter has shown that feminism and femininity can coexist.”

“I have been the image ambassador for this shoe brand for years. I’m addicted to their shoes, boots and sandals. I can’t take them off.”

“Anytime I’m in Madrid, I love getting together with my friends at one of the many terraces that are open in summer — to have a chat and a drink — or going to a trendy restaurant for dinner. Perrachica is one of those places that mixes beautiful decor with exquisite dishes.”

“Peekaboo” bag, $3,390 at Fendi.

“Spell is one of my go-to clothing brands. I discovered it years ago, when we settled in Byron Bay. Since then, there’s been no shortage in my wardrobe.”
