We've come to look forward to Conde Nast and Vogue's short films around the magazine's cover stars. So far, we've seen Kate Winslet contemplate the "best actress of all time," Jessica Chastain shock a stealth fan and Sienna Miller act "completely normal." Now, "The Danish Girl" star Alicia Vikander, who graces Vogue's January cover, appears in the latest film in the series, along with a special guest star.

Directed by Iconoclast's Niclas Larsson, the short film opens on the actress sitting late night at a hole-in-the-wall diner, hunched over, eating fried rice and looking a bit depressed. She seeks help, half-heartedly, from a fortune telling machine that happens to be sitting on her table. It dispenses cryptic, almost smart-alecky responses to her deep questions, but ultimately, seems to be pretty prescient as to what's coming next for her, at least in the next couple hours or so.

Unlike the previous films, this one features a cameo from Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, who happens to play herself with panache.
