Julia Roberts was announced by Riccardo Tisci as the new face of Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
In one of the images shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott the 47-year-old actress is wearing a pantsuit cut mannish paired with a black shirt with white collar contrast. In another photo sports a lace blouse with giant leaps.
“The mood of the parade shows a strong woman, and Julia is,” Tisci explained to WWD.
“My sister and I were actually just on the phone, and we were laughing so hard,” the Oscar winner told Yahoo Style. She goes, ‘How are you suddenly turned into a supermodel? You’re almost 50.’ It’s funny.”
About her meeting with the creative director of the iconic French brand the star said : “I was so nervous, and I was expecting this very kind of chic man in a suit and a white shirt and a tie. I come walking in and there’s this good-looking man in a plaid flannel shirt and some work boots. I’m like, ‘This is Riccardo?’ He’s so sweet. He’s in an industry that I find very intimidating and illusive – just like the good-looking girl in high school. The whole fashion industry is that to me. And then you meet these people who are so kind, love what they do, and are very interested in the personal aspects of it. You know, the way you look, it’s so personal. Riccardo put me very much at ease.”
