Julia Roberts to Star In New Givenchy Campaign

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

WWD, a fashin trade magazine reported that designer Riccardo Tisci chose Julia Roberts as a face of Givenchy’s spring 2015 campaign.

The campaign will feature Julia in a barely mad-up style. The actress will be dressed in a signature Givnchy style, featuring a boxy jacket, lace shirt and tuxedo dress.

According to Tisci he decided to “make her more intellectual, more serious, more pure”.

“It’s a different, fresh, new way to see Julia — really cool and urban, I think.”

When asked why he chose Roberts he answered:

“(…) powerful woman, with sex appeal but at the same time with masculinity, which is my style. . . . I thought it would be difficult because Julia really doesn’t do [campaigns], so I was surprised that she said yes. I said to her, ‘Because your smile is so beautiful and everybody knows you for that, I think it should be no smile,’ and she was really cool. She said we should go for it. She saw the first picture and she liked it, she said, because, ‘I can see myself, my real self.’ Which was the concept, not to try to make her glamorous.”
