Riccardo Tisci announced via Instagram last night that Julia Roberts is the face of Givenchy’s spring 2015 campaign, photographed by Mert and Marcus.
Tisci told Yahoo Style why he selected Roberts: “For me, Julia is many things. She has this strength as an actress, but she’s also this beautiful American woman. She’s a big star, but she’s not a paparazzi or a blog monster. It’s going to be my tenth year at Givenchy in March, so I wanted to represent the woman who is more mature, beautiful, talented, but also unpretentious.”
The Oscar-winning actress, on the other hand, can’t quite believe her new “supermodel status.” She tells Yahoo, “My sister and I were actually just on the phone, and we were laughing so hard. She goes, ‘How are you suddenly turned into a supermodel? You’re almost 50.’ It’s funny.”
