Julia Roberts is the New Face of Givenchy – We Celebrate her Style

From Pretty Woman to Runaway Bride and Beyond.

Earlier this week Julia Roberts was named as the new face of Givenchy. Ricardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy, explained that when she arrived at the campaign shoot she looked like such a total ruler that he decided to shoot her as herself: no makeup, no glamour.

"Sometimes you shoot someone who's so popular, you try to make it glam, but I really wanted her the way she arrived: black jacket, men's shirt, jeans, which is really what we have in common," Tisci told Style.com. "No hair, no makeup. I said to her, 'Because your smile is so beautiful and everybody knows you for that, I think it should be no smile.'

"She was really cool. She said we should go for it. We did it, and there we are, I'm very happy. It's a powerful picture."

According to Tisci, Julia Roberts was really psyched about the results, too. "She's very cool. Of course, she's conscious of herself. When you're a well-known designer, you're paranoid about your looks, so imagine when you're so well-loved by everybody. She saw the first picture and she liked it, she said because 'I can see myself, my real self.'"

It's an awesome thing to see a fierce, intelligent, not-super-young woman, who is recognised for her talent as well as her looks, fronting the campaign for one of the world's most respected fashion houses. This Givenchy campaign follows a similar move by Lanvin, who recently celebrated timeless style by casting the women of Advanced Style in one of their campaigns.

It's also an awesome thing because Julia Roberts has radical style and looks incredible in everything she wears, on-screen and off. Here, our fashion director Elle Packham celebrates her defining fashion moments, which also happen to be some of films most defining fashion moments, because: "you work on commission? Big mistake. Huge mistake."
