Riccardo Tisci is shaking things up a bit this spring at Givenchy, more classic beauty, less Kim, Kanye, and rottweilers. We’re digging the new direction.
Tisci tapped Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot to capture Roberts for the campaign, telling Yahoo Style why the actress was his number one pick:
“I think that she represents such a mature woman. With each campaign for Givenchy, I’m always trying to make a difference. A lot of people see Givenchy as only “haute couture,” or only “street and urban.” 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.”
