Stop whatever you’re doing, because this is all kinds of important: for the first time in recent memory, Riccardo Tisci didn’t chose someone who fell out of Pimp Mama Kris’ krotch as the face of Givenchy. I wonder why? Maybe Riccardo is punishing his boo Kanye West for something (“Did you let your wife wear my leather leggings? THEN WHY IS THE ASS ALL STRETCHED OUT???“).
Riccardo revealed today that the face of Givenchy SS15 is Julia Roberts, seen above wearing some kind of goth-lite ladies of The Lawrence Welk Show couture. Riccardo tells Style.com that Julia was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (who also shot Madonna’s recent black and white campaign for Versace), and they decided to shoot her SANS FARDS and SANS HAIR CREW. Oh, big mistake. Big. Huge! Just because she went along with it, doesn’t mean she wasn’t totally cursing everyone out in her head and making a mental note to add the names Riccardo Tisci, Mert Alas, and Marcus Piggott to her shit list when she gets home. You can see it in her face – she got them oh here go hell come eyes.
Regardless, Julia Roberts looks good (Angie Jolie-level cheekbones and all), and I’m not sure if it’s because she knows her 47-year-old mom ass beat out a bunch of 19-year-old model types for the job or she’s just happy to get some free clothes, but whatever it is, it’s working. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to upload this picture into my Lil’ Horatio CSI Inspection Kit and figure out what the hell is going on with Julia’s right eyebrow. For real, that thing is like 8 inches long.
