The 47-year-old American actress is taking on the world of high fashion in a big way and looks completely classic in these shots styled by Katy England. This lady knows exactly how to do suited and booted.


On casting Roberts, the brand's artistic director Riccardo Tisci told, "I'm literally shocked, happy shocked. Julia, she's one of the few [stars] that you don't know much about.

"She doesn't do fashion shoots, she doesn't do covers, she doesn't do all of that. But still, she's one of the most well-known people in the world. When I asked, I was very surprised that she said yes."

Take a look at these photos Tisci shared on Instagram of Roberts in his "very black and white" collection for the campaign. Think power dressing, think masculine with a sexy feminine, sophisticated vibe.

"The first time Julia contacted me to work with me was for the red carpet and she wanted my tuxedo. I thought it would be amazing [to get her] for the campaign. I respect her a lot as a beauty and as a woman," Tisci said.

Sharp suit, collared shirt, belted trousers and no make up. Or glossy blow dry. This is Roberts as she is - just beautiful.

"We wanted her more cool, more masculine, more real, more American, if I can say, more urban, more New Yorker," the designer added.
