(Relaxnews) – The American actress is the new face of Paris-based luxury brand Givenchy for Spring/Summer 2015.

Last season Riccardo Tisci captured Erykah Badu for Givenchy; now this time around the Italian designer hired Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to photograph Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts.

“I decided to make her more intellectual, more serious, more pure,” he explained to WWD. “It’s a different, fresh, new way to see Julia — really cool and urban, I think.”

The 47-year-old actress was shot in black and white, wearing a lace look in one image and a slick yet boxy tuxedo in the other. The tuxedo shot also appears in a diptych with a contrasting color shot of a traffic cone with the Givenchy logo.

She’s not the first ’90s icon to appear in a major fashion campaign this season: just last week Madonna was unveiled as the face of Versace for Spring/Summer 2015.
