Among the sea of tulle, chiffon and silk on the SAG Awards’ red carpet, there was one Hollywood A-lister who decided to break the mould and resist a frothy gown in favour of a sleek, black Givenchy jumpsuit. All hail Julia Roberts, one of our long-standing celeb faves, who managed to look equal parts cool and effortless in her Ricardo Tisci-designed onesie.
Clearly, Julia is a girl after our own hearts, as an all-in-one has become one of our going-out staples, too. And with her simple cuff/clutch combo, the actress has become our new ultimate inspo. As the new face of Givenchy, Jules could clearly have had her pick of the dresses, but we love that she opted for a timeless, tuxedo style jumpsuit paired with peep-toe heels. And naturally, that famous smile was firmly in place.
The question we’re beginning to ask is will any of our favourite starry ladies rock a jumpsuit or some evening trews for the Oscars? Some of our most memorable red carpet looks have been a fresh alternative to a standard gown- think Emma Stone in structured Lanvin at this year’s Golden Globes or Emma Watson in her Dior ensemble last January.
Either way, Julia is ticking all of our boxes in this Givenchy beauty. So much so that we’re tempted to shop one of these high street tributes that we’ve found, listed below. Just think of it as a Monday treat for yourself. And crucial Oscars prep, of course…
