Night before last Julia Roberts took to the red carpet for the premiere of August: Osage County. The actress stepped out in a modern day tuxedo from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci.
Now, when we first saw these images we were taken aback by her stylish step forward. It was definitely a risk, but one that sits well with the actress. She paired her ensemble with a bare leg and strappy heel, balancing out the high neck and oversized jacket. All in, we believe it works.
What we were surprised to see, however, were the other reviews out there the morning after. Seems everyone had an opinion on this red carpet decision. Some were flabbergasted that Roberts was so buttoned up. Others wished she had done something a bit less bland. Even after reading what the rest of the world had to say, we stick by our decision to give this red carpet risk two thumbs up.
Well played, Mrs. Julia Roberts!
