Rosamund Pike favours Armani clothes because they allow her “true form” to be revealed.
The English actress has her pick of designers when it comes to dressing for glitzy showbiz events, but you’ll often find her wearing pieces from Giorgio Armani’s namesake label.
She sat front row at the designer’s Milan Fashion Week show on Saturday (23Feb19), and opened up about why she’s such a big fan of the Italian label.
“At Armani, there’s a way the clothes follow the body that means your true form is revealed,” she enthused to The Guardian. “I felt that the first time I ever put on a pair of Armani trousers when I did my Bond film. I thought: ‘this works for my body'”.
The Gone Girl actress was in a tailored black suit for the Fall/ Winter 19 presentation, and was joined by Naomi Watts and Austin Mahone at the show.
She also spoke about the importance of clothes as a whole.
“Clothes have their own energy. They should never feel like costume. You should be able to buy into the energy of a good suit or a wonderful dress. Wearing them should feel effortless,” she smiled.
Elsewhere on Saturday, Glenn Close was feted at Armani’s Beverly Hills boutique ahead of Sunday night’s Oscars.
Samuel L. Jackson, Jeff Goldblum and Sara Sampaio were among the stars who turned out for the stylish event, which was held after Close scooped the Best Female Lead at the Film Independent Spirit Awards.
“Mr. Armani was the first designer to work with me,” she said to the Los Angeles Times.
Close, who lost out to Olivia Colman for the Best Actress Oscar, added to WWD: “The first important blazer I bought was a black, double-breasted Armani, it was in the Eighties when they had those amazing shoulders. And then the first fancy dress I borrowed was from Armani, for the first Kennedy Center honours I went to (in 1984). I still have the blazer. I probably have all my Armani suits because all through the ’90s, that’s all that I wore.”
