Jodie Foster Is Giorgio Armani’s Favorite Actress

Jodi Foster in Armani

Or, at least, that’s what he told WWD today. The designer has reportedly created a range of power suits for Foster’s role in the upcoming film Elysium, which, out on August 9, is set in the year 2154 and also stars Matt Damon. Of course, Armani is no stranger to cinematic wares—last year, he outfitted the cast of The Dark Knight Rises, and, in the past, the label has dressed Richard Gere in American Gigolo, Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, and Sean Connery in the The Untouchables, Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, and he’s even dabbled in pop star duds, creating costumes for Lady Gaga’s Born this Way Tour. No doubt, the Armani-clad Foster is in pretty good company.

in defense of the working celebrity

-------

“Where are the celebs?” pouted the partygoers midway through the overcrowded but underwhelming after-party for PPQ in Piccadilly’s Vendome Mayfair. “The best we can hope for is a Kelly Osbourne sighting,” lamented one journalist. While the absences at the PPQ fête might have suggested that London’s celebrities were sleeping on the job, Peter Jensen‘s show earlier in the evening was a defense of non-party-hopping famous people. “I dedicated it to Jodie Foster,” Jensen explained backstage after his joyful show, which combined frisky early Foster references with Julie Verhoeven’s prints. “When you go see a movie starring her, you see it because it will be a really good film. She’s an actress. She does her job. Her job is not to have us look under her skirt or have her fall on her face coming out of a club. Her job as an actress is to act.”
