If you think Jodie Fosters looking particularly sharp in her new film Elysium, youd be right and its all thanks to Giorgio Armani.
The Italian powerhouse hooked up with celebrated costume designer April Ferry to create the sharp suits and shift dresses worn throughout the film by Fosters character, Secretary Delacourt: a politico on pristine man-made space station Elysium in the year 2154.
The film, which is released in UK cinemas this Friday, was written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, who received multiple Oscar nods for District 9.
Says Armani: Working with visionaries like Neill Blomkamp and April Ferry on such an intriguing project is a privilege. But my real personal pleasure with Elysium was to be given the honor of outfitting my longtime friend, Jodie Foster. She remains one of my favourite actresses. I admire her work, her talent, her life.
In the film, Im captivated by how she personifies the world of 2154 while also making my designs utterly timeless.
Film has been a key focus for Armani ever since he created the wardrobe for Richard Geres American Gigolo in 1980.
He recently branched out into sets, dressing rooms via his Casa line in the upcoming Harrison Ford thriller Paranoia.More
