Julia Roberts is back on the red carpet promoting her film, Duplicity, after a long hiatus. And while it’s great to see the Pretty Woman back in action, the Hollywood A-lister is clearly not taking any big risks in the fashion department.
Roberts wore a (yawn) black pants suit with yellow gold hoops on the carpet in London and a Lanvin LBD with classic diamond drops in gay Paris. She looked stunning, of course, but here’s hoping she takes it up a notch once she makes it back states-side.
While Julia Roberts is arguably the most bankable leading lady working today, it took a bit of coaxing from co-star Clive Owen to get the mother-of-three out of semi-retirement.
“I [took] her out for lunch and told her that I’d read a script that was dynamite and it would be great for the two of us to do it,” he said at the premiere. “She was actually pregnant, so I had to wait another year before she finally read it and said yes.”
And even though the superstar made noise to red carpet reporters about wanting to work in the London theater, she isn’t making any big plans in the near future.
“I’d like to do it when by kids are a little bigger. It’s a big transplant to come over here, though, and it would take up a lot of time. But a girl can dream!”
Maybe she’ll get used to the spotlight again and start taking more risks – in front of the cameras and in the fashion department (a girl can dream). But, for now, I’ll take classic Julia while I can get it.
