Julia Roberts is the new face of Givenchy's Spring 2015 campaign!

The 47-year-old actress shows off her natural beauty in her first campaign shot, a black and white picture that shows the mother of three in a sleek tuxedo. Creative director Riccardo Tisci spoke to Yahoo Style about why Julia was his first pick for the campaign, saying that the star "represents such a mature woman."

"A lot of people see Givenchy as only 'haute couture,' or only 'street and urban,'" he began. "For me, Julia is many things. She has this strength as an actress, but she's also this beautiful American woman. She's a big star, but she's not a paparazzi or a blog monster. It's going to be my tenth year at Givenchy in March, so I wanted to represent the woman who is more mature, beautiful, talented, but also unpretentious. "

And Julia is modest about her beauty! She told Yahoo Style about a recent conversation with her sister. "She goes, 'How are you suddenly turned into a supermodel You're almost 50,'" she said. "It's funny!

So what did she think of the campaign shots? "Well, it's impossible for me to be totally objective and not make four or seven jokes right now," she said. "I wish I looked like that! If you could see me right now, you'd be laughing so hard. I think they're very cool images and I think all the clothes would have been things I would have chosen for myself."

Speaking of Julia and pictures, why is she not posting them online? "Social media would just be another thing that I'd neglect," she said. She's a busy lady! Of course, she doesn't claim to have the perfect work-life balance. As she tells Yahoo Style, "Especially for working moms, there's so much pressure to do it all and be it all and have it all, and I think the best thing to do is to give ourselves a break and say, let's put forth our best efforts. As long as everyone is tucked in, happy and healthy at the end of the night, we've crossed the finish line."

That is why she's still America's Sweetheart!
