THE SPY WHO LOVED ARMANI: NAOMI WATTS PORTRAYS VALERIE PLAME
“Valerie Plame wore Armani in real life,” ROBERTA ARMANI – designer GIORGIO ARMANI’S niece – told PEOPLE about America’s most famous ex spy at THE CINEMA SOCIETY’S NYC screening of FAIR GAME on Wednesday.
DOUG LIMON (the director of the film starring NAOMI WATTS as the former C.I.A. officer) commented: “Valerie Plame is incredibly sexy. And you can only imagine how that sexiness would have worked in the field recruiting assets in foreign counties. So, yeah, it was awesome to put a spy in something incredibly beautiful.”
Added NAOMI: “To the world, she presents this very soft spoken feminine woman – which she is. She’s that, plus underneath it all, she could take you out.”
A spy who wore ARMANI?
“I am an Armani fan,” confirmed VALERIE PLAME, looking chic in a black pantsuit from the designer.
“The first time I really spoke in public was at the congressional hearing. And I treated myself to an Armani jacket, because it made me feel as confident as I possibly could.”
So much so that the jacket was remade for NAOMI in the movie.
“On camera, the real one created a moiré pattern. But she did have pieces of Armani in her wardrobe in real life,” stated Wanda McDaniel, ARMANI’S executive vice president of entertainment industry communications.
NAOMI shares VALERIE PLAME’S adoration of the Italian fashion house. Both wore distracting ARMANI creations on the red carpet.
