VERONA — “Is everyone looking at my legs? Good, we’ve done the right thing,” said Academy Award winner Julia Roberts ahead of the first Calzedonia Leg Show, a fashion event focusing on the Italian company’s newest tights collection held here on Tuesday.

The actress styled them with a simple Equipment white shirt, Givenchy black miniskirt, Longchamp ankle boots and her signature, contagious smile.
“I’m just happy to work for a company that has the same values of family that I have,” said Roberts, who was in the city of Verona, Italy, for the first time. “I appreciate this collaboration because maybe four years ago I was getting a little lazy about my fashion and this [partnership] kind of brought me back into the fun of adding that element of stockings and tights,” she continued, adding that she was “a victim of enjoying the bare legs and I no longer am.”
