Armani in awe of Angelina

Giorgio Armani has spoken out about his love for Angelina Jolie's appearance and "limber" figure.

The Italian designer's pieces are popular with a host of A-list stars across the globe.

Angelina has often been spotted wearing his gowns to events, such as a short black sequinned number for the Salt premiere in Los Angeles 2010.

Giorgio has nothing but praise for the brunette actress and her enviable figure, explaining his reasoning behind choosing that particular number for her.

"Angelina has a magnetic sensuality," he gushed to "She has a limber and athletic body, which I thought to enhance with a simple embroidered sheath dress. Angelina does not need anything more - she is perfect as is, elegant in a natural way."

A more recent event where his dresses were worn was the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this year.

Best Actress Claire Danes dazzled in a white low-cut number from the fashion star's line, which he thinks worked perfectly for her.

"Claire has a lovely face, a flawless complexion and a smile that wins you over," he added. "It was only natural to dress her in one of my gowns from the Privè Nude collection - it has patterns of light that become one with the skin."

One film star who Giorgio has dressed regularly in the past is Spanish beauty Penélope Cruz. The 79-year-old visionary puts their collaborations down to their chemistry which has grown over the years.

"Penélope Cruz is always stunning. She is a brilliant woman, and our friendship was strengthened through various collaborations, from the cinema to the red carpet,” he smiled. “It's always a pleasure to dress her."
