Well, can’t say were expecting this. And in the history of stars and fashion spots, this is certainly a riskier move than just appearing beautiful in a one minute ad. So props to Liv Tyler for throwing caution to the wind, even if it’s still kind of totally odd.
Anyway, the actress has decided to show off the pipes she inherited from her dad Steven Tyler by doing an electro/rock/whatever cover of “Need You Tonight” by INXS and star in a full on video directed by Johan Renck for Givenchy. It’s alright — kind of looks like every sub-Madonna/Lady Gaga spot that comes around these days — and the production ably covers up the fact that Tyler should probaby stick to her day job. She’s not awful, but it’s not an eye-opening reveal of a long hidden talent. Anyway, give it a look below. [via Showbiz 411]
