The Italian fashion mogul has brought his signature style to the thriller's character Jesse, played by Elle Fanning, in the upcoming Amazon Studio production.

In her starring role as the doe-eyed aspiring model Jesse, Fanning wears an Emporio Armani metallic blue strapless top with a matching skirt in the movie's opening scene, and showcases outfits from the designer throughout the film.

Armani worked with the movie's costume designer, Erin Benach, on the project, and she described him as a "wonderful collaborator."

"I was lucky to have access to such a unique collection of beautiful pieces that helped elevate the look of the film," explained Benach, who received a Costume Designers Guild Awards Nomination for her work on the Oscar-nominated film "Drive," also directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

Armani first got involved with Hollywood in 1980, when he dressed Richard Gere in "American Gigolo", and has gone on to create costumes for movies including "The Untouchables," "Ocean's Thirteen," "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

"The Neon Demon" is being co-distributed by Amazon Studios and Broad Green Pictures and is set for global release over the next few days.
