Lord Of The Rings beauty Liv Tyler is returning to her modelling roots as the face of Givenchy's new perfume.

The French fashion house is tight lipped on details of the fragrance, which is set to hit shops in September.

"We can confirm that Liv is going to star in the campaign," a Givenchy spokesperson tells British Vogue. "As yet all the information is top secret, but it will be very exciting when it happens."

Liv isn't the first actress to star in one of the label's perfume adverts. Hubert de Givenchy muse Audrey Hepburn became the face of L'Interdit soon after the designer created it especially for her in the early 1950s. L'Interdit was recently relaunched with the Breakfast At Tiffany star's image on the occasion of the fragrance's 50th anniversary.

And pals say the classic looks of Steven Tyler's photogenic daughter is the perfect fit for the brand new scent. "Liv is the ideal choice to follow in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn," says a friend. "She is a natural beauty."
