Watch out Academy—Raf Simons is making his foray back into film! The Dior artistic director will be the costume designer for Sigourney Weaver and Isabelle Huppert's next flick, The Body Artist, which probably explains why the two actresses braved the snow to see Simons' couture show in Paris this week.

According to a report in Vogue UK, the film is based on Don DeLillo's novella, The Body Artist and will be directed by Luca Guadagnino, who goes way back with the Belgian designer. Simons' created the wardrobe for Tilda Swinton in the director's 2009 blockbuster, This Is Love—which was up for an Oscar nomination for costume design.

It'll be fascinating to see what Simons dreams up this time, no?
