When we want to make our friends feel special, we usually send them a card or take them out for a delightful treat. But Julia Roberts took it to the next level when she showed her support for her co-star in the movie “Ticket to Paradise,” George Clooney, at the Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month.
George Clooney was honored with the prestigious award, and to commemorate this special occasion, Julia Roberts wore a dress adorned with photos of his face. And, guess what? We finally know how Clooney reacted to this unique gesture.
According to a report from Us Weekly, as Roberts walked onto the stage, Clooney was completely taken aback and exclaimed, “Wow!” He was genuinely surprised and touched by this thoughtful display of support from his friend Julia.
The dress was truly a sight to behold. Photographs of the talented actor, from his red carpet appearances to his iconic role on ER, were printed all over the dress, each image framed in gold. It was a clever and creative way to celebrate Clooney’s accomplishments and his friendship with Roberts.
As Roberts stepped onto the stage, she couldn’t help but playfully joke about her attire, saying, “What? What is this old thing?… Can you tell I’m here for Gladys Knight?” Her light-hearted comment added charm to the moment and showed the playful nature of their friendship.
Now you must be wondering how Roberts managed to acquire such a one-of-a-kind outfit. Unfortunately, we can’t purchase one for ourselves, as this unique design was put together by Jeremy Scott, Moschino’s creative designer, and styled by Elizabeth Stewart. It truly was a collaborative effort to create a dress that would make a statement and highlight the bond between Clooney and Roberts.
To complete the look, Roberts wore a black cropped jacket, adding a touch of modesty that didn’t distract from honoring the recipient of the award. And of course, she also adorned herself with stunning Chopard jewelry, adding an extra touch of glamour to the ensemble.
We were also treated to a glimpse of the back of the dress, thanks to a photo shared on Elizabeth Stewart’s Instagram account by Serge Normant. The photo was playfully captioned “#juliaframedgeorge” by the stylist, showing their lighthearted and fun approach to this fashion moment.
On her own Instagram, Roberts expressed her gratitude for her stunning look, writing, “My gown playing favorites! Thank you very much, @jeremyscott, @elizabethstewart1, and @moschino, for making my dream dress a reality! George, I’m so happy to watch you receive this highest accolade @kennedycenter on December 28.”
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then we truly don’t have enough space to emphasize just how much we love all these pictures on Julia’s dress. It was a bold and creative fashion statement that perfectly showcased the friendship between two Hollywood stars.
