When it comes to showing appreciation for our friends, we often resort to cards or special treats. However, Julia Roberts took friendship to a whole new level at the Kennedy Center Honors, where she showed her unwavering support for her co-star in the movie “Ticket to Paradise,” George Clooney, in the most extraordinary way.
Clooney was honored with a prestigious award, and to commemorate this momentous occasion, Roberts graced the event wearing a stunning dress adorned with photos of Clooney’s face. The reaction from Clooney himself to this remarkable gesture was nothing short of genuine surprise and deep gratitude.
According to a report from Us Weekly, as Roberts walked onto the stage, Clooney’s immediate reaction was a heartfelt “Wow!” He was clearly taken aback by this extraordinary display of support from his dear friend Julia.
The dress itself was truly a sight to behold. It showcased various photographs of the talented actor, ranging from his red carpet appearances to his iconic role on the hit show ER. Each image was elegantly framed in gold, adding an exquisite touch to the ensemble and effectively celebrating Clooney’s achievements and his special bond with Roberts.
As Roberts stepped onto the stage, she couldn’t resist making a playful comment about her attire, saying, “What? What is this old thing?… Can you tell I’m here for Gladys Knight?” Her light-hearted remark added charm and humor to the moment, further demonstrating the playful nature of their friendship.
Now, you might be curious about how Roberts managed to acquire such a unique outfit. Unfortunately, this one-of-a-kind design is not available for purchase. It was skillfully crafted by Jeremy Scott, the creative designer of Moschino, and styled by Elizabeth Stewart. Their collaborative effort resulted in a dress that not only made a fashion statement but also perfectly symbolized the incredible bond between Clooney and Roberts.
To complete her look, Roberts paired the dress with a black cropped jacket, adding a touch of modesty that didn’t distract from honoring the recipient of the award. Additionally, she gracefully adorned herself with stunning Chopard jewelry, elevating the glamour of the ensemble to new heights.
Thanks to a photo shared on Elizabeth Stewart’s Instagram account by Serge Normant, we were treated to a glimpse of the back of the dress as well. Playfully captioned “#juliaframedgeorge” by the stylist, the photo showcased the lighthearted and fun approach taken in creating this fashion moment.
On her own Instagram, Roberts expressed her gratitude for her jaw-dropping 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.”
It’s often said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that holds true for the incredible photographs adorning Julia Roberts’ dress. This bold and creative fashion statement perfectly exemplified the bond between two enduring Hollywood stars.
