When showing our friends how much we appreciate them, we usually send them a meaningful message or treat them to something delectable.
Julia Roberts, on the other hand, took the idea of support to a whole new level when she sat by her co-star from “Ticket to Paradise,” none other than the renowned George Clooney, earlier this month at the Kennedy Center Honors.
The “Ocean’s Eleven” star was among the eminent individuals who received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors, a high honor.
Roberts wore a beautiful gown embellished with an array of images displaying the countenance of her famous lover, George Clooney, in a tribute that went beyond words. Clooney’s reaction to this emotional homage has now been revealed.
According to reporters, the minute Roberts took the stage, Clooney was shocked, and a genuine cry of “Wow!” escaped his lips. The fabric of Roberts’ outfit was a canvas with a mosaic of images reflecting the ever-stylish Gravity star.
Each shot was delicately framed in a subtle gold tone. The images were chosen from Clooney’s red carpet appearances, legendary time on the medical drama ER, and other significant public engagements.
“What’s this, you ask?” Roberts jokingly remarked as she made her presence known on stage. Just a tiny amount. “Can you sense my joy at being here to honor Gladys Knight?”
And, in case you’re wondering how this one-of-a-kind fashion statement came to be, it’s not something you can buy off the shelf.
Jeremy Scott, the genius designer behind Moschino, methodically designed the brilliant design exquisitely styled by the outstanding Elizabeth Stewart.
Roberts wore a stylish black cropped jacket to compliment the stunning gown – a subtle touch that seamlessly brought the ensemble together without drawing attention from the honoree himself. The addition of exquisite Chopard jewelry improved the appearance even further.
Serge Normant shared a picture of Stewart’s gown’s back on his Instagram account.
The stylist added humor to the setting by appending the shot with the hashtag “#juliaframedgeorge.”
Roberts, overwhelmed with thanks, turned to her own Instagram account to express her feelings. “My gown has its favorites!” she captioned. “@jeremyscott, @elizabethstewart1, and @moschino, you’ve transformed my dream dress into reality!” she expressed genuine gratitude for the creative skills involved.
George, it brings me great joy to see you collect this highest distinction @kennedycenter [tv emoji].”
The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” truly applies in this case, as we are challenged to capture the quantity of devotion conveyed through each painstakingly placed image embellishing Julia’s magnificent gown.
