Julia Roberts didn’t quite so subtly pay tribute to the longtime friend George Clooney on December 4th at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC.
The tongue-in-cheek gown was custom-made by Moschino Creative Director Jeremy Scott and adorned with images of Clooney throughout his decades-long career, including old professional headshots, magazine spreads, red carpet moments and even multiple screenshots from his “ER” days. Each snap is surrounded by a decorative gold frame, a nod to Moschino’s signature design aesthetic. The piece featured a scoop neckline and a full skirt that skimmed the floor.
With input from the stylist Elizabeth Stewart, Roberts paired her statement dress with a black cropped tuxedo jacket, also designed by Scott. She completed the look with metallic platform sandals, Chopard hoop earrings and a gold and chrome manicure.
Roberts was one of many stylish participants in the Kennedy Center Honors. Amal Clooney shone in two different Valentino dresses throughout the evening: first a red dress with an integrated train for the predinner and later a strapless dress with silver sequins for the actual gala. Kamala Harris showed off her edgy side in a black peplum dress by Vera Wang styled with elbow-length leather gloves, a crystal belt and pointy pumps, and Jill Biden sparkled in a Monique Lhuillier dress with sequin flowers.
