This is the first shot of me in the amazing Oscar dress!! When I went into the fitting during my lunch break while on set, the designer, Manon Gabard, went straight to work like a pro!! Manon is a fashion student at ESMOD in Paris and won the competition. I want to keep her here with me in L.A. so she can design more incredible dresses for me!! Who woulda thunk sustainable clothing could be this fly?

While Manon contends with detailing on the back of the dress, I just can’t stop looking at its incredible shade of blue. The inspiration was a jellyfish, so clever and fabulous!
