Well…this is a bit unconventional. While celebrities generally borrow dresses from famous designers for big red carpet events, Hayden Panettiere actually went out and purchased her Tom Ford gown for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever worn him, because I’m been begging,” she admitted on the red carpet. “I feel sexy in it, I feel comfortable in it — and I’m in Tom Ford! I would wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him.”
The designer is known for dressing one woman per award show, and at Sunday’s Globes, that was Naomi Watts. “Tom Ford confirms to me he ONLY dressed
#NaomiWatts tonight,” a journalist tweeted. “Hayden Panettiere BOUGHT her Tom Ford dress at RETAIL. Tsk tsk.”
While purchasing a red carpet gown may be a red carpet no-no, Tom clearly approved of the Nashville star’s decision. On Tuesday, the actress tweeted a photo of flowers and a note that he sent her. “Dear Hayden,” the note read. “You looked beautiful last night. Thank you for your kind words.”
So the question now is — will she re-wear the dress!?
