Julianne Moore has major regrets over her decision to wear a blue satin dress to the 1998 Golden Globes.

The Oscar-winning actress always pulls out all of the stops when she steps out onto the red carpet, often sporting garments from brands like Tom Ford and Chanel.

However, in an interview for British Vogue, Julianne explained that her one sartorial misstep was the navy blue gown with cap sleeves and matching shawl that she wore to the event two decades ago, when she was nominated for her role as Maggie in Boogie Nights.

“Oh, I have a huge regret (over) a dress that I wore when I was nominated for a Golden Globe right after my son was born,” she said in an interview with British Vogue. “My baby was only six weeks old – and I wasn’t my usual size because I hadn’t lost the baby weight obviously – and I was in this very shiny, satin dress and it was very low cut, which was really a mistake because I was nursing. My body looked terrible and my boobs got bigger and bigger through the night and my hair and make-up weren’t good. It was just an absolute fiasco.”

Julianne and her husband, director Bart Freundlich, welcomed son Caleb in December 1997, while their daughter Liv was born in 2002.

Elsewhere in the chat, the redhead shared that she has never been one for “trendy” clothes, even as a child, and in general, spends just five minutes getting ready in the morning.

“If it’s a regular day and I have a meeting and I want to look nice, I would probably wear my really cute black Louis Vuitton dress – it’s great. It’s very casual… but it looks a little bit dressy,” the 58-year-old commented. “I would wear it with a little short black boot and then I’d make sure that my hair was… clean. A blow-out really, really helps – or dry shampoo.”

Tom Ford was once slapped over a broken shoe heel

Tom Ford was once slapped by a woman who was furious with him because the heel of her shoe broke.

The designer and filmmaker told the shocking story during a recent interview with actress Julianne Moore held as part of Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference and revealed he had been assaulted by the unknown fashionista outside of an exclusive Hollywood hotel.

“I had a woman slap me one time because her shoe heel broke. She took it so personally,” he recalled at the event, according to the Associated Press. “I was standing in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel waiting to get into a car, and a woman came up and slapped me and said, ‘I bought your shoes and wore them to an event, and the heel broke and I looked like a complete fool.’

“She thought I had decided to personally ruin her night by making that heel break. It was scary.”

During the candid conversation with his close friend – and leading lady in his 2009 movie A Single Man – Ford also revealed the inspiration for his spring/summer 2020 collection, which he unveiled during New York Fashion Week last month.

“This season for me is about simplicity. Which is not to be confused with simple,” the 58-year-old shared. “I think that it is a time for ease, and in that way a return to the kind of luxurious sportswear that America has become known for all over the world.”

Meanwhile, Moore told the audience at the annual Vogue Forces of Fashion conference that the designer became very broody the first time he met her son, Caleb Freundlich.

“The first thing Tom did was pick up my little boy, who’s now 21, and said, ‘I want one of these,'” she laughed.

Ford and his husband Richard Buckley welcomed a son, Jack, in September 2012 via gestational surrogate.

Tom Ford: ‘My clothes are sustainable because nobody throws them away’

Tom Ford is adamant his clothes are sustainable because the prices mean nobody throws them away.

The award-winning designer and filmmaker discussed the rising environmental problem of fast fashion with his muse, actress Julianne Moore, during an interview at the Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference in New York on Thursday.

While the Oscar-winner said that she has promised to stop shopping for at least a year in an effort to combat the excessive consumption in the industry, Ford insisted he will carry on designing, as his clothes are timeless and not meant to be discarded.

“I received an award a few years ago in Milan from a foundation that Livia Firth is involved in, which is about sustainability in fashion, because my clothes are so expensive people don’t throw them away. They auction them or sell them – that was kind of a joke,” the 58-year-old laughed.

The Council of Fashion Designers’ chairman, who previously served as the creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, said he creates quality pieces for his menswear and womenswear collections so they can be passed down from generation to generation.

“First of all, everything I make is made in Italy. The workers are incredibly well cared for, taken care of, well paid… and the clothes are really not meant to be thrown away,” he explained to Moore. “They are expensive but the workmanship demands it. They are not artificially expensive; it’s how much it costs to put 35 hours of hand workmanship into a jacket.

“They are meant to be handed down, be sold – they are not meant to be thrown away.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the designer revealed that he hates social media, and took aim at Instagram in particular.

“I am exhausted by Instagram, personally,” Moore said, to which Ford scathingly added: “Instagram leaves you feeling ugly, fat, inadequate, dull, pathetic, friendless, sad and makes you want to just jump off a building.”

Dior advocates for sustainability with tree-filled spring 2020 show

Dior has advocated for sustainability and the environment by holding its spring/summer 2020 show in an “inclusive garden”.

Creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled her latest line for the French luxury label at the Longchamp Racecourse as part of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, with the spectacle attracting celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Isabelle Huppert, and Chiara Ferragni.

Teaming with members of the Coloco collective of botanists and landscape designers, Chiuri had the venue transformed into a garden, featuring 164 trees that will later be planted in the French capital, with the idea to turn the “ephemeral” nature of a fashion show into an event which will have a second life.

“We have to educate ourselves. I don’t know if we can arrive at a point where we can say we are sustainable. But I think we can do our best to impact less,” the designer told Vogue.com of her inspiration. “We have to be transparent with our audience. Fashion can do a lot, because it has the power to affect the choices of its audiences.”

The show kicked off with a model sporting a blue shirt, black and white romper, black worker boots and black woven hat, with the look referencing relaxed gardening attire. A range of beige dresses with botanical-inspired prints, loose jackets with large pockets, belted crochet numbers, and striped knitwear followed.

Partway through the presentation, Chiuri introduced several flowing chiffon dresses with delicate floral prints, denim separates, and touches of grey tie-dye, with the outfits matched with espadrilles.

Emphasising the theme even further, many of the models wore pigtail braids, evoking the hairstyle of 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg, while many of the floral designs on dresses and shirts were a nod to the work of brand founder Christian Dior’s sister, Catherine Dior, who had a passion for gardening.

To conclude the show, Chiuri had models parade the catwalk in tailored grey suiting, pretty white dresses with tiered skirts, and belted gowns that could also work for the red carpet.

Paris Fashion Week continues on Wednesday with shows from Lanvin and Mugler.

Evangeline Lilly has regrets over her behaviour on a 2008 photoshoot with Peter Lindbergh.

The German photographer and film director, known for his portraits and cinematic images, passed away on 3 September at the age of 74, and tributes poured in from the likes of Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, while actresses Julianne Moore and Charlize Theron praised Lindbergh’s kindness and ability to empower his subjects.

However, Lost star Evangeline has now recalled in an Instagram post her experience shooting campaign images with the photographer for the Davidoff Cool Water Woman perfume in 2008, and candidly shared that she treated Lindbergh poorly while on location in Antigua.

“Peter’s death has a particular pang because it represents lost (pun fully intended) opportunities in my life. I have so much pain surrounding my body as a sexual object,” she wrote, before explaining that she was feeling conflicted about her career and fame at the time of the shoot. “I worked with Peter on a fragrance campaign. I didn’t want to be there. I didn’t want to be there, wet, in the ocean, in a bathing suit, seducing a camera. I did it for the money. And as a result, despite all of the accolades he came with, Peter, the photographer, was the enemy.”

Evangeline added that she couldn’t relax at all, and accordingly, vented her anger and frustration on set.

“I missed the opportunity to have a special man show me the other side of our industry, the side that is artful, connected, classy and mature, and maybe even show me another side of myself,” the 40-year-old lamented.

Evangeline concluded her post, alongside images from the Davidoff campaign, by telling her followers that she wished she would have been able to be photographed by Lindbergh now she is “a mature woman who would be able to meet his eye and receive.”

Brandon Maxwell is “thrilled” to have one of his designs make it into InStyle magazine’s rundown of the most iconic red carpet dresses.

  To mark its 25th anniversary, editors at the U.S. publication tapped models Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, and Amber Valletta to wear 25 of the most legendary red carpet gowns, and Maxwell was overjoyed to see his pink column cape dress, which was worn by Thandie Newton to the 2018 Emmys, included in the list.  

 “For @instylemagazine 25th anniversary they chose 25 of the most iconic red carpet dresses from the past 25 years to be shot on today’s supermodels, and we are so thrilled to be included!” he wrote on Instagram beside an image of Elson modelling the design as she walks down a street.  

 “In the September issue, @misskarenelson wears #brandonmaxwell pink crepe column cape gown from the Spring/Summer 2019 runway collection. This dress was first worn by @thandienewton on the night she won her Emmy, and styled by @erinwalshnyc.”  

 The designer and Lady Gaga’s fashion director, who launched his eponymous label in 2015 and boasts Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, and Michelle Obama as celebrity supporters, also thanked InStyle’s editor-in-chief Laura Brown and her team for “including us amongst so many dresses that I have loved over the years!”  

 The photoshoot was shot by Sebastian Faena and styled by Julia von Boehm. For the feature, the British model also wears the pale pink Ralph Lauren ballgown Paltrow wore to collect her Oscar in 1999, the ivory satin Marc Bouwer dress Angelina Jolie chose for the 2004 Academy Awards, the strapless emerald Tom Ford number Julianne Moore wore to the 2013 Oscars, and the plunging light blue Prada gown Lupita Nyong’o was wearing when she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2014.

Julianne Moore has credited designer Tom Ford with teaching her valuable lessons about fashion.

The actress was a muse of the American designer and his leading lady in his directorial debut, A Single Man, back in 2009.

In an interview with supermodel Helena Christensen to mark InStyle magazine’s 25th anniversary, Julianne shared the fashion knowledge that her close friend imparted on her.

“Tom, for all of his glamour and everything, is never mysterious about fashion. He’s not precious about it. He’s like, ‘Oh, that armhole needs to be tighter; the skirt needs to be this length; that colour looks good on you.’ He’s very specific about it, so I always think it’s nice to demystify fashion,” she explained.

“Get a good tailor and make sure it fits. Do you feel good in it? Do you feel like it’s appropriate for the occasion? And the best thing that’s happened to me regarding fashion is the iPhone, because taking a picture of your outfit before you leave is one of the best things you can do.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the Oscar-winning actress shared that she was obsessed with jumpsuits and Birkenstock sandals.

“I have a dressy one, a blue linen one, a green zip-up Rachel Comey one, and another shiny Rachel Comey number. I wear them a lot, which is why you think I have more,” she told Helena about her jumpsuit collection.

However, she admitted she couldn’t even remember how many pairs of the comfortable sandals she had in her closet.

“I’ve stopped buying them because I have too many, and I want to make sure I wear them until they die. My favourites right now are the Rick Owens. Then I also have an all-green pair that’s a special edition I got in Berlin. They’re excellent,” the 58-year-old gushed.

Amy Adams’s The Woman in the Window pushed back to 2020

Amy Adams’s upcoming movie The Woman in the Window has been pushed back to 2020 so it can be reworked after test screenings flagged problems.

The thriller, starring Adams as an agoraphobic child psychologist who witnesses a crime, was set to hit cinemas on 4 October, but it has now been switched to an unknown date in 2020 so it can undergo reshoots.

According to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Disney executives, who obtained the feature when they acquired the Fox film empire in March, have opted to remove it from their 2019 slate so they can rework the picture after early test screenings showed that the narrative confused audiences.

“We’re dealing with a complex novel,” said Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler, who is departing the studio imminently but will remain as a consultant on the film for Disney until its release. “We tested the movie really early for that very reason. We wanted to make it better, and we’ve had Disney’s full support in doing that.”

Director Joe Wright, known for films such as Darkest Hour and Atonement, is reportedly planning to do five days of reshoots in August, once Adams wraps filming on Ron Howard’s Netflix movie Hillbilly Elegy.

The Woman in the Window, based on the best-selling 2018 novel by A.J. Finn, also stars Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie and Brian Tyree Henry, and was adapted for the screen by playwright Tracy Letts.

The mystery will be the last film released by Fox 2000 before Disney shutters the division, and there will now be a significant gap between it and Fox 2000’s penultimate film, The Art of Racing in the Rain, which is due for release in August.

Julianne Moore has made a commitment to include sustainable jewellery in her red carpet looks.

The Still Alice actress credits her friendship with designer and Chopard artistic director Caroline Scheufele for turning her into a more conscious accessories buyer.

“When I met Caroline Scheufele a few years ago, she really struck me because she was a pioneer of sustainability in the jewellery world, something that people were not doing,” she told WWD. “She didn’t have to be doing it, but she used her leadership position to set an example.”

Moore can regularly be seen wearing diamonds and gold looks from the brand and recently visited London to celebrate the reopening of Chopard boutique, alongside Colin Firth and his wife Livia, Alexa Chung, and models Petra Nemcova and Arizona Muse.

The label has embarked on a “journey to sustainability” and now uses 100 per cent ethical, fair mined gold as of last summer.

The 58-year-old has tried to extend her devotion to environmentally friendly items off the red carpet as well.

“My husband and I have been trying to eliminate plastic in our lives, not buy any more plastics, reuse anything we have in our house,” the Oscar winner added. “We really think about what kind of space we are taking up and how to consume less, how to use what we have, wear it and return it. We are all realising we have limited amounts of space and resources and it is important to know how to share and use them responsibly.”

Julianne Moore has had a strong dislike of her freckles for most of her life.

The Still Alice actress is instantly recognisable for her porcelain skin and striking red hair, and in addition to her Hollywood career, has acted as a brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris since 2012.

But in spite of her success, Julianne has now shared that she still battles insecurities over her appearance, especially her freckles.

“I still don’t like them,” she told Tatler magazine. “I’d prefer not to have them, but I do have them and so, so what? It’s OK to have something you don’t love. It’s really alright.”

For the cover of the July 2019 issue, Julianne sports a dramatic Prada dress and custom-made feather eyelashes created for her by make-up artist Hung Vanngo. She also appears in a number of other dramatic ensembles in the accompanying photoshoot, including the gold sequin Valentino ruffle dress she wore to the 2019 camp-themed Met Gala earlier this month.

Accordingly, Julianne explained that she holds a deep passion for fashion, and is still shocked by the death of her friend and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld at the age of 85 in February.

“Losing Karl was a shock to everybody, because he was one of those people who we all believed would live forever. He was so vital, so present, he did everything himself. Whenever you went to the atelier he was right there, working,” the 58-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the interview, Julianne spoke about her support for the #MeToo movement, opened up about journalist Gloria Steinem, who she is playing in the upcoming film The Glorias: A Life on the Road, and also chatted about the moment she discovered she needed to take control of her own life.

“It wasn’t until I was in my early thirties and I was really unhappy that I realised I hadn’t made my personal life a priority. I realised: ‘I really want this. I want to be married. I want to have children,'” the mother-of-two added.
