The most talked-about gown on Oscar night was the Marchesa number that Stacy Keibler wore to accessorize George Clooney. Dressed to resemble an Academy Award statue, the statuesque blonde actress, dancer, former pro-wrestler and red carpet accoutrement almost didn’t wear the most photographed dress of the evening.
In the March 28th issue of Style.com magazine, nymag.com reports that the shiny gold number was just seconds away from staying home, or at least in Georgina Chapman’s fit room. Keibler and Chapman are shown late on Sunday afternoon with the Clooney escort wearing a dress of light grey tulle and ruffles.
The makeup people were even putting the final touch ups on Keibler’s makeup in the photo accompanying the article. However, a last minute creative spark must have come to the co-founder of the fashion house who was dressed to kill in sky-high Louboutins, leather pants, fur jacket, and measuring tape.
Chapman looked relaxed sitting on the floor while dressing Keibler like a Barbie doll. However, Chapman had some powder and paint to do herself.
Georgina is the London-born wife of Harvey Weinstein, CEO of the Weinstein Co. Weinstein is best known as founder of Miramax Film Company which won an Academy Award for Shakespeare in Love.
However, it seemed the night belonged to his wife as Chapman gave George Clooney the trophy he bragged about taking home. The grey dress was the girly style Baltimore friends and fashionistas wanted to see their hometown girl wear. However, Georgina and George knew best.
