Actress Hayden Panettiere had the guts to buy her Tom Ford dress for the Golden Globes on Sunday night, which is a major no-no in the Hollywood world. Most celebrities borrow their dresses from designers, but the Nashville actress bought her dress at retail. Even though the dress wasn’t specifically designed for her, Ford sent her a bouquet of flowers and a thank you note.
Panettiere had nothing but gracious things to say about her dress when speaking with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic on Sunday, noting that it was the first time she’d worn anything by the designer. “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,” she said.
In addition to buying the dress off the rack, Ford usually only does one dress per awards show and Naomi Watts was supposed to be it on Sunday.
Panettiere looked gorgeous in the black and white dress and Ford showed that he could not be angry at the former Heroes star. “You looked beautiful last night. Thank you for your kind words,” Ford wrote in a thank you note that Panettiere shared on Twitter.
