The Titantic star and Oscar nominee Kate Winslet made a special visit
to Paris to see the show, sitting next to Bernard Arnault, president of
LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy), which owns the Givenchy house. Winslet,
wearing what she described as "a mish-mash of Gucci trousers, Joseph
T-shirt, Betty Jackson jacket and old Shelley's platform shoes",
disclosed that she had chosen Alexander McQueen to design her a Givenchy
couture gown for the Oscars night in Hollywood. She said after the show:
"It's going to be fantastic, but it's top-secret".
Titanic star Kate Winslet, in an emerald green Alexander McQueen for Givenchy, chose the designer specifically, "because he's a funky designer who knows how to dress women." A special bonus: the emerald hue matched her eyes: "Somebody just told me [that], but I didn't realize it when I picked it."
