Red-carpet style[]

Prior to the 1990s, many celebrities chose their own red-carpet dresses, with the Oscars being remembered for some extraordinary and eccentric outfit choices, including torn denim, sequinned jumpsuits and even Indian headdresses. For ceremonies such as the Golden Globes, it was rare to see a star dressing up formally until the late 1990s, with many nominees turning up casually dressed. When came to the in a glamorous white dress, it was described as a game-changer which set the standard for Golden Globe red carpet style, and according to, her stylist at the time, "began the time when a dress could actually make a career." The increasing dependence on was something that had emerged since the 1990s, leading to criticism that red carpet fashion, particularly at the Oscars, now appears "bland and homogeneous", following a model of "discreetly elegant, softly swept-up hairdos and lots of diamond jewellery".

That same image can be blasted repeatedly in newspapers and magazines across the country and around the world. That is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars."

A year after wore one of his dresses to the 2002 Oscars, designer said:

"I can't possibly quantify how much publicity I got from that or how much money I made. And now, every time anyone writes about her they use the picture of her in the dress and so it just goes on and on."
