The Real Stars of Oscar Night
With the Oscars only a few days away now (remember, Sunday at 1am on Sky Movies), newspapers have begun their fashion coverage with some gossip on what goes on when you're a Hollywood stylist working with an Oscar attendee, and the lengths people will go to in order to make sure an A-listers wears their stuff. For example, did you know Charlize Theron was offered 6 figures to swap her Harry Winston jewels for Chopard in 2005? And that up until the night before the 2000 awards show, Best Actress Hilary Swank was set to wear Dior, until a secret deal was made (and a very expensive gift went to her stylist) if she wore Randolph Duke instead.
The Independent have been talking to folks in the business, including Rachel Zoe (stylist to Keira Knightley and Lindsay Lohan) and Philip Bloch (who's worked with Cameron Diaz and Halle Berry). They dish the dirt on the stars who change their mind, cause a fuss and come running to them for help at the very last minute!
