However, not all so rosy as it seems at first glance. Everyone knows that celebrities, girls - the ladies are very naughty and they are not so easy to please.

Designers often receive orders for individual tailoring of evening dress for some stars. And then it starts all the worst - outfit has to alter and reshape hundreds of times before you get the option, they dream actress. For example, this dress Marchesa, which last year appeared on his first "Oscar" young Haley Staynfeld was made for the actress individually. "At first fitting it brought a bunch of photos for inspiration and strict instructions about what should not be on the dress," - shared their memories of the brand designers.

Sometimes vice versa. Rumor has it that some designers offer stylists celebrities bribes (the price reaches $ 200 000), give them the right to free dress in clothes of the brand throughout the year and provide a place for them in the front row of fashion shows, if only their dress appeared on the red carpet ceremony .

Often, the essence of the question is not who you are and how you look.

However, there are exceptions to the rule. In 2006, Michelle Williams, which is far from the model looks, blew up the red carpet for his appearance in the dress Vera Wang - dress was not only the best at the ceremony that year, but also entered the list of the most spectacular images of the history of the "Oscar". Since then, Michel no end of offers designers choose their creations for the appearance at the ceremony.

Happens is that the actress is changing his opinion about the dress is not the better for a few days before the ceremony, and then have to urgently look for a replacement. It happened with Scarlett Johannson in the past year: 4 days before the event, the actress lose one's attraction her outfit and she opted for lace Dolce & Gabbana worth $ 8325 (incidentally, quite modest price by "Academy Award" standards).

Over their long history ceremony "Oscar" celebrities have appeared and their signs.
