Renée Zellweger 'loves dress fittings'

Renée Zellweger is one of Carolina Herrera’s favourite celebrities to dress.

The pretty actress picked a gorgeous shimmering Carolina Herrera gown for her appearance at the Oscars last night.

The Chicago star has worked with the designer for years and Carolina says it’s always a pleasure to dress Renée for a big event.

“I've been dressing Renée Zellweger for ten years. I love her, because she loves fashion and has the most incredible figure,” the fashion mogul gushed to British newspaper The Independent.

“She loves fittings and doesn't have a stylist – she does it directly with me. She knows exactly how to pose.”

Whereas stars like Renée are easy to dress, Carolina believes some A-listers are too fussy when it comes to red carpet style.

Wearing the same gown as someone else or repeating an outfit is considered a fashion faux pas in Hollywood, but Carolina says donning the same ensemble more than once shows confidence in your own style.

“Celebrities never pick from the collections because they want something made special,” she explained.

“No one is willing to wear a dress a second time, but real elegance is repeating a dress you like because it really fits. Now celebrities don't buy them, and they ask for another one and another one.”

Yesterday’s Academy Awards brought out some great style choices from the likes of Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence.

However, the Silver Linings Playbook star had some trouble in her meringue-like Christian Dior Haute Couture number and took a little tumble as she made her way up to collect her award for best actress.

Carolina thinks it’s silly when stars pick creations they can’t move in easily.

“Some red-carpet dresses look like they've been lent to someone. They're too tight and they're worn with shoes that are two sizes too big. I don't know how they walk. I like everything to be perfect,” she explained.
