Hi there, fellow Julianne fans! Anita Patrickson here. As Julianne’s friend and stylist for over six years, we’ve had great times in even greater gowns! This year, I worked with Jules on finding the one dress that mattered most: her wedding dress.
Julianne and I went back and forth, discussing it quite a bit. Of course we’ve selected many gowns for her before for special events like the Golden Globes and Dancing with the Stars (I’m fairly certain she has worn every style and color under the sun). However, it was important to Julianne that this dress would be a different type of special. She wanted something timeless, clean, and elegant: a dress she could look back on years from now and still be awed by its classic beauty. I couldn’t agree more!
Because celebrity clients have tried on a million gowns before, they have more pre-planned idea of what they prefer for their wedding gown. But with my girlfriends and non-celebrity clients, they are in completely new and exciting territory. Often, these brides-to-be will end up picking a dress they never thought they would wear. My first piece of advice is to always keep an open mind and try on every style — you will probably be surprised what looks and feels right!
