Hayden Panettiere Bought Her Own Golden Globes Dress, Gets Flowers From Tom Ford
In Hollywood, buying your own dress for a red carpet event is considered a cardinal sin, but Hayden Panettiere apparently doesn’t pay attention to the rules of Hollywood.
She told E! News: "It's the first time I've ever worn him. I feel sexy in it, I feel comfortable in it, and I'm in Tom Ford. I would wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him.
She was scolded by the fashion media for the move. Journalist Jim Shi:
#GoldenGlobes: Tom Ford confirms to me he ONLY dressed #NaomiWatts tonight. Hayden Panettiere BOUGHT her Tom Ford dress at RETAIL. Tsk tsk.Despite the controversy, Hayden received a personal thanks, along with some flowers, from Tom Ford himself.

The sweet response should put Hayden’s mind at ease regarding her Golden Globes dress choice.
