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.

Panettiere bought her Golden Globes dress which was designed by Tom Ford. She stunned in the black and white gown and couldn’t resist buying it when she saw it in the store.

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:

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.
