On that night, Jennifer was the most true to herself. She was the epitome of glamour and elegance. It was Jen at her best. She was happy, she was confident, and she was radiant. She was truly happy. For me, that's the ultimate goal. We really did an old Hollywood glamour motif that night and of course Jen, being as beautiful and amazing as she is, made it modern. She had beautiful hair and makeup, and we added museum pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels, which gave the look a sort of deco-glamour element. In the six years that I've worked with Jennifer, I don't recall her ever wearing that many jewels. It was so much fun for me. The dress was pretty simple, but to me, a beautiful, elegant, incredibly luxurious Oscar de la Renta gown screams for incredible, over the top jewelry to just make it that much more incredible. Her necklace was crazy and I was so happy that she went for it.
