Julia Roberts’s Glittering McQueen Gown Has a Hidden Message

Julia Roberts started her day in London wearing a blue Burberry bomber and ended it modeling McQueen graffiti. Let’s unpack that for you. The actor, who’s in town promoting her new film Ticket to Paradise, settled on a fashion-forward wardrobe with her longtime stylist Elizabeth Stewart. But make no mistake, this was no regular street art.

At the premiere, Roberts wore a custom black Chantilly lace Alexander McQueen dress with personalized crystal motifs hand-embroidered in silver bullion, metal thread beads, and sequins. Among the details painstakingly sewn by Sarah Burton’s team? “JR + DM,” in tribute to Julia’s husband Daniel Moder; the year 2002 in honor of their wedding date; the initials of the couple’s children, Hazel, Phinnaeus, and Henry; the word love, and a sprinkling of hearts.
