Julia Roberts paid a hilarious tribute to her longtime friend, George Clooney, at the Kennedy Centre Honours in Washington D.C. on December 4th.
She arrived at the gala wearing a custom-made black gown entirely covered in photos of her “Ticket to Paradise” co-star, whose humanitarian efforts were being celebrated during the ceremony.
The dress was designed by Moschino’s creative director, Jeremy Scott, and featured a scooped neckline and full skirt that skimmed the floor.

The gown was adorned with pictures of Clooney throughout his decades-long career, including old professional headshots, magazine spreads, red carpet moments, and even several screen grabs from his “ER” days.
Each snapshot was surrounded by a decorative gold frame, as a nod to Moschino’s signature design aesthetic. The dress was a tongue-in-cheek way of showing her support and admiration for her dear friend.
Roberts paired her statement-making dress with a black cropped tuxedo jacket, also designed by Scott. She finished the look with metallic platform sandals, Chopard hoop earrings, and a gold chrome manicure.
Her stylist Elizabeth Stewart played a key role in pulling the entire look together.
The Kennedy Centre Honours was attended by many stylish attendees, but Roberts’s dress stood out as the most unique.
