Julia Roberts has played some memorable characters. One role where she was unforgettable was when she played Erin Brokovich. The Academy Awards shared this sentiment and honoured her with Best Actress In A Leading Role in 2001. How better to commemorate this special night than to dress the part.
Julia wore a gorgeous vintage black-velvet Valentino couture gown. The simplicity and elegance of the dress was paired with stunning diamonds that pop with the black velvet. Julia’s jewellery was from Van Cleef & Arpels. The “Snowflake” platinum bracelet had a total of 22 carats of diamonds.* Since the bracelet was on loan to Roberts, it was bought one month later by singer Luis Miguel for $91,000 for Mariah Carey, his girlfriend at the time.
