During her mandatory E! red-carpet interview with Giuliana Rancic, Bryce Dallas Howard revealed that she shops for formalwear like the rest of us. She went to your mom’s favorite department store, Neiman Marcus, and bought the blue Jenny Packham dress that she wore on the red carpet.
Her reason was simple: “Because I like having lots of options for a size 6, as opposed to maybe one option,” she explained to a slightly baffled Rancic. That makes her a hero for two reasons: Not only did she proudly admit that her gown was off-the-rack (still something few actresses will do, other than Hayden Panettiere), but she also tossed some not-so-subtle shade at the system that ensures only size 0s have access to amazing dresses during awards season.
