During a stop on the red carpet, she chatted to ABC about a previous red carpet gown — her orange asymmetrical Valentino gown from the 2004 Oscars (which has a similar silhouette to her dress this year) and said that she only chose it because it was her mom’s favorite. “I’m not usually an asymmetrical kind of person, it kind of makes me nervous. I like things to all be the same but that one there was just something about it, I love it. I felt so happy that night.”
