How Katherine Heigl's Pooch Helped Pick Her Globes Jewels

01/15/2007 at 03:00 PM ET

Jeweler Ryan Ryan of Ryan Ryan and Company and Katherine Heigl weren’t introduced by an agent, manager or even stylist. In a very un-Hollywood twist of fate, the two were brought together by their veterinarian. A little over a year ago, Ryan took his dog Lucky to his vet, where he befriended the staff, including Katherine’s sister, Meg. Thinking the two dog lovers should meet, Meg put Katherine in touch with Ryan, laying the groundwork for a creative partnership.  Ryan says that he “immediately appreciated Katherine’s ability to define her own style,” and began to craft exclusive pieces for her. Last year he made pieces for her to wear to the 2006 Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Emmys. This year, Ryan is at it again, hard at work designing two incredible sets that Katherine will choose from to wear at Monday night’s Golden Globes. And you know their pooches will be there Monday as they chose which jewels she should wear.

i love katherine heigl – she’s a great actress, stays out of the spotlight, never wears atrocious clothing, and is absolutely adorable! all around style and class. and she seems really nice too (but i could be wrong).

RT on

Katherine looks absolutely beautiful!

Elda on

The Jewels fit her well, simple and elegant like her.

Mimi on

I’m sorry, she’s an ok actress, and as for style she has none. Ryan Ryan’s jewelry looks cheap, stuff you can find at Claire’s.

I think she could have worn a shorter necklace and smaller earrings

gwendolyn mathis on

her hair was looking healthy

gwendolyn mathis on

she looked so pretty and fresh

beth on

just because she doesn’t wear tons of gaudy diamonds and gold doesn’t mean her jewelry looks cheap. I think she looks really classy, but not ostentatious.

KT fr Cda on

I agree with Mimi.

j on

nothing about her impresses me or even wants me to take notice…

monique on

Im confused. She did not wear what they have her pictured in to the globes. That jewelry would be cheap for the occassion, but she dressed very appropriately. ??????

Jackie on

she looked beautiful – ellen pompeo tried the same do, but was unsuccessful. i still love them and the show.

Nina on

Is it just me or is Heigl’s hair waaaaaaaay too light for her complexion? She always looks so odd on Grey’s with that shade of blonde.

Kristen on

She looks like she’s glowing.

Lindsey on

She is gorgeous! Just the typical girl next door look. She is classy & elegant, but not over the top.

Ange on

Which designer did Katherine Heigl wear @ the 2007Golden Globes?!!! Please reply!

jahnna on

Ange, the black strapless gown she wore on this year’s Golden Globe Awards was made by Escada. I hope this helps you.

marielle on

i’ve been a fan of katie since i saw that movie a wish upon a star. katie is simple looking and all but she has that something that will just grab and take you away. and how sweet can she get for loving dogs? she is a goddess!
