Why Renée Zellweger Sticks with 'Classic' Go-To Designer Carolina Herrera

When actress Renée Zellweger hits the red carpet, she always looks the epitome of chic sophistication–like someone sprinkled her with a little old-school Hollywood fairy dust before she left the house. That someone is more often than not her friend and go-to designer Carolina Herrera, whose gowns the actress has been wearing both on and off the red carpet for years. “It’s classic. It’s beautifully tailored. No surprises,” she sums up in the November issue of British Harper’s Bazaar, on which she stars on the cover. And it’s not just a sense loyalty or fashion sense that stops the 41-year-old actress from going elsewhere. Zellweger says her upbringing in a small Texan town with conservative, hard-working parents instilled a sense of decency and frugality in her from an early age. “I can’t have 90 people making things for me that I might not wear,” she states adamantly. “To have so many people expend so much effort potentially for nothing – I wouldn’t sleep at night.” A Hollywood actress with style and a conscience? Now that’s something worth celebrating. The November issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, is on sale beginning Thursday, Oct. 7.  - Monique Jessen
