We like Reese Witherspoon‘s sweet style, but we love when she goes sexy, and she did just that at the Golden Globes Sunday night in custom Calvin Klein Collection and $3.7 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry. Her stylists gave PEOPLE the rundown from start to finish.

THE DRESS. Stylist Leslie Fremar came up with the color for Witherspoon’s gown in a dream, then tasked Calvin Klein with making it happen — and it certainly didn’t come together overnight. The collaboration began about a month ago and ended with one final fitting Sunday morning, culminating in a result Fremar was thrilled with. “I love the color. I love the fit. I felt like it was very modern. It was moving forward for her in terms of fashion,” Fremar tells PEOPLE. “I feel like it all came together like I wanted it to.”

Witherspoon herself contributed some design elements, like the striking racerback, and loved the dress enough to share a sketch on Instagram (below). “You could see it in her face, that she just felt really good in it,” Fremar says. “It was a collaboration and it really came together. Everyone was happy.”

One more fun element Fremar shared: The shoes were custom Christian Louboutins dyed perfectly to match. “I had them dyed the color of her dress, because I didn’t want any break in color,” Fremar says. “I sent them [a swatch] and they made the shoes to match.” Now that’s service.

Confessions of a Celeb Stylist: Leslie Fremar Shares Exactly How to Make Your Wardrobe Summer-Perfect (Stress Free!)

Jun/26/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Summer Shopping All Courtesy

Leslie Fremar is Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. This week, she shares how to change over your wardrobe from winter to summer like a celeb — without spending a fortune or stressing out. Read on, and shop her top picks for the season below.

After what felt like the longest winter of all time, I still cannot believe summer is here. Even though I am so ready for the heat, I am still holding on to my winter clothes and just can’t seem to let go.

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but in N.Y.C., it feels like it goes straight from winter to summer. Spring and fall have disappeared overnight and it confuses my body — and my closet. So how do we make this transition from winter heavy clothes, coats and boots to summer dresses, sandals and bathing suits? I am going to try and break it down to help those that feel just as caught off-guard as I do.

First, move all of your heavy coats, sweaters and boots to the back of your closet. If you are lucky enough to have storage room, get them out altogether! Out of sight, out of mind. So even if it is your favorite shoe or boot, remove it and you will be happy to see it again in September. This is a great way to appreciate your clothes so when you “find” it again you will feel like you just went shopping. We all love that feeling.

Keep all the things that work year round. For example, your t-shirts, jeans, leggings, cardigan and accessories. Maybe your favorite undershirt will become your key piece, and that black cardigan can act as a light jacket on a cool summer night.

Confessions of a Celeb Stylist: Leslie Fremar Shares the Single Best Accessory to Have In Your Arsenal

Meet Leslie Fremar. She’s Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. For her latest, she explains how to translate Moore’s unbelievable, completely custom Met Gala look into an experience you can actually incorporate into your own wardrobe — no stylist needed.

After reading last week’s post, with Balenciaga staffers flying in from Paris and custom emerald cuffs being created just for one night, you’re probably thinking, “How could this possibly relate to my life or me getting ready for an event?”

The process is one that has been done for many years and it works. You start with an idea, or something that you love, an inspiration — and then you go look for something that’s not the exact same, but has the same feeling. For example: say you saw something extremely romantic and you can relate to that image and it reflects your personality and your style. Keep that image in mind when you’re shopping.

Also, when picking a dress be sure to pick something that fits your body type. If you have broad shoulders and have smaller hips I would suggest wearing something really fitted. If you have larger hips and are smaller on top, maybe find something that has a more defined waist, with a skirt that has more volume. These are little tricks that work to create illusions. I love magic!

Confessions of a Celeb Stylist: Leslie Fremar Takes Us Behind the Scenes of Julianne Moore's Met Gala Fitting

Please welcome the newest addition to our PEOPLE StyleWatch blog lineup, Leslie Fremar. She’s Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. For her inaugural blog post, she gives us all the backstage dish on Moore’s stunning emerald Met Gala look — and what it’s like to have every piece of your outfit made entirely custom for you.

A question I get asked all the time is “How do you get your clients ready for a major event?” I think the reason that people are so interested in this is because it feels very out of reach for most. Many women in their everyday life don’t have the need to dress that way, unless they are going to their own wedding. To this day I still find the process of getting ready for a major red carpet event extremely fascinating. Even though I do this for a living, I truly believe it can be applied to every woman getting ready for a special occasion.

The Met Gala was last night and it’s pretty much a “Who’s Who” of Hollywood, music and fashion all in one room. Everyone is trying to do something memorable, interesting, and fashionable. It’s fascinating how it all comes together and how many people are really involved in creating one look; you have the designers, the artist, the stylist, the jeweler, the hair and make-up people, manicurist, tailor, assistants.

Just to walk you through what it takes to get ready for The Met Gala: Last night I dressed Julianne Moore in Balenciaga. We started the process when Julianne accepted Alexander Wang‘s invitation to attend as his date to the event. Once the pairing between actor and designer is made, you can go ahead and start creating the look for the evening.

After going through images from the Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2013 show, Julianne and I had relayed our favorite looks from the season. Balenciaga then presented us with sketches, transforming some of the looks from the show into evening gowns. We ended up choosing a version of a cocktail dress, which he showed in black. They suggested making it long and in green. We loved it, we approved the sketch and they started making the dress.
