The No Reservations star said that because of Thierry's meticulous structuring and cut, that: "as feminine as this dress is, there's something very strong and acutely cut." She continued to say it was: "everything I love in a dress for this event, at that time, in France. It was pretty amazing."

The heartfelt throwback had an extra layer of sadness as Catherine revealed she unfortunately doesn't have the dress anymore. She explained that she was honored to have debuted the dress on the red carpet, but it was a sample meant to be shown in a subsequent fashion show.
