Julianne Moore was once cut out of a Balenciaga gown

Julianne Moore’s stylist Leslie Fremar once helped cut her out of a Balenciaga dress.

The stunning redhead was on hand to present Leslie with the Stylist of the Year gong at the 2016 InStyle Awards on Monday (24Oct16).

Stars like Nicole Kidman, Isla Fisher and Priyanka Chopra, who won the Breakthrough Style Star award, were in the audience as Julianne praised her stylist and friend.

“She’s the kind of person who will put you in a Balenciaga dress for the (Golden) Globes, but who will also get up at 2 o’clock in the morning, after the night is finished, when she is pregnant, and you can’t get out of the dress, to cut you out of it. What I have in Leslie is a friend,” Julianne told the laughing crowd.

“Because of Leslie, I always feel confident, and cool, and myself. She has been my partner and collaborator, my cheerleader and supporter, the first to text me to tell me that I look beautiful.”

Jon Hamm, Shailene Woodley and Tom Ford were also in attendance, as was Usher who presented Priyanka with her gong.

“Truly if style is more than just cool clothing and really about inner and outer beauty, passion, and compassion, Priyanka is the personified, iconic, remarkable, incredible, style icon. I’m honored to present this year’s Breakthrough Style Star and a good friend of mine, Priyanka Chopra,” he said as Baywatch actress Priyanka, wearing Haider Ackermann, took to the stage.

“Thank you very much, InStyle, for that amazing cover, and for this award. I truly believe that style is a representation of your own personality and trying to find clothes that make you feel like you are what you wear, and that’s what I’ve always tried to do with my clothes,” the Indian star beamed.

She went on to thank all the “designers and the stylists” she’s worked with over the years.
