Elizabeth Hurley reveals how she made sure her iconic Versace dress stayed in place

Elizabeth Hurley has revealed how she prevented one of her most memorable and daring ensembles from creating a wardrobe disaster. During her new film Strictly Confidential’s premiere, in an exclusive interview with People, the actress discussed the gold safety pin Versace dress she wore to the 1994 premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral.

She said, "Well, the odd thing about all couture garments is that, despite their daring appearance, they are so grounded in your body. So that was certainly the most costly dress I'd ever worn. I never even heard of Versace when I was offered that dress to wear; it was made in the most extraordinary way. Before I left my residence, I bent down and touched the tips of my feet and extended and squirmed, and absolutely nothing shifted because, as you don't need to know, nothing moves, but they're all held together somewhere. And that was my first experience of that."

The late Gianni Versace designed the bodycon dress, which featured a plunging neckline, a high-leg split, and big gold safety pins going down the side. It was initially worn on the runway by model Helena Christensen. Hurley claimed that wearing the classic gown 30 years ago was the first and only time she ever wore it. "The last time I wore it was that day in 1994. Then it went straight back to Versace the next day."

Hurley laughed that the item has subsequently done tours because it is still a very famous dress, implying that it has its own profession, and said, "It's a well-traveled dress." She then added and said, "It was just amazing to have something on that was so beautifully crafted. And while it appeared to be really adventurous, it was actually entirely safe. Like wearing a bathrobe, really."
