Elizabeth Hurley Looks Back at 'Surprising' Reaction to Her Safety-Pin Dress in 1994

Elizabeth Hurley is looking back at one of the most iconic fashion moments of her career.

The Austin Powers actress, who is now 57, wore a Versace dress with gold safety pins while attending the 1994 premiere of her then-boyfriend Hugh Grant‘s movie Four Weddings and a Funeral.

The dress became a controversial red carpet moment at the time, though it would likely be considered a rather tame dress in 2022 standards.

In a new interview, Elizabeth looked back at that moment.

“Hugh and I lived together in a tiny little one-bedroom flat without a full-length mirror, so I hadn’t even seen the [full] dress until I saw it on the papers the next day,” she said on the Just for Variety with Marc Malkin podcast. “But of course, people also didn’t know that his movie was going to be a sensation. We were completely and utterly clueless. So the next day when the papers went demented, both about the movie and, bizarrely, about my dress, it was very surprising to both of us. But, of course, we’re both very grateful for both those things happening.”

Elizabeth recently revealed that one of her former co-stars was a “nightmare” to work with.
