At the Oscars, a style icon in a Gap T-shirt.

“OMG. I was nominated for the Oscar for Casino and Quincy Jones (who was producing the Oscars and is a dear friend) and I were presenting two Oscars. I always give the winner his ballot that says that he won. This time I also accidentally and unknowingly gave the first winner the second unannounced ballot. I looked at Quincy and neither of us had the ballot or knew where it was. He ran in the back to Price Waterhouse to find out if they could look in the computer and I told a joke to the audience. This moment is when he came back out and we — relieved — told the audience who won and got a big laugh and it was actually pretty funny and one of those crazy live television moments. And I thought I was nervous about the Oscar. After that, it was all easy.”
