The decade's most triggering comedy
Superstar Julia Roberts celebrated being a homemaker with the black dress she wore at her first romantic comedy premiere in 20 years Wednesday in London.
The 54-year-old actress hit the premiere of her new film “Ticket to Paradise” wearing a black tuxedo jacket with a floor-length black dress that contained embroidered graffiti messages of “hope,” “love,” and “darling” all over it.
In addition, Roberts’ dress had the initials of her children’s names, Hazel, Phinnaeus, and Henry, along with their birth years embroidered throughout. The black number also contained a message to her husband, Daniel Moder, that showed the couple’s initials and the year the two tied the knot in 2002.
Roberts’ dress was designed by Alexander McQueen who tweeted out a photo of Roberts at the premiere of her first romantic comedy in 20 years.
“[Julia Roberts] wears a custom-made Chantilly lace dress and personalized crystal graffiti motifs hand-embroidered in silver bullion, metal thread, beads and sequins with a black cropped, wool silk tuxedo jacket to the #TicketToParadise film premiere in London,” the fashion house tweeted.

In April, the “Pretty Woman” star admitted a big part of the reason she stopped doing romantic comedy movies was because of her three children and the “pride” she has in being a “homemaker,” during her interview with the New York Times.
“Here’s the thing: If I’d thought something was good enough, I would have done it,” Roberts shared. “But I also had three kids in the last 18 years. That raises the bar even more because then it’s not only, ‘Is this material good?'”
“It’s also the math equation of my husband’s work schedule and the kids’ school schedule and summer vacation,” she aded. “It’s not just, ‘Oh, I think I want to do this.’ I have a sense of great pride in being home with my family and considering myself a homemaker.”

“As they get older, and particularly with my daughter, I do have a sense of responsibility for showing my children that I can be creative and that it’s meaningful to me — so meaningful that for periods of time I will choose to focus on that almost more than my family, which has been hard for me to come to terms with,” Roberts continued.
“Ticket to Paradise” is scheduled to hit theaters October 21, Fox News noted.
