Renée Zellweger made a rare appearance on Sunday night — and she absolutely wowed fans while doing so.
The actress stunned in a custom Giorgio Armani Privé, pink, strapless, silk gown at the 2021 Academy Awards on Sunday night, as she presented the award for Actress in a Leading Role.
The elegant design was chosen by Zellweger's stylist, Petra Flannery, whole told People that the dress was "perfectly pink for this final celebration of the season."
"Giorgio Armani is always a dream to work with," she added. "Their classic but modern silhouettes complement Renée's exquisite figure."
Flannery revealed that the decision was inspired by a photoshoot that Zellweger had done years ago to promote her 2001 film, "Bridget Jones's Diary."
"The idea of this very unique peony colour came to us early in the process of awards season. Renée referenced a picture from a photoshoot we worked on years back for 'Bridget Jones's Diary.' In it, she happened to be wearing a dress in the same shade," she said. "Thus Armani brought this beautiful colour and crystal-embellished design to life."
The "Jerry McGuire" star also happened to be celebrating her 52nd birthday on Sunday, making it a doubly special occasion for her.
Fans were surprised to see Zellweger at the Oscars, let alone as arguably one of the best-dressed attendees, as she has been laying low amid the pandemic. They have since taken to social media to sing her praises.
"Flawless!" one person tweeted.
"We can all agree that Renée Zellweger is one of the most attractive women in Hollywood," another added.
"Only she can ever," echoed another.
"STUNNING, beautiful and elegant," someone else wrote.
"Yes, Renée Zellweger! Beautiful dress!" tweeted another.
"Sometimes we just need Renée Zellweger in the same hair and dress as always," one fan chimed in.
Following the annual awards ceremony, "Switched At Birth" actress Marlee Matlin shared a photo to Instagram, posing with Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern backstage.
"Beauties; I am humbled to be among these wonderful and talented Oscar winning women. Renee, Reese, Laura and me. @theacademy rocks," Matlin captioned the photo. Her post was immediately met with support from fans.
"This is my blonde actress dream team. So obsessed with this photo," one person commented.
"Renee looks so good!," wrote another. "Ageless queen! Y'all don't talk about her enough for me."
