Berenice Bejo’s Oscars 2012 dress wasn’t a last-minute decision. The Best Supporting Actress nominee had her mint Elie Saab design all lined up by the Academy Awards nominees luncheon several weeks ago. “It’s done!” she told InStyle.com of picking her look. And her process was fairly harmless. “It’s not such a big deal to me,” she said. “It’s just getting into a nice dress to honor the situation. You’re not doing to do jeans. You’re going to wash your hair and brush your teeth. I just want to look pretty and good.” As for how she chose the gown, there was one very important factor going into her decision. “The most important [thing] for me would be just that Michel Hazanavicius, who is my husband, likes me in the dress. That’s it.” (Hazanavicius is the director of The Artist, the movie in which Bejo stars.) Now we know her dress tonight was husband-approved!
