“He always wanted women to be the star of the look. He was never trying to take over and be the boss. The sketches that he did for me at the Oscars last year, every single one of them he sketched my face in. It wasn’t just a sketchof some dress —  it was how it would be on me, specifically. I was so lucky to get to work with him and to know him even just a little bit.”

-Jennifer Garner
