Julia’s Acceptance Speech from the InStyle Awards

On Monday, InStyle honored Julia Roberts with the 2018 Style Icon Award. But the actor didn’t take all the credit when she went up on stage. Of course, she thanked her stylist, her makeup artist, and her team for putting together her unforgettable looks, but one person, in particular, got a sweet shoutout: Roberts thanked her 22-year-old self for having the guts to wear whatever she wanted.

Roberts gave the customary speech when she accepted, noting that she never ever goes shopping, but manages to look great at every event thanks to her team — including stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who was also being honored tonight.
