Anna Paquin tried on 100 dresses before settling on her Golden Globes gown.
The True Blood actress was so determined to find the perfect frock for Sunday's prestigious award show, she climbed into dozens of designs before settling on a glamorous Stella McCartney gown.
She said: "I tried on about a 100. I'm probably exaggerating."
The 27-year-old beauty also had a battle choosing her accessories, before deciding on vintage Stephen Russell jewellery and a handbag designed by British designer Alexander McQueen.
Anna took preparations for the glitzy showbiz event so seriously, her fiance Stephen Moyer was banished to the other side of the house while the actress' "team" got her ready.
He revealed to Us Weekly magazine: "I'm very good at leaving madam alone when it comes to these things. The team is working, and I'm upstairs by myself."
Although they work together on the vampire series, the couple loved attending the ceremony together because they don't spend much time together on a day-to-day basis.
Stephen, 40, added: "It is rare because at the moment, a lot of the stuff that we are doing is not together on the show. So in that respect, yes, we kind of have to introduce ourselves to each other once every week."
