Heather Tom explains dress change at Emmys
In the weeks leading up to the Emmys, there was a lot of hype about Heather Tom (Katie, B&B) wearing an original design by last season's PROJECT RUNWAY contestant Jack Mackenroth. Tom sported his teal gown on the red carpet, then changed into a black Nina Ricci number for the awards ceremony telecast in which she also presented. Buzz immediately started circulating that the actress was unhappy with Mackenroth's creation and opted for a backup but Tom insists that couldn't be further from the truth. "Jack's dress is absolutely gorgeous," she explains. "But we were are also being served dinner right after the Emmy ceremony and I didn't want to risk spilling anything on it. Since the dress was being auctioned off for charity, I didn't want to take any chances of devaluing the whole purpose of having Jack create it in the first place." Proceeds from the sale will benefit three charities: amfAR (the American Foundation for AIDS Research), National Association of People with AIDS, and the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.
