The date, for one thing, marks three festive occasions. 'It’s Tom’s birthday, he’s going to be 50, it’s our wedding, and it’s New Year’s Eve.'
For another: 'I’m going to do three different dresses! For my big night, why not have three different dresses?'
She elaborated: 'I’m gonna work and collaborate and design one myself, because I love style and fashion. I’ve styled myself for the last eight years of the show.'
