Amanda Seyfried and her stylist had a fashion nightmare leading up to the Golden Globes on Sunday as her custom gown got lost en route to Georgia.

The Mamma Mia! star, who was nominated for best supporting actress for Mank, wore a custom coral Oscar de la Renta gown with flower appliques to appear via livestream for the ceremony, which was largely virtual due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In an interview with People, her stylist Elizabeth Stewart revealed they had a fashion crisis and the stunning outfit arrived only in the "nick of time" after being misplaced by couriers as it made its way from the label's New York City studios to Seyfried's location in Savannah, Georgia.

"The dress was lost for an entire 36 hours on its way to Savannah," Stewart shared.

They were only able to retrieve the gown with the help of a dedicated Oscar de la Renta employee, who went out of their way to track the package down.

"Someone from Oscar de la Renta drove hours to the 24-hour FedEx hub in Newark, New Jersey and stayed there until they found the dress in the nick of time!" Stewart exclaimed.

Opening up about how the dress came together, the celebrity stylist explained she was working with the 35-year-old on the day she was nominated and they got the brand's co-creative director to send over some ideas.

"Fernando Garcia from Oscar de la Renta sent over sketches and swatches based on Amanda's colour direction," the stylist explained. "We literally sat on the floor and she made her choice and the dress came to life."

Seyfried lost out on the prize to Jodie Foster for The Mauritanian.
