The British designer was nervous that, when Anna took her seat to watch the show, she might crush the delicate crystal flowers sewed to the dress. Anna assured her, "Mary, I'm a pro." The dress came back in perfect condition, causing Katrantzou to wonder if Anna deceptively squatted over her chair instead of perching on it. “Maybe she has amazing leg muscles and just pretended to sit,” Katrantzou speculated.
