Martina Devlin: What Liz told me the night she wore that dress
IT was a moment which proved to be a game-changer. And Liz Hurley did it to show her celebrity boyfriend that he couldn't upstage her, even at the premiere of his hit film.
When she was decanted into a plunging black evening gown, it's unlikely that Liz anticipated how high it would catapult her through the VIP stratosphere. But she knew the waiting photographers would like a glimpse of flesh -- and that meant Hugh Grant sharing his spotlight with her.
Her suspicions about the photographers proved to be an understatement. When she stepped out of a limousine with him, they swivelled en masse. Hyperventilated en masse. Stampeded en masse. Snap-snap-snapped en masse.
