ONE-STOP FROCK: Apparently, Julia Roberts was the first to lay eyes on the late Seventies Yves Saint Laurent long-sleeve, short black dress she donned for Sunday’s Golden Globes. During one of her jaunts to Frock NYC, a NoLIta boutique the Academy Award-winning actress has dropped into before, the Manhattanite tried it on along with a few other pieces. Her stylist later purchased her finds, according to owner Evan Ross, who was completely in the dark about the prospect of having a red-carpet moment. “I was at home having a quiet night after a weeklong buying trip. When she walked in, I thought, ‘Wait a minute. That’s our dress,’” he said.

Instead of going the loaner route, as is the calling card of choice with many red-carpet walkers, Roberts plunked down some of her cold hard cash. Ross couldn’t give an exact price but said other dresses of that ilk range from $800 to $1,200. What a steal? “Totally,” he said.
