When Catherine O'Hara accepted her 2021 Golden Globe award for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, we couldn't help but clap in front of our TV. Not only was she hilarious playing Moira Rose on Schitt's Creek, but her outfit was also a tribute to the character, who will forever live on in our hearts, despite the show ending.

"It's a nice homage to Moira [Rose]," her stylist Andrew Gelwicks told InStyle, refering to the black and white suit which featured a rose floral print — a nod to show's famous family. "It's also just a really more delicate side of Catherine, but still, hopefully, with an unexpected, a little bit edgy, and thoughtful approach to fashion. It's playful, but a little bit more delicate, I think."

Once Gelwicks spotted the pre-existing print, he knew he needed to use it for Catherine's custom look, which he planned to make more toned down due to the virtual event. Even so, it wasn't easy to put together, considering he couldn't be with O'Hara in person due to the ongoing pandemic.

"It was all virtual, which, if you ask any stylist, is kind of like the worst nightmare, but I think what we chose was very manageable," Gelwicks said. "It [came together in] about a week and a half, two weeks where normally, it'd be closer to a month. But, it's been a year, and I think most designers and people have figured out a way to work within the restrictions."

Between the print, O'Hara's cocktail, and a sing-songy acceptance speech, we definitely felt the Moira vibes, and appreciated this fun nod, which will no doubt go down in fashion history.
