Kitty O’Neal shows gowns she’s worn at 23 Academy Awards ceremonies for KFBK (1530 AM). She designed and made several herself. “This one may not be my favorite, but it’s one of the more interesting ones,” she said, unwrapping a creation of purple and green silk velvet and silk organdy. “It was made by (designer) Elizabeth Galindo,” O’Neal said. “She was making a dress for Sophia Loren out of this material and used the remnant to make this dress for me. I’m fortunate to probably be the only person on the planet to have a dress made out of the same fabric as a dress worn by Sophia Loren.”
