Stars such as Brandi Carlile, Katie Couric, Sheryl Crow and more walked the red carpet.

At the main event, Clooney’s “Ticket to Paradise” Julia Roberts took the tribute to the star to the next level by wearing a dress printed with images of longtime friend, Page Six Style reported.

The ballgown featured gold frames around snaps of Clooney, 61, throughout the years — including pics of the star sporting scrubs for his role on “ER” in the early ’90s and one as the handyman on the classic sitcom “The Facts of Life.”
