The dress Andie wears to the Warren Advertising gala was designed around the 84-carat yellow diamond pendant which she wears at the gala. It was designed by fashion designer Dina Bar-El, not the film's costume designer Karen Patch. See more »

An Enjoyable as well as Decent, if Not Fabulous Ending
There are scenes in this movie that defy quality, professional honesty that work like gems. The home family scene was particularly intriguing in "How To Lose A Guy...," the quality of the photography went from professional quality feature film to a something not home video, but less sharp and informal. It is there the audience experiences an honest, genuine quality time the coming off the screen between Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. This movie was has a smart send up, funny lines and comical scenes about the dating behavior and quirky incidents that have befallen man and woman over time. While the ending wasn't quite as dazzling as it could have been, it ties itself up nicely. I was hoping for something more traditional, classy but as it was the ending was more personal and straight forward. A good date movie with bit more of a bite than the average man/woman collision/confrontation/competition movie.
