Oscar’s most glamorous dress is underestimated. Regina King is giving a lot of vibes in her recent couture pieces. Her dress from a distance looked like just another dress. A lot of people asked what the fuss is about. We learned from an inside source what it took to bring this exceptional piece to life. The amount of time, the accessories, the labor, and the cost of the dress. Only a few people in the world can afford to own this dress. It is as expensive as buying a house or taking an expensive vacation abroad. One may ask, “All that for a dress?” and the answer is “Yes”. Here is a little cruise on what it took to make this year Oscar’s most glamorous dress.
Regina King’s dress
She literally broke the internet with this Louis Vuitton custom-made piece and she is not to blame. What do you expect from a dress that was made with 62,000 sequins, 3900 crystals, 4,500 in darker tones, 80 meters of chain stitching, and 140 hours of work? It is worthy of all the accolades. This is the kind of dress that is kept in museums for history or auctioned for millions in years to come. Have you ever seen a dress that appreciates in value just like a house? This dress is one.
The Creative Director of the designer label, Nicolas Ghesquière said he wanted something that will cheer people and give them something to talk about after all the stress of the past year.
In her Instagram page, she said she looked like a whole statue while thanking her crew members as follows,
