Nina Dobrev Stuns Us in Her Eye-Popping Bustier Met Gala Dress
It’s that time of the year again, every first Monday of May; the famous Met Gala takes place. It’s been said that the event turnout on the red carpet is much more opulent than the Oscars or the Grammys. This year’s theme is Camp: Notes on Fashion, with the word ‘camp’ referring to the objectification of fashion mixed with drama and exaggeration. It’s not easy to get tickets to the famous gala, and Nina Dobrev is one of the chosen few who got to attend the famous/infamous Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.
Dobrev was one of the show stealers, because she definitely turned many heads with her Zac Posen costume called the Zac Posen x GE Additive x Photolabs bustier. If you admired the way this clear printed dress fits the actress’ body, it’s because it was made to be a custom-fitted assembly, composed of four different pieces!
The Fam actress shared that it took 200 hours to make that short dress of hers. It’s so exclusive that it isn’t even made in the United States, the printing and finish of Dobrev’s cute dress had to be done at Photolabs’ 3D Printing facility in Germany. We can just imagine how elaborate the production was, involving printing and finishing and not just sewing!
E! News was able to speak with Dobrev as she was preparing for the event with her makeup artist, Charlotte Tillbury. As it turns out, it was designer Zac Posen who contacted the actress and asked her to attend the annual gala wearing his creation. Clearly Posen felt Dobrev was the only one who would carry off the dress perfectly.
Posen’s vision for the dress was to incorporate his design with technology. Simply put, the famous designer created a dress that was not handmade, as couture usually is, but rather with the help of computers. It took more than 60 hours to print the mold that would be incorporated into the dress. But that’s not all; six people had to help Dobrev put the dress on! Posen made the right choice by picking the Vampire Diaries actress, because she wore it beautifully, with the grace of a ballet dancer.
