Kendallâ€™s Met Gala Dress Was So Naked Cuz It Was Designed By a Lingerie Brand
Young celebrities never need an excuse to wear a naked dress on the red carpet, but Kendall Jenner has one anyway.
Her Met Gala dress was designed by luxe lingerie brand La Perla.

Even though the dress doesnâ€™t look remotely like it even tried to follow the Rei Kawakubo theme, the creative director of La Perla insists thatâ€™s not the case.
â€œI was inspired by Rei Kawakuboâ€™s concept of â€˜un-fabricâ€˜ and her ability to create movement out of seemingly immobile materials,â€ Julia explained. â€œSo, I created my own â€˜un-fabricâ€˜ by affixing stones to a single thread, creating a beautiful and liquid suspension that mirrored the qualities of a fine silk.â€
Whether or not you’re buying that explanation, the sheer amount of work that went into creating this naked dress is kind of astounding.
According to a press release dutifully sent out multiple times over the course of the night by La Perla, Kendall’s dress was made-up of 85,000 hand painted and placed crystals that took 26 people 160 hours to make.
Guess it’s true what they say: it takes a village to make a celeb look so good naked.
