Naomi Osaka and Emma Chamberlain made a distinguished appearance on the red carpet at the Met Gala in Louis Vuitton dresses. As we get consumed by their beauty, we can’t but admire the sophistication of their designs. However, no need to wonder as we’re going to tell you all that you need to know about the savoir-faire behind the making of these 2 artworks.  

After 290 hours of hand embroidery and thousands of different beads, this marvel saw the light with two diamond-shaped panels that came together to create a deep “V” décolleté, while golden chain straps decorated an otherwise nude back. Sparkling and highly distinguished, its frontal cut-out in silk organza and mini skirt ending in an asymmetric train make the perfect combination. As for its golden color, there’s really nothing to say to do it justice.

After taking a total of 293 hours to be achieved, this custom corseted dress in a colorful, graphic jacquard is contrasted by a floor length, ruffled cape which required 18 meters of leather satin. As for the silk taffeta, structured bustier, it turns into a split tulip skirt, completed with a large silk bow under the bust, inspired by an obi belt.
