You Need to See Why Margot Robbie's Dress Took 680 Hours to Make
If you thought Margot Robbie's Oscars dress was simple, let the hardworking designers at Chanel correct you. The best actress nominee hit the red carpet in a white corseted Chanel Haute Couture dress custom-made by Karl Lagerfeld himself, and it required 550 hours of work, painstakingly performed by seven people, to complete. That's not all: the corsage and straps — which were three-dimensional bands of embroidered crystal camellias — took an additional 130 hours to assemble at Chanel's Paris atelier.
The reality of wearing such a bespoke dress wasn't lost on the I, Tonya star. "I can't believe I'm wearing a Haute Couture dress made for me by Karl Lagerfeld," she said of the layered georgette gown in a statement. "It's a fantasy. I feel like myself but still as glamorous as I've ever dreamed." Get a close-up look at the intricate detailing that made this dress one of the most labor-intensive designs of award season.
