For Katie Holmes, he created palm leaves that rest on her shoulders. They took 56 hours to print. The dress took 300 yards of tulle.

Nina Dobrev is wearing a 3D printed bustier made of four pieces that took 200 hours to print. It was then wet hand sanded and sprayed with a clear coat to make it look like glass. She said it took six people to get it on.

Julia Garner is wearing a 3D-printed brass plated vine headpiece with leaf and berry embellishments. It took over 22 hours to print. The headpiece is pretty but that dress is amazing! She looks like the world's sexiest octopus.

Thanks for sharing those.  They're all amazing, but perhaps the most amazing things are Nina Dobrev's sticks.  <jelly>

As much as I enjoy seeing stuff like this, the practical part of me wonders how anyone can sit down once they're in one of these dresses. Nina's is so short that her bare ass would be on the seat. Katie's has a huge train so does she have to sit on a bench so that she isn't wrinkling 300 yards of tulle? And Jourdan's dress is entirely made of 3D plastic, so is it even possible for her to sit? Does she just squat when she gets tired?

Remember when Justin made those 3D printed pieces for his final collection?

I know very little about The Gala.  Do they sit for presentations, or just wander around upright, looking fabulous and eating gourmet nibbles on a stick?

The dresses are impressive, though it's unclear to me how they relate to the Camp theme. 

Zac Posen definitely comes through with the technologically advanced, beautiful gowns. He also did this amazing light-up gown with a zillion LED lights incorporated in the fabric that Claire Danes wore to the Met Gala a few years ago.

Yeah, there were many looks that had no relation to the camp theme.  Some were just plain pedestrian imo.  Of the looks I've seen, I think my least favorite was on Gisele Bundchen.  Miley was nothing special.  Carlie was just okay.

I thought Katie Perry’s Candelabra dress was great and campy

This was her after party get-up:  (scroll right/4th pic) 

Time out:  Maybe that's scroll left, click right

Oh the perils of never using Tinder

Yes ! I even was asking myself if it was not a kind of "collaboration", because, if I remember correctly, Justin has specialized in that kind of thing... I'm not sure, to be sincere, but that's what I have in my head, lol !

This is his 5th marriage, he was on his second marriage when she was born

Most of his children are older than his newest wife. His kids were born in 1970, 1973, 1981, 1982, and 1986. His new wife Katherine was born in 1984. It must be weird when you are older than your step-mom. Anyway, the dress was beautiful. I liked that the slideshow included a picture of the inside of the dress so you could see all the boning and structure.

I scrolled further down the page to see more wedding dresses and there was another slideshow/article for the wedding of Jenna Rennert (Vogue's beauty editor). She wore four dresses to her wedding celebration, one of which was a Grecian inspired gown designed by PR alum Michael Costello!
