Michelle Williams' Oscars dress took 800 hours to make

ICONINSIDER — Michelle Williams’ 2017 Oscars dress took “800 hours of labour” to create.
The 36-year-old actress stunned in a Louis Vuitton number at the Oscars earlier this year, and it has now been revealed that the beautiful black and cream gown was made by “a dozen dressmakers” and took a painstaking 800 hours to piece together.
An Instagram post uploaded by InStyle magazine shows the ‘Manchester By The Sea’ actress wearing her dress, and was captioned: “It took 800 hours of labor (by a dozen dressmakers!) to piece together Michelle Williams’s @LouisVuitton 2017 Oscars dress. Of course, Vuitton Artistic Director @nicolasghesquiere and her stylist, @KateYoung, were right by her side.

The dress – which included a combination of velvet and embroidered diamonds and pearls – was designed by the artistic director for Louis Vuitton Nicolas Ghesquiére, who said he was pleased with the final result as it looked “very couture”.
He told the publication: “We liked the combination of velvet, which I think of as a masculine fabric, mixed with the femininity of the tulle embroidered with crystals and pearls. It looks very couture, while at the same time it has a simplicity that is very Parisian.”
Whilst Michelle’s stylist Kate Young said the decision to wear minimal jewellery – which included a bracelet and earrings – came as they felt big diamond necklaces looked “ageing”.
She added: “Something about those big diamond necklaces looks ageing. I like the idea of a dress looking real, like there’s not some security guard waiting in the background to take it right back.”
