The dress Constance Wu wore to the Crazy Rich Asians premiere took approximately 765 hours to make.

Designed by Ralph and Russo, the actress wore a shimmery silver Bardot gown to the Los Angeles event on Tuesday (07Aug18), which was decorated with striking white tassels that fell over her arms and hips.

Following the bash, Constance, who plays Rachel Chu in the upcoming romantic comedy, took to Twitter to share just how much effort went into her outfit.

“For the @CrazyRichMovie premiere I got to wear a beautiful @ralphandrusso couture gown, 490 Hours of Embroidery, 90 Carats of Diamonds and I arrived in a @rollsroycecars Ghost. Not bad for a little ol’ theatre kid from RVA (Richmond, Virginia)!! #CrazyRichAsians,” she wrote.

According to Harper’s Bazaar U.K., the dress required another 275 hours to complete once the 200,000 crystals and 90 carats of diamonds were embroidered.

The outfit was selected by stylist Micaela Erlanger, who explained that this specific gown was chosen for very particular reasons.

“In history, tassels have almost always been a symbol of power and prestige, not to mention they make for a glamorous detail,” she told Vogue U.S. “This movie is so important for so many reasons, and I felt that Constance should look both powerful and glamorous.”

The 36-year-old’s co-stars looked equally glamorous on the night, with Ocean’s 8 star Awkwafina sporting a ladylike satin pink Reem Acra gown featuring long sleeves and a full skirt, while Constance Lau opted to wear a dress made by Singaporean brand Time Taken to Make a Dress. The intricate outfit featured fringing, embroidery and cut-out detailing as the colour gradually changed from angelic white to a deep red in an ombre-style skirt.

And like Constance, British actress Gemma Chan went for full-on sparkle in a dazzling gold and silver sequin number designed by Oscar de la Renta.

Asking Kim Jones to dress him for his wedding was a no-brainer for Pusha T.

The rapper, real name Terrence Thornton, wed his long-time partner Virginia Williams in an opulent ceremony on Saturday (21Jul18), surrounded by their famous friends including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams, who acted as best man.

While Virginia wowed in a bridal gown by Marchesa, the label co-helmed by disgraced movie executive Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife Georgina Chapman, Pusha also upped the style stakes in a white Dior dinner jacket and black tuxedo pants designed by Kim.

“Pusha reached out to me about his wedding suit in such a nice way that it was a pleasure for me to make it for him,” Kim smiled to Vogue. “He knew exactly what he was looking for.”

“I’ve been a fan of Dior for a while now,” Pusha added. “And with Kim recently appointed as artistic director, it was a no-brainer! I wanted to keep it classic, but play on the time and location of the wedding so I paired my black tuxedo pants with an off-white jacket.”

Kim joined Dior Homme in March, after more than six years as the style director of Louis Vuitton’s ready-to-wear menswear collections.

The English designer also outfitted Pusha’s groomsmen, while the bridesmaids wore white dresses by Katie May collection. And on Sunday the Daytona rapper thanked him on his Instagram writing: “You’ve been so helpful, hands-on, and accommodating…thank you @mrkimjones for taking care of me and team.”

After the ceremony, held at The Cavalier Hotel in the couple’s hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia changed out of her dreamy floral embroidered Marchesa dress into a minimalistic strapless Reem Acra gown.

“One is me coming out my box and the other says ‘Virginia,’” she told Brides magazine of her two dresses.

Uploading a picture of the happy couple on Instagram, a delighted Pharrell wrote: “Congrats you guys, God is the greatest, NOW MAKE THAT BABY!”

Kaley Cuoco wanted a very “effortless” make-up look for her wedding day.

The Big Bang Theory actress married equestrian Karl Cook in an intimate ceremony held at a horse stable near San Diego, California on Saturday (30Jun18), with Kaley walking down the aisle in a stunning white lace dress with matching cape from Reem Acra.

When it came to her cosmetics, make-up artist Jamie Greenberg has shared that she simply wanted to highlight her client’s features.

“The inspiration behind Kaley’s look was effortless and natural beauty,” she told People.com. “The Reem Acra dress speaks for itself. We wanted a natural true Kaley to shine through with this look.”

For Kaley’s make-up, Jamie first applied a layer of Cover FX’s Blurring Primer as a base and then added a layer of the brand’s Power Play Foundation.

She then dabbed on a little concealer under her eyes, shimmery eyeshadow to her lids and a dusting of yellow and rose gold coloured highlighter to the tops of her cheeks before setting the look with Cover FX’s Mattifying Setting Spray.

To finish, Jamie curled Kaley’s eyelashes and then applied a layer of black mascara before proceeding to fill in her brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Liner in Taupe. The beauty expert, who also works with Elisabeth Moss and Krysten Ritter, proceeded to add a swipe of Burt’s Bees Matte Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands to her pout.

Meanwhile, hairstylist Christine Symonds was in charge of Kaley’s hairstyle and opted to give her a chic chignon.

Christine applied Kerastase’s Nectar Thermique and Mousse Bouffante to the locks before blow drying and then curled the hair with a 1-inch curling iron. She then pulled the hair into a low ponytail and twisted it into a loose knot which was topped off with a sparkly floral comb.

When Kaley changed into a white lace Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit for the reception, Christine was on hand once again, and switched the blonde star’s hair into a high ponytail.
