In her own words: "'I think sometimes in fashion it can get a little stuffy so I wanted to lighten up!"
Being one of only two laydees on Gizmodo, I feel justified in saying this dress is hot. Though not as hot as we'll be if global warming gets its way, unless more people pay attention to eco-friendly inventions like this.
I'm not sure if a dress composed of a few dozen dragon skin silicone tiles—each infused with an LED light—is the most comfortable or practical thing to wear, but it sure does create all kinds of possibilities.
24,000 full-color, super-thin LEDs, 4,000 Swarovski crystals, and enough iPod batteries to keep everything glowing for about an hour. This picture doesn't do the Galaxy Dress justice, but the video comes close.
