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.
This gorgeous thing was designed by Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz and they say that it's the "the largest wearable display in the world." I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know that I wanted to cry when I read that the dress went straight from the sewing room to the museum mannequin, without ever being worn by a real woman.
