Pop star Miley Cyrus wore a dress made with 14,000 gold safety pins on the 2024 Grammys red carpet on Sunday.
The dress of the “Flowers” and “Used to Be Young” singer was a custom creation by designer John Galliano for the French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela.
Maison Margiela however said the house took 675 hours of “meticulous work” to make the dress, reports CNN.
The singer-songwriter went on to snag her first-ever Grammy awards.
Her hair in a Farrah Fawcett-style bouffant, Miley Cyrus was dressed in a custom look from the Maison Margiela.
Several social media users pointed out the similarity between Cyrus’ revealing gown and pieces in the designer’s Fall 1997 ready-to-wear collection.
She completed her red carpet look with a pair of yellow tabis. The split-toe shoes have become a cult favourite among Margiela fans.
Fellow makeup artist James Kaliardos said in an Instagram post that he wanted Cyrus to “glow like a golden goddess, sublime, with sheer skin, glowy finish, a touchable beauty.”
Meanwhile, hair stylist Bob Recine sculpted the pop star’s tresses. Fashioning dramatic curls from Cyrus’ highlight-streaked brown hair, Recine made each strand appear to have a life of its own.
According to a press statement from haircare brand Nexxus, Recine said this last year he featured Miley’s wet look for hair. This year, they wanted something dry and bigger… fuller hair, but sexy and tousled and touchable.
The gold safety pin creation was one of five outfit changes for Cyrus at the 66th GRAMMY Awards.
During her GRAMMY acceptance speech, Cyrus joked that she forgot to wear underwear.
She, however, in a later Instagram post, revealed that she was joking and that she wore matching custom underwear from Gucci.
