LED Dress is the Coolest Prom Outfit Ever

galaxydress_1

If I was a chick there would be no competition. Not only would I wear this dress to my prom, but every single one of my bridesmaids would be decked out in 24,000 LED bulbs.

Created by two designers in London for the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, the LED bulbs of the Galaxy Dress are diffused by layers of silk chiffon and a silk crinoline skirt. Embedded in the spaces between the LEDs are at least 4000 Swarovski crystals. No woman has yet worn this dress as it went right from the design floor to the museum and with a price tag that’s sure to be in the hundreds of thousands or even the millions, there’s little chance most women (or men, we don’t judge) will even have a chance.

  1. I live in Chicago, and I have the trippiest video of this dress going through various patterns with the LEDs on the dress. The picture actually does it no justice.

    Displayed along with the dress, actually, are “hug shirts,” which let you send a signal to another person wearing one to simulate the effect of a hug. 🙂

  2. Here’s what a potential buyer should do to maximize the value…..

    -Buy the dress as a freshman.
    -Go on Prom Date Depot and go to dozens of Proms each year for the rest of your life getting awards and acclaim at each one.
    -Have more friends than all your friends combined.
