Gwen Stefani’s Emmy Dress looked light as a feather but weighed a ton

Gwen Stefani Emmys

Anyone catch the Emmy’s last night? If you stayed awake for the show, you will have noticed some unusual fashion on display. We had everything from puffy prom dresses to sleek revealing floor length gowns. It was truly a fashion smorgasbord, which I’m sure Joan Rivers will have fun dissecting tomorrow on E!. While I’ll be bringing you tidbits here and there, I thought I’d start with what has to be the most surprising outfit of the night, which belonged to Gwen Stefani.

For the 2014 Emmys, Gwen Stefani turned up on the red carpet wearing a silver number from Versace. The dress was perfectly fitted and most excellently chosen to reflect the personality of the wearer. In short, this Versace dress was a great match for Gwen Stefani. Surprisingly, however, the dress isn’t as easy to wear as Gwen Stefani made it look. She strolled in front of the cameras and then came up for an interview with E! where she announced to the world that her dress weighed something like 100 pounds. Turns out, Gwen Stefani’s custom Versace was actually made of Swarovski crystal mesh. Yes, Gwen Stefani could have taken on a member of Game of Thrones with sword in hand and destroyed. That’s like chain mail she’s wearing there. Incredible. And definitely a memorable moment for Emmys fashion
