AceShowbiz - The dress Constance Wu wore to the "Crazy Rich Asians" premiere took approximately 765 hours to make.

Designed by Ralph and Russo, the actress wore a shimmery silver Bardot gown to the Los Angeles event on Tuesday, August 07, which was decorated with striking white tassels that fell over her arms and hips.

Following the bash, Constance, who plays Rachel Chu in the upcoming romantic comedy, took to Twitter to share just how much effort went into her outfit.

"For the @CrazyRichMovie premiere I got to wear a beautiful @ralphandrusso couture gown, 490 Hours of Embroidery, 90 Carats of Diamonds and I arrived in a @rollsroycecars Ghost. Not bad for a little ol' theatre kid from RVA (Richmond, Virginia)!! #CrazyRichAsians," she wrote.

According to Harper's Bazaar U.K., the dress required another 275 hours to complete once the 200,000 crystals and 90 carats of diamonds were embroidered.

The outfit was selected by stylist Micaela Erlanger, who explained that this specific gown was chosen for very particular reasons.

"In history, tassels have almost always been a symbol of power and prestige, not to mention they make for a glamorous detail," she told Vogue U.S. "This movie is so important for so many reasons, and I felt that Constance should look both powerful and glamorous."
