The former Vampire Diaries star dished to E! News about her unique look for last night’s Camp: Notes on Fashion-themed gala, revealing that her dress was made through a collaboration with Zac Posen, GE Additive, and Protolabs and was printed at Protolabs’ 3D printing facility in Germany.
When speaking about her look, Nina revealed that Zac had a strong vision for her look and played a big role in its design.
“He had partnered with this company that…he designed it, so it’s designed by a man but made by technology, by a robot essentially,” she said. “It was printed, over 60 or so hours it took to print the mold and then the dress itself is a whole separate…it took about six to eight weeks from the original fitting until now.”
“And it takes a team of six people to put it on,” Nina said. “We’ve had a lot of fittings.”
Zac also commented on the dress, saying: “I think it’s fantastic. Nina was the perfect person to wear this dress.”
