Details On Underwood's Grammy Projection Dress
If you caught Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” performance on the Grammy Awards, I bet you could not have guessed that her Theia gown was created in only three days! The line’s creative director, Don O’Neill, and his team, worked around the clock to incorporate thousands of Swarovski crystals onto the bodice – according toPeople. The 4 foot 5 inch-wide projection dress was approved by Carrie, her stylist and the video team behind the special effects, which Carrie admits took a lot of hard work! “They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days – and we had a dress specially made. But yeah, they can do all that stuff and I know it took - I had a certain place to stand and they made sure it wasn’t going off around me. It took a lot of precision – I have a lot of great people.” It seems like Carrie certainly impressed O’Neill, as he tweeted that “there couldn’t be a more perfect opportunity to fuse light in a literal sense with one of [his] own gowns.” He added that Carrie was the first celebrity to wear a Theia dress four years ago when his company launched.
