Behold the awesomeness of a Cinderella’s magical rags-turned-sparkly-ballgown in real life. This spectacular gown, illuminated by fiber optic fabric, was worn by actress Claire Danes last night at the 2016 Met Gala. The theme of this year’s event was ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.’

Designer Zac Posen beautifully combined technology and fashion to create a magnificent dress that looks like it was just magicked into existence by a fairy godmother. Only instead of magic, the glowing gown is powered by 30 mini battery packs sewn into its understructure.
