Lovato wore a strapless couture gown that was painstakingly hand-stitched by Prabal Gurung, a bespoke creation. Over 500 hand-cut mirrored mylar flowers with jeweled centers graced the white silk-lamé fabric of the gown, which was encrusted with sequins and glass crystals.

The use of crisp, glittering embellishments in Gurung’s design was a tribute to the idea of keeping something classic. The gown was a representation of strength and perseverance, made with sturdy components rather than fragile ones. Lovato felt a connection to the garment’s ambivalence and spoke about how it reflected her own multi-faceted nature.
