You may or may not recall that at the 1995 edition of the Oscars, costume designer Lizzy Gardiner crafted and wore a dress made entirely of expired American Express Gold Cards. Well, Alexander Wang just gave her a cheeky nod in a big way: He designed a dress using more than 500 AmEx cards for this year’s CFDA Awards.
His muse, model Anna Ewers, wore the creation, a decidedly more demure (and stylish) take on the idea. Ewers’s version is a chain-like mini studded throughout with the repurposed cards and paired with sky high flatform boots from his fall/winter 2015 collection. The resulting look, which showed off the model’s fit physique, is a DIY dream.
