Wearing La Perla Haute Couture Collection designed by Creative Director Julia Haart, the dress was made with 85,000 crystals and was put together by 60 people in five different cities. And Kendall crushed it:

The nearly-naked dress kind of harkens back to a certain *other* nearly-naked dress, right? (Think: Rose McGowan at the 1998 VMAs.) Fashion—it's all circular.
