ICYMI: Alexander Wang Made a Dress Out of 500 Credit Cards

Meghan Blalock

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 last night'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 caged mini studded throughout with the repurposed cards and paired with Wang's giant creeper boots from his F/W 15 collection.
