Cute Circuit Dress Wows The Met Ball

Singer Katy Perry wore a Cute Circuit designed dress to the Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating the opening of the "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity" exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 3, 2010 in New York City.

The designers use the smallest full-color LEDs available. These are flat like paper and measure only 2mm in length. (The same as CC's Galaxy Dress on display in Chicago) The circuits are extra-thin and flexible and hand-embroidered on to a layer of silk to allow them to stretch. The LED bulbs consume only a small amount of electricity, and are powered by a number of small iPod batteries inside the skirt, with no danger of overheating. The dress reportedly faded at about 12:30am, at an afterparty, when Katy tweeted: "My lights went out. Parties Ovah." http://www.couturesnob.com/2010/05/katy-perry-in-cutecircuit-dress-at-met-gala.html
