Rihanna’s stunning and extremely sheer CFDA Awards dress was carefully hand-embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals!

Designer Adam Selman shared a video on Instagram of his team creating the custom-made gown piece-by-piece … and it seems like it required a lot of patience.

Adam captioned the video, “Detail of my incredible team at work with @official_swarovski and @rupaulsdragrace led by the true queen @meetingsmagazine #glamazon.”

How long do you think it took to complete the dress?
