Wednesday Addams has now evolved into Christina Ricci, and she stopped time in a stunning dress decked with Timex watches, created especially for her by the renowned designer Christian Siriano. Brand endorsement gave a very clever interpretation; this Christian Siriano Timex Watch Dress made its debut on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 3, 2012, and the word on the street is stylist Brad Goreski collaborated on the design with Mr. Siriano and Ms. Ricci herself to bring out unexpectedness in an iconic dress in a not so Lady-gaga way.
Inspired by Timex, the talented trio was given more than 1,000 watches to work their fashion vision. The result is a sexy, strapless mini-dress crafted in spiral pleated black silk taffeta and adorned with an appliqué of working Timex watches and jewel-toned Swarovski crystals. Oh my! Inspired by John Singer Sargent’s 1884 oil painting titled Portrait of Madame X, the bodice features a plunging V-neckline that also stands for vintage and extends to the back with a featured gold-toned zipper and more Timex timepieces encrusted with beautiful clusters of crystals and metal links. Our verdict? This is what ahead of its time fashion looks like!
