There’s a reason why a Balmain dress is not for the faint of heart or wallet for that matter. I’m going through the photos I took at the fall winter 2011 Balmain show and this dress, worn by Anja Rubik, caught my eye. I can’t get over the amount of work involved! Just look at the sheer number of sequins, beads, crystals and embellishments.
