Jung Ho Yeon’s embroidered dress and hair ornament took Louis Vuitton 600 hours to make

The outfit Jung Ho Yeon adorned at the 2022 Emmy Awards was a 600-hour handiwork. 

Model and actress Jung Ho Yeon, who is a major cast member of Netflix’s hit series “Squid Game”, wore a traditional Korean hair ornament on the red carpet of the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards – which is among the most prestigious awards in the American broadcasting industry. Here, the actress’ outfit, from top to toe, was none other than the work of the luxury brand, Louis Vuitton.

According to Louis Vuitton on September 14th, Jung Ho Yeon wore a long slit gown with multi-colored embroidery from this brand to attend the Emmy Awards ceremony, which was held on September 12th (local time). Jung Ho Yeon also drew attention for her short black hair, Louis Vuitton bag, and hair ornament – which takes inspiration from a traditional Korean hair ornament that’s worn by the royal female members.

As the global ambassador for Louis Vuitton, Jung Ho Yeon received a handmade embroidered silk dress that’s custom and designed exclusively for her. The dress is said to have taken 110 hours to make and an additional 490 hours to embroider. 

Meanwhile, Jung Ho Yeon’s hair accessory is specially made, having taken inspiration from a traditional Korean ornament, and resembled the petals of chrysanthemums. The accessory is also made using crystal, shell, and pearl, and took more than 30 hours to complete through the collaboration of various fields such as design, jewelry making, and plating.

On top of that, Jung Ho Yeon used shoes, high-quality jewelry, and a bag from Louis Vuitton, which is reminiscent of a lucky bag.

Jung Ho Yeon’s fashion at the Emmys, which stands out with various Korean elements, quickly caught the attention of people around the world. People, an American entertainment media, ranked the actress among the best-dressed actresses on the Emmys’ red carpet.

In particular, the model-actress wore a black silk dress adorned with silver crystals at the time, while boasting her hair, which was braided in a traditional Korean style, along with a hair accessory that also follows Korean tradition. 

“I asked Louis Vuitton for the accessory to add the details of Korean tradition”, the actress once revealed in an interview.
