The reality star managed to get famous French designer Thierry Mugler out of retirement and get him to create an iconic look, which we are sure will go down in history as one her most iconic looks. She looked like she had just stepped out of the pool, and by the pool, we mean one made of crystals. She looked dripping wet and smoking hot at the same time. The latex corseted dress took eight months to make and the craftsmanship and vision of Mugler is awe-inspiring.
