Sometimes, we see a celebrity wearing a dress and think "ooh, pretty," not immediately realizing all the work and time it took to create that specific look. But thankfully, Dior is here to tell us what's up. The fashion house revealed that the golden mini Charlize Theron wore while hosting her Africa Outreach Project Fundraiser didn't just happen overnight; two people spent 1,200 hours in total putting it together. And yes, there are photos.
