The second we spotted Lucy Boynton's Louis Vuitton gown at the Golden Globes, we were in love. That silver color! Those slightly-poofy sleeves! The subtle leg slit! All of it was stunning, and we didn't need to zoom in to realize this.

But, perhaps, we should have looked a little closer, because it turns out the real beauty lies in this dress' closeup.

Thankfully, the fashion house had our back, and provided the details that we totally missed the first time around. InStyle got an exclusive look at all the effort that went into creating this picture-perfect piece, helping us appreciate the design even more.

Boynton's Golden Globes dress was actually inspired by Louis Vuitton's Spring 2020 collection.

This particular look took over 400 hours to make.

From the pattern cutting to the alterations, it took 215 hours to put together the dress.

That number, of course, doesn't include 220 additional hours that were spent on the hand-embroidered details.

Boynton's dress was made up of 15 meters of velvet, which was interwoven with silk and Lurex yarn.

The details on the collar and the sleeves were silk-thread lace and guipure lace.

The same lace materials were also included along the shoulders and the back of the dress.

Something else we didn't notice at first glance? All the tiny glass beads that were embroidered into that lace.

Altogether, the piece included 8,000 tiny glass beads, which came in two different shades of silver.

The beads added some embellishment and texture to the design, and made it all the more breathtaking.

Sigh — this one was definitely a contender for the best look of the night.

Plus, it's proof that every look deserves a zoom — you might just discover details you didn't notice before!
