The sparkling gown features an asymmetrical skirt and a chain-link back.

“I knew that I wanted something more open on top,” Chamberlain told PopSugar. “There were a few things I had in mind, but generally I just gave everybody control.”

Chamberlain paired the look with dangling gold hoop earrings and bold green eye shadow that added to the ’70s vibe of her ensemble.

“What I really love about the dress is the daintiness,” Chamberlain told the site. “I felt like it would fit my body in a way that was comfortable, but it also just gave me a certain feeling. “

“When I look at a piece of clothing, I focus less on a specific feature or element and more on the subconscious feeling it gives me,” she added.
