Jennifer Hudson’s black and red Prabal Gurung gown on the red carpet arrivals was a little bit underwhelming. But, the songstress later on changed into a sparkly jumpsuit for her stage performance and we couldn’t help but be impressed with the glittering, glamorous outfit.

The sparkly number was specially made for Jennifer Hudson’s tribute performance for Prince on the CFDA stage and was designed by KaufmanFranco. The custom jumpsuit was decorated with approximately 1.7 million Swarovski crystals and took over 1,000 hours to finish! It was designed to look like one of Prince’s sequined costumes. According to Swarovski reps, a team of 13 people hand-crafted the piece, resulting in a very intricately designed opulent getup that will go down as one of the most memorable outfits in CFDA history.
This couture off-shoulder jumpsuit totally topped Rihanna’s 2014 CFDA naked dress, which featured about 230,000 Swarovski crystals. Plus, it looks much more glamorous too!
