Nicole Scherzinger, formerly of Pussycat Dolls & X-Factor fame, stepped out last night in London wearing a Twitter Dress, an electronic-powered frock that displayed real tweets in real time. Containing 2,000 LED lights and 3,000 Swarovski crystals, the dress was created by fashion technology company CuteCircuit, whose clothes are embedded with lights and rechargeable via USB. (They’re the women who were also responsible for the Katy Perry’s Met Gala dress from 2010.)
The Twitter Dress was commissioned by EE, the U.K.’s first 4G mobile network, for its big launch party, so the tweets scrolling across Nicole’s dress were those tweeted by or at the handle @EE and the hashtag #tweetthedress. Talk about social media’s take on fashion… Would you rock this look?
