American actress Leyla Milani wore a see-through dress by Vietnamese designer Do Long to a party earlier this week.

The dress had a cut-out detail at the bust that was encrusted with 10,000 Swarovski crystals, and took a team of skilled craftsmen over 800 hours to complete.

She teamed the dress with jewelry, a diamond-studded watch and silver heels for the event on Monday.

Long said the silver-gray gown was inspired by glaciers. A shimmering effect was created by using silver gray on a white mesh background. Baby blue crystal stones are cleverly dotted, expressing the beauty of the sky and clouds reflected in the water.

The handmade dress took two weeks to make.

All of Long's employees had to work overtime to meet the deadline while maintaining the sophistication of every detail on the dress.

This is the second time he has designed an evening gown for Milani. She wore a white mermaid evening gown he created to her husband's birthday party in January.

Long said at the end of last year Milani directly messaged him and asked to buy a dress after seeing a photo of Do My Linh, the 2016 Miss Vietnam, on Instagram.

Milani is a model, television presenter, entrepreneur, and former actress, who has over 1.6 million followers on Instagram and is married to real estate mogul Manny Khoshbin. Both have an Iranian background.

Khoshbin is famous as the owner of a collection of supercars. According to Forbes, he is worth more than $100 million.
