You’ll catch us wearing this to brunch.

Leave it to Michael Cinco to make a gown that might as well come from an actual fairytale.

The Dubai-based designer, who’s originally from the Philippines, has a knack for creating gowns with a certain sense of drama and occasion.

His latest creation? Well, it features a 20-foot cape and took over 3,000 hours to make.

Here’s a short video showing it off from every angle:

How beautiful are those purple tones? Dreamy. We’re taking guesses on the number of crystals used in its embellishment.

The gown was created for a Swarovski exhibition, Cinco writes on Instagram. It’s embroidered with silk thread.

Cinco is also well-known for his bridal work. This gown, made for an unnamed Dubai bride, makes stunning use of crystal detailing.

We’d say that’s a pretty definite way to feel special on your wedding day.
