Nina Dobrev stole the show at the 2019 Met Gala!

The Fam actress turned heads as she walked the star-studded pink carpet alongside Zac Posen at the fashion event, held in New York City on the first Monday in May. For this year's Met Gala, Dobrev wore a custom Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs bustier. The bustier is a clear printed dress with a four-piece assembly for custom fit. The interior was designed to match the star's 3D recreation.

The printing and finish of Dobrev's bustier took over 200 hours and was printed at Protolabs' 3D printing facility in Germany.

Prior to hitting the pink carpet with Posen, E! News caught up with Dobrev as she prepared for her Met Gala moment with makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, who called the event "magical."

Talking about how the collaboration came about, Dobrev told E! News that Posen called and invited her to attend the event, saying he had a "very specific vision" for the look.

"He had partnered with this company that...he designed it, so it's designed by a man but made by technology, by a robot essentially," Dobrev explained. "It was printed, over 60 or so hours it took to print the mold and then the dress itself is a whole took about six to eight weeks from the original fitting until now."

"And it takes a team of six people to put it on," Dobrev added. "We've had a lot of fittings."

Dobrev was later joined by Posen, who dished on the Met Gala look.

"I think it's fantastic," Posen said of the design, using the 3D printing. "Nina was the perfect person to wear this dress."
