Fashion statement

Black Eyed Peas star Fergie lit up the room at the recent Billboard Music Awards.

The singer wore a dynamic luminous dress that was designed by Philips Lighting in collaboration with stylist B. Akerlund.

The black dress was made using a figure-hugging fabric integrated with lighting to shape the singer’s curves and move with the music.

Speaking about the dress, Rogier van der Heide, chief design officer for Philips said: “When Fergie challenged us to create something new for her, we wanted to design something that could bring an additional dimension to their audience and help showcase how light can further enhance experiences. What is remarkable with this dress is the way the lighting is integrated with the fabric and works in tandem with the beat of the music.”
