There are certain artists out there who've got that ability to transport us straight back to that age when everything seemed like it was touched by magic. Whether it's Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Room or Jeffrey Koons' "balloon" sculptures, we appreciate any time we get to shed our jaded, seen-it-all adult skin for pure, childlike awe. And now, it's time to add another piece of art to that list of wizards: Armani.

Tucked between a parade of smart suits and red carpet-destined gowns during yesterday's Armani Prive couture show was this one particular dress that seemed like it was woven from the night sky. Made in the same inky-black as the background and runway, the dress is covered in a swath of
pom poms stars/fireflies/fairy dust that hovered around the model as she came down the runway. Sure, the front-view shots might reveal that the stars might have been held in place by a black tulle veil (click through for that shot, if you're feeling like being a killjoy), but for just a moment this morning, we felt pretty awesome visualizing Giorgio orchestrating a court of pixies in his atelier.
And if Hippolyta's not attending this year's Met Ball, we can think of a few starlets worthy of these starlets. Leave your suggestions for deserving queens, please — see you in the comments!

Yeah, yeah, now you know. Now, click back to bask in the magic again, spoilsport!
