A silicon masterpiece, the dress was also made of silk organza, had an assortment of dangling crystals, and required the star to be laced into an extreme Mr. Pearl corset. But apparently even the teeniest of corsets was no match for Kardashian's determination.

Ah, the things we do for fashion. Watch her entire getting ready video, below.
