According to reports, Years & Years front man Olly Alexander wears 86,000 Swarovski crystals in the new music video for “Meteorite,” the band’s first new material in a year.
Designed by Lara Jensen, Alexander glitters in his high-end haute couture as he plays to the 360 camera work among dancers.
Speaking to NME, Alexander shared that the crystal costume was a salute to pop goddesses Britney Spears and Beyoncé. “It’s an honour to follow in the footsteps of some of my heroes and be decked out in tens of thousands of dazzling crystals!”
