However, in a new video she shared, the star revealed that it took a lot of work even getting the larger-than-life outfit to the event.

The skirt, in fact, proved to be so large that it took up several seats on its own, although Gwen looked just as chipper as ever, happily smiling for the camera and excited to get to the carpet.

"Ever needed extra seats just for your dress?" she captioned her candid clip, and fans rushed to tell her that she looked beautiful all the same.

However, it appears that getting out of her elaborate creation was also a team effort and no small feat.
