'Moana' Star Auli'i Cravalho's Premiere Dress Pays Homage to Maori Culture - See All The Details!

If you’re like us, you were completely wowed by Auli’i Cravalho‘s dress at the premiere of Moana this week.

The voice of the title character, Auli’i looked so gorgeous in the gown from New Zealand designer Kiri Nathan — and even though it’s pretty and we all desperately want one in our closets — there’s much more meaning behind it.

Designer Kiri paid homage to Maori culture and tradition, incorporating Flower designs, and Kona patterns.

The dress, which mimics an ocean wave, also included Raranga weaving and Whakairo carving, and Pounamu jewelry, the most precious stone to the Maori.

Check out the fashion video below to appreciate this gorgeous gown and it’s full meaning!
