With a beautiful little black dress with integrated electro luminescence lighting, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas was more radiant than ever, 22 May 2011 at the Billboard Awards night in Las Vegas. The dress, designed by Rogier van der Heide and Nancy Tilbury, demonstrates a unique integration of fashion and technology and marks the start of a close collaboration between Rogier’s team at Philips and the Black Eyed Peas.
