The Most Expensive Dress in the World is $17.7 Million
Move over Valentino and Prada, there's a new elaborate design that's suddenly the talk of the town with a price tag you won't believe.
British designer Debbie Wingham has created the world's most expensive dress valued at nearly $17.7 million and encrusted with (gasp!) red diamonds.
Only the rarest gems in the world.
That's right, the "Abaya" design features an oversized caftan silhouette (a nod to the designer's undying affection for Dubai) trimmed with red and black floral embellishments, dripping n opulent jewels including 50 two-carat black diamonds, 1,899 black-and-white pointer diamonds and 1,000 pointer rubies, all set in (what else?) 14-karat gold.
No big deal.
Wingham notes that her dress is more of a show piece, and will never be sold. "The red diamond is borrowed, and they are so rare I could never get another one, nor would the private collector ever want to sell, " she tells Today.com.
