The Oscars are the most prestigious award ceremonies ever! Everyone from elite superstars to starlets, to directors, come under one roof to celebrate the best films, the best performances of world cinema. It is also one of the grand occasions where the Hollywood film industry comes together wearing the finest and the most expensive designer wear. Here fashion and performances jostle for primacy, and the paparazzi cannot have enough of the star’s best fashion and faux pas moments.
One of the most favorite questions asked on the Oscar moment is,’ Who are you wearing?’ Attending the Oscars swathed in the most expensive wear cannot be cheap. Most actresses are willing to spend substantial money to turn in the most fashionable get-up ever. So, here a few actresses who turned up on the red carpet wearing some of the most ‘priceless garments’ you will hear about.
The 2011 Oscar red carpet was set aflame by Anne Hathaway, who wore one of the most expensive red gowns in gossamer silk faille. The lavish Valentino gown was a complete head-turner. This after Anne made eight outfit changes that night!
We are eager to know the clothing bill for her that night! It must have been mammoth. Well, the gown alone cost her $80,000. She teamed her gorgeous dress with a ‘Lucinda’ necklace from Tiffany & Co. No wonder she looked breathtaking that night and was a sight for sore eyes!
Not one to indulge in frills and fancies, Charlize knows how to stop the traffic with her uber stylish look. The 2013 Oscar look screamed elegance and expense in one single breath. It was a Christian Dior couture gown, all-white, with a price tag of $100,000.
The gorgeous custom-made, crystal-encrusted dress was smart, classic, and gorgeous. With that kind of gown, there is very little you could do wrong. But trust Charlize to own the look and not let the dress overwhelm her look.
Jessica Biel can do no wrong, both on the screen and off it, and the 2013 Oscar award red carpet, benefited from her gracious presence. She wore a $100,000 shimmering Chanel dress that made her shine in the true sense of the word. Many dubbed this dress dull and boring, but it made Biel stood tall in her classy avatar. The jewelry from Tiffany and Co helped enhance her look.
Diamonds took a backseat in the 2015 Oscars as pearls raced to the forefront. All thanks to Lupita Nyong’s gorgeous Calvin Klein gown, encrusted with beautiful pearls, read 6000 of them.
It set her back by $150,000 and was the toast of the red carpet that starry night. The dress made so much noise that it went missing from her hotel room. However, they found it eventually. But we shudder to think, what if someone stole it!
Jennifer Lawrence, or J-Law as she is famous as also created a stir at the 2013 Oscars. Her choice of the designer was a Dior Couture creation, yet again! She chose a blush-pink ballgown. However, the design made her look gorgeous. It made the climb up to the podium a difficult affair for Lawrence as she climbed to pick the Best Actress award. The dress cost her a whopping $4 million, and she lent it from the designer brand company as she was endorsing it.
Her fall on the stairs got the dress more footage than usual. Well, Jennifer is a complete sport had a quick laugh over it and moved on! Also, the fact that she received a standing ovation from the audience, made her forget the whole incident with a smile! And we still can’t get over the voluminous Dior gown that made her look like the modern-day Disney princess.
Nicole Kidman is one of the two entries whose’s dresses reached the million-dollar mark. She wore a $2 million worth dress by Christian Dior Haute Couture. The color was pretty unique and did not go the usual, red, black, and white route.
Instead, it was a gorgeous gold-green shade. Intricate embroidery was the dress’s highlight, with a demure high neck and a sassy slit at the right. The dress did not just steal the show that night but is one of the most iconic dresses worn on the red carpet.
So, here are a few of the most gorgeous and insanely expensive dresses you could hear about. Trust Hollywood to turn on the drama!
