Most Expensive Little Black Dresses
Let’s find out which are the most expensive little black dresses.
There is a fashion item that just seems to never go out of trend. It is something elegant, sexy and stylish at the same time. It is what best fits you in any situation, it’s what keeps you out of trouble when you don’t know what to wear and transforms any outfit from simple cu classy. You guessed, it’s the little black dress. Let’s see which were the most expensive.
Angelina Jolie’s tight –high split LBD – $10.000
At the 84th Annual Academy Awards in 2012, Jolie appeared wearing this dress and the effect was great. Although simple, this one revealed her leg, just enough for a sexy image. The dress is an Atelier Versace piece that was custom-made, so that it perfectly accentuated the best features of Angelina’s legs. Also, the asymmetrical neckline makes it a special item.
Rita Hayworth’s LBD in Gilda – $60.000
In 1946, Rita Hayworth played femme fatale Gilda in a film noir. Everyone remembers her sexy dance scene wearing this black dress and singing Put the Blame on Mame. Its designer’s name is Jean Louis and Gilda’s femme fatale attitude couldn’t be complete without this dress. A strapless dress, made from satin and accessorized with a pair of long gloves was all she needed
Princess Diana’s LTB – $74.000
This one comes with a story. In 1994, after the night of Prince Charles’s TV confession of liaising with Camilla Parker Bowles for years, Diana went out for a public event for Vanity Fair wearing this off-the-shoulder, mini LBD, paired with sexy high-heeled pumps. It looks like she was trying to send a message and I guess that’s why they call it “the revenge dress”.
Audrey Hepburn’s LBD – $923,187
The dress that she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s was designed by Givenchy and is as famous as the movie is. Audrey was a real fashion icon and this dress is probably the most popular BLD of all time. There were 3 pieces: one was given for charity auction, one is kept as part of Givenchy’s private collection and the third is making the rounds of museum around the world.
The 55-piece Diamond LBD – $3.5 million
In 2012, at a billionaire club event aboard the luxury boat J. Craft Torpedo in Monaco, designer Debbie Wingham introduced her 55 2-carat black diamonds gown. The dress is made from hand detailing, and weighs 13 kilograms.
But, we should not forget that all this couldn’t be possible if it wasn’t Coco Chanel’s idea and that is priceless. She first shared her vision in 1926 on the cover of Vogue, when she wore a simple black dress, calf-length, embellished with nothing but a few diagonal lines.
