The Five Most Expensive Dresses of All-Time

Dresses have been worn by a wide range of women with a wide range of backgrounds for a wide range of occasions. As a result, while some dresses are rather moderate in cost, other dresses have been much more expensive because of the effort as well as other resources poured into them. Even now, this remains true, as shown by the high sums that some dresses have managed to fetch. Here are five of the most expensive dresses that can be found out there:

5. Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress – $388,000

Perhaps unsurprisingly, royals have worn some of the most expensive dresses to have ever been created on this planet. One excellent example is the dress that Kate Middleton wore to her wedding with Prince William of the British royal family, which was valued at more than $388,000. With that said, while the dress might have been expensive, it was a rather tasteful blending of both traditional and modern designs, which is not something that can be said for all of the expensive dresses that can be found out there.

4. Danasha Gown – $1.5 Million

Anyone can come up with a more expensive dress by adding more and more expensive materials to it. For example, if normal silk isn’t expensive enough, there is always cloth of gold, vucana wool, as well as the highest grades of silk that can be found out there. Instead, the problem is incorporating expensive materials without overdoing it in the process, which is something that comes up on a regular basis. Regardless, the Danasha Gown that was shown off at the Miami International Fashion Week in 2010 was an interesting attempt to make use of the best materials without making it look tasteless in the process. As a result, even though it came with a cost of $1.5 million, the result is magnificent without showing signs of excessive ostentation.

3. Peacock Wedding Dress – $1.5 Million

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the next dress on this list, which cost around $1.5 million as well. In short, the peacock has been a creature of fascination for some time, as shown by its status as a symbol of royalty as well as a symbol of immortality. As a result, it is natural that a wide range of people have used peacock feathers for ornamental purposes, whether wearing them in hats and headdresses or making use of them in some other manner. Unfortunately, the Peacock Wedding Dress might have gone too far, seeing as how it boasts a trailing skirt made out of hundreds and hundreds of peacock feathers. The result is certainly interesting from a visual interesting, but it is not exactly what anyone would called sensible even without considering the fact that some cultures consider peacock feathers to be bad luck at weddings.

2. White Gold Diamond Dress – $8.5 Million

Yumi Katsura is a legendary name in Japanese fashion. In short, she studied haute couture in Paris when she was still young. After which, she went home to Japan where she played a pivotal role in popularizing western-style wedding dresses in her homeland over the course of her five-decade-long career. Nowadays, Yumi Katsura is an international name whose wares are shown not just in Japan but also in other countries such as Britain, France, and the United States. The White Gold Diamond Dress is the most expensive of her creations, so much so that it costs something along the lines of $8.5 million. Given its name, it should come as no surprise to learn that it incorporates not just a diamond but also one thousand pearls, which contribute a fair amount to its overall price tag.

1. Nightingale of Kuala Lumpur – $30 Million

When something has a name as distinctive as the Nightingale of Kuala Lumpur, chances are good that it stands out in more than one sense. In this case, it is the name of a dress that is estimated to be worth $30 million, which can be attributed to its creation by a well-known Malaysian designer named Faiyzali Abdullah as well as the cost of the materials that went into it. Some examples range from chiffon and silk to Swarovski crystals and 751 diamonds. The result is certainly stunning, but the cost is stunning as well for a wholly different reason.
