4 Million Dollars for a Dress! Absurdly Expensive Outfits of Stars From the Red Carpet

These dresses cost as much as a luxury car or a cozy house somewhere on the ocean. We tell you which of the stars did not skimp on their outfits and broke all possible records in price. 

Jennifer Lawrence ($4 million)

Jennifer Lawrence’s fatal outfit, in which she received the Oscar for Best Actress in 2013, breaks all records. The public remembered the Dior dress with a full skirt for a long time, and the reason for this was not only the unusual design but also the uncomfortable cut, which caused the star to fall right on the way to the award. When the presenters invited the actress onto the stage to present her with a statuette, she tripped on the stairs and fell straight onto the steps. We are sure that Jen herself will remember her legendary image for a long time…

Charlize Theron ($100 thousand)

That same year, Jen competed with Charlize Theron – she appeared on the red carpet in a laconic white Christian Dior dress worth 100 100,000 dollars. The outfit is not as simple as it seems at first glance. Its high cost is explained by the fact that the peplum is hand-embroidered with hundreds of crystals. The star didn’t limit herself to just the dress and raised the price of the look with Harry Winston diamond bracelets, which cost her $4 million.

Lupita Nyong’o ($150 thousand)

One of the most famous Oscar film dresses was the white Calvin Klein, decorated with six thousand pearls, which Lupita Nyong’o wore in 2015. 

It was not the unique design or high cost that brought him fame. Immediately after the ceremony, it was stolen and found only a few days later. But the robbers never fell into the hands of the police…

Cate Blanchett ($200 thousand)

In 2007, the title of most luxuriously dressed Oscar star rightfully went to Cate Blanchett. The star appeared on the red carpet in an Armani Privé chainmail dress, decorated with Swarovski crystals. She had to pay 200 thousand dollars for it, but it was worth it…

Nicole Kidman ($2 million)

Nicole shone in this dress on the Oscars red carpet in 1997. The actress did not apply for an award at that time and simply came for company with her husband, Tom Cruise, however, it was she who became the main star of the evening. John Galliano’s yellow silk dress secured her the title of not only the most stylish, but also the most expensively dressed celebrity at the ceremony – her outfit was valued at as much as $2 million.

Paris Hilton ($270 thousand)

Queen of glamor Paris Hilton cannot live without shiny things. In 2017, at the Hollywood Beauty Awards, where she was to be awarded for best fragrance, she arrived in a luxurious August Getty outfit, decorated with 500,000 Swarovski crystals.

It’s not hard to guess that that evening the famous blonde shone brighter than the other stars.

Kate Winslet ($100 thousand)
