The Most Expensive Dresses Of All Time That Were Worn At The Oscars
The Academy Awards or Oscars is the biggest night in Hollywood. It is the night we celebrate cinema and all the movies and outstanding performances we got the entire year. This is the night every Hollywood star nominated or not puts on the finest fabrics and walks down the red carpet.
Over the years it has become a tradition for actresses to show off their fashion choices while on the red carpet and they have always dazzled us but did anyone ever think what the price of those dresses was?
Way back in 1954, legendary actress, Audrey Hepburn won Best Actress for ‘Roman Holiday’. It is still one of the most iconic movies in Hollywood. The dress she wore to the ceremony was a version of the dress she had worn in the movie. The floral dress with a white belt and a boat neckline was by Givenchy and cost around $131,292 in those days!
Liz Taylor is one of the most famous Hollywood actresses of all time. In 1970, she presented the Best Picture award and for the event, she wore a blue chiffon gown. It was designed by costume designer Edith Head. In 1999 the gown was auctioned off and the makers of Barbie, Mattel bought the gown for $167,500.
Nicole Kidman has always been at the top of Hollywood. Way back in 1997, she wore a Christian Dior dress costing around $2,000,000! Yes, you read that right. She wasn’t even nominated for anything but she still slayed and showed everyone that her fashion game is always on point. This was one of the most expensive dresses to ever hit the red carpet.
Anne Hathaway is one of the most gorgeous and talented actresses of Hollywood. At the 2011 Oscar’s she wore a red satin gown by Valentino. The gorgeous gown was worth around $80,000. She paired it with a diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. which cost around $10 million. That is one expensive ensemble but she did it justice.
At the 2016 Oscar’s Rooney Mara wore a lace dress by Givenchy. The dress was visually stunning and was reportedly worth over $100,000. That year she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for ‘Carol’. She didn’t win the award but she won the fashion game that evening, and that’s no easy feat.
