There’s a long time trend of creating mega-expensive things like gold and diamond nail polishes, jewellery topped cupcakes, and whatnot. Well, the most expensive dress costs ₤3.5 million, roughly R48 million, yes, you read that right, R48,000,000, it weighs 13 kilograms since it’s embellished with twenty five two carat black diamonds plus twenty five more on the shurg.
The dress is designed by Debbie Wingham, a self-taught designer from Britain whose dresses have worn such celebrities as Kate Winslet, Dita Von Teese, Hilary Swank and others.
The floor length gown features black diamond encrushed peplum and a shoulder shrug as well as the “fine beading and delicate pointer white diamonds set in white gold iwth a very fine chain mail detail“. Debbie Wingham’s collection of diamond dresses was showcased at the Billionaires Club, in Monte Carlo, The Fairmont Grand Hotel Kiev, Ukraine and Russia.
For her future design plans Debbie Wingham is going to do a Diamond Cut Jeans collection with limited edition of just 750 black diamond cut jeans and 1500 white diamond cut jeans.
The next showcases of her work will take place in Dubai, Switzerland, Mumbai and the USA.
Black diamonds seem to be a thing lately. The black diamond nail polish from Azature with a $250,000 price tag contains 267 carat ground black diamonds, the one Kelly Osbourne wore to the 2012 Emmys.
What do you think about the black diamond dress?
I believe people clearly have more money than sense. No one can doubt that Debbie Wingham’s creations are beautiful, but when was the last time you saw someone wearing a dress that could quite happily feed, clothe, educate a third world country?
I know we all at some stage may have splurged bought items when we’re shopping that we KNEW were too expensive, but really, this is a whole other level.
