Oh, that’s a nice dress… It only cost 48 MILLION RAND… I’ll take two!

Hiya Poutlings

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.

Kelly Osbourne is “Sorry” for her Manicure

Hiya Poutlings

The other day, I mentioned this stupid MILLION RAND MANICURE that Kelly Osbourne wore to the Emmys.

She has taken to Twitter to say that she is in fact “sorry”, but of course she’s not, because this so-called-apology is her way of telling the world that she rocked a quarter of a million dollar fucking nail polish.

Why would she go ahead and tell us this? Well, duh… because NOT everyone noticed – LAST WEEK – to begin with. Why would one endure the extravagance of a $250k worth of black diamonds if you cannot brag about it to the world?

Did anyone really notice until it was pointed out to you that her manicure was anything more than a regular OPI or Essie sparkly black?

Whatever. She “didn’t pay” for it… What I want to know is where those diamonds go when the manicure wears off? Are they removed and returned whoever the owner is (since it’s clearly not Kelly)? Does the shit just chip off leaving a trail of sparkly diamonds behind Kelly wherever she goes? Is she hoping to attract a gold-digging man, a-la-Hansel-and-Gretel with the crumbs.

Silliness…. Such silliness. The world is mad.

A MILLION RAND MANICURE

Hiya Poutlings

Nail art has been around for a long while, but only in the past year or so has it evolved into something you were more likely to see on your cool artsy friend into a ubiquitous trend spotted on everyone from Zooey Deschanel to Beyonce.

…on the off chance you have $250,000 (roughly R1,750,000.00 – 1 million, 750 thousand SOUTH AFRICAN RANDS) you’re looking to be really careless with, and you’ve already ruled out eating it, snorting things with it and donating it to the poor, why not make like Kelly Osbourne at the Emmy’s and cash in on the Azature black diamond manicure.

Kelly Osbourne’s Nails @ The Emmys

Ladies and gentlemen of the interwebs, meet the most expensive nail polish in the world: Azature’s Black Diamond. The shimmery black formula contains 267 carats of crushed diamonds, and one bottle will cost you $250,000. The other day, I spent R200 on some Essie nail polishes and I felt a little guilty and self indulgent, so I don’t even know how to comprehend the fact that this exists.

Can you imagine, everytime you chipped your manicure on your keyboard, you’d be losing about $1,000. Talk about stressful.

What, why are you reading this blog post in that tone of voice. It is a completely reasonable and responsible way to spend your money, right?

To Kelly Osbourne’s credit, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she, being a Joan-Rivers-approved-television-personality and Famous Person, got her Black Diamond manicure for free, it is still completely and utterly fucking ridiculous. There, I said it. Now I’m more optimistic about celebrity nail news.

Apparently, Azature is designing to sell to a department store version for $25, but I think I’ll just DIY my own by shredding up some R200 notes and mixing them into a bottle of Essie and then to proceed to cry myself to sleep…You know, it is a sick, sad, world we live in, especially with $250,000 manicures and all.
