Here’s Your Look at The Most Expensive Gowns That Ever Graced The Oscars Red Carpet
The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, is arguably the most prestigious of all the acting award-giving bodies. So, it’s not surprising that it’s also become one of the most anticipated events of the year for Hollywood’s brightest stars. Part of the excitement around the event is the fabulous, designer gowns that actresses wear to the red carpet. Here are some of the most expensive ones that ever graced the Oscars.
Kate Winslet in Valentino
Looking at Kate Winslet’s elegant Valentino gown she wore to the Academy Awards in 2007, it’s no surprise that she was later on voted as the night’s best dressed despite not winning a major award. The dress’ light green shade certainly complimented her skin and its train only added to the gown’s glamorous look. It’s estimated that the garment now costs an estimated $100,000.
Charlize Theron’s Dior Couture Dress
South African-born actress Charlize Theron is certainly one of the few people stunning enough to get away with wearing such a simple and classic outfit as she did during the 2013 Oscars. The fact that she was wearing a $100,000 Dior dress certainly gave her an edge though. Her stunning white, strapless gown earned her a spot among the night’s best-dressed celebrities.
Cate Blanchett’s Armani Ensemble
Australian actress Cate Blanchett always manages to look regal but her Armani Prive ensemble during the 2014 Academy Awards is truly something else. Costing a reported $100,000, her bedazzled gown isn’t even the most luxurious part of her look. She was also wearing some pretty pricey jewelry pieces. In total, her entire look for the night reportedly clocked in at a whopping $18.1 million
Elizabeth Taylor’s 70s Stunner
The late actress Elizabeth Taylor wasn’t just a legend on the silver screen. She was also a red carpet icon back in the day thanks to her impeccable taste in fashion. One of her most memorable fashion moments happened during the 1970 Academy Awards where she stunned the public with a periwinkle and violet chiffon gown.
The garment, which was designed by award-winning costume designer Edith Head, was later on auctioned for a cool $167,500 in 1999 and still remains in the memory of fashion critics to this day.
Jennifer Lawrence’s 2013 Win Dress
Topping the list of the most expensive Oscars dresses ever is the Dior Couture gown that ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress Jennifer Lawrence donned during the 2013 Academy Awards.
The blush-pink Cinderella-inspired stunner reportedly costs an eye-popping $4 million and was generously loaned to Lawrence for the night as she was the face of the designer brand at the time. Another memorable aspect of the night was the actress’ famous tripping mishap as she went up the stage to get her award.
