The Academy Awards are emblematic of Hollywood: if you are there, it is a sign that you made it and there is no turning back. In addition to recognizing talented Hollywood actors, the Oscars red carpet is a fashion event where we can see some of the most impressive dresses of all time. Most of them cost quite a bit of money, but these history-making dresses are the most expensive of all time.
1. Anne Hathaway
Anne looks like a red swan while walking in this luxurious Valentino. It’s clear that red is this brunette’s color as she walked (or floated, let’s say) in a faille silk dress. The strapless masterpiece was worth $80,000, which was quite a lot in 2011. Matching that signature dress, this dress was practically made for Hathaway. It also helps that she was wearing a $10 million necklace.
2. Lupita N’yongo
Not many would think that Calvin Klein would make it to the top of the list of “most expensive” dresses, but this custom look for the 2015 Academy Awards was created with over 6,000 pearls, so the fact that it cost 150,000 It really doesn’t surprise us. . The details on the chest and halter back made it an innovative creation. Only the best for this short-haired beauty.
3. Charlize Theron
At the 2014 Academy Awards, Charlize rocked an elegant white peplum, complete with geometric lines and crystal details. This look could still hold up in 2020 and Charlize will always be a style icon for us. The look was a custom-made Dior Haute Couture masterpiece that cost $100,000. That elegant pixie cut tied it all together.
4. Cate Blanchett
Cate is known for her glamorous looks on the carpet, but at the 2014 Oscars, she one-upped Charlize: She wore a $100,000 Armani Prive dress at the 2014 Academy Awards, that was her look even years earlier at the Awards of the 2007 Academy Awards. That really racked up the dollars. Again from Armani Prive, this silver, mesh and tulle creation was studded with diamonds in the usual Blanchett trend and cost $200,000.
5. Kate Winslet
At the 2007 Academy Awards, Kate Winslet opted for a timeless look in a memorable color. The Valentino dress she wore cost $100,000. One-shouldered in seafoam green, this draped look featured a train built into the bodice and was the ultimate combination of regality and sobriety. Fashion experts voted her best dressed at this event, and we can see why.
