Award seasons are important to us all. Why? Perhaps because we yearn to see our favorite celebrities win their hard earned recognition. But for most of us, we just couldn’t wait to see them in their most lavished dresses and fashionable gowns. The Academy Awards are the biggest and most prestigious awards of them all. Every guy and gal dream to one day fit their shoes and live their realities. Ever wondered about the price tag of what these celebs wear? You guessed right, pricey! But the merits of being a celeb means they are simply only modeling these fantasy dresses, picked up by their stylist for the night and after all the “step and repeats”, camera and actions they are on to the next beautiful wear. Who are these dresses marketed to and who buys them? You and I. But can you really afford any? Perhaps.
Vogue UK reported that Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett had the most expensive outfit of Oscar’s night. Between Cate’s dress and jewels, her ensemble (an Armani Prive gown and Chopard jewels) cost a total of $18.1 million. Cate and a few other ladies literally looked like a million bucks. Charlize Theron’s outfit was the second most expensive outfit, her Dior dress and Harry Winston jewels was a whopping $15.89 million. Sandra Bullock came in third, with an $8.24 million on her Alexander McQueen dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Bullock was followed by Margot Robbie and Jennifer Garner whose outfits are valued at $8,012 million and $5,025 million, respectively. With price tags this high, it’s no wonder celebs change for the after party. Its way too much pressure to let loose in outfits that cost millions. But there is no denying that these ladies looked stunning, and the Oscars are the biggest event of the season right? You know what they say, “Go Big, or Go Home”.
