I was just idly internet window shopping when I found the most expensive dress in the world.

Who would spend this much on a dress?

and surely if you were able to spend that much on a dress you'd get in individually made from a posh boutique, not buy it online?

unfortunately it's sold out

Couture dresses are surely more expensive.
Alaia enjoys cult status; there are people in the world to whom the price of a dress is completely irrelevant (many couture clients are from Middle East and other countries with extreme income distributions).

oh that? yeah i bought one last week. needed something for doing the school run in wink

MissWinklyParadiso Sun 11-Nov-12 13:32:47

I am thinking of buying this bargain-tactic number for my next trip to tesco...

That's small potatoes in designer clothes land to be honest.

This Alexander McQueen dress costs £13,995...

If you go to netaporter and select dresses price descending, you'll go through about 250 dresses before you get near the 2k mark.

Do you think that Alexander McQueen one is machine washable?

Mamateur Sun 11-Nov-12 15:04:00

I think you just run the hoover over it, corlan

That's small potatoes in designer clothes land to be honest

but surely designer clothes are the one-off-must-go-to-a-boutique-and-be-a-size-4 dresses and not available online?

I am obviously way behind in the real world expensive dress world

<sigh>

My cat would eat that Alexander McQueen dress. Obviously not designed for cat lovers, or owners of any form of pet.

Sorry to dissapoint, but I too thought that 3k for a dress isnt that much.

I have shoes worth almost that.

Granted, not high street, but most boutique/designer shops would be 10 times that.

I'll have 2 thanks grin

Some people have money to burn ...

HyvaPaiva - that Alexander McQueen dress is outstanding: possibly the most hideous dress I have EVER seen, and costing a fair bit more than my car!!!

FiercePanda Sun 11-Nov-12 18:39:12

Often, the more stupidly priced a dress is, the more vulgar it looks.

LOOK AT ME! I LOOK LIKE THE COLLECTION OF WRAPPERS AT THE BOTTOM OF AN EMPTY QUALITY STREET TIN!

YouveCatToBeKittenMe Sun 11-Nov-12 18:42:37

The worlds most expensive dress is £3.5 million

it's not overly hideous....I wouldn't wear it though!

VolumeOfACone Sun 11-Nov-12 18:47:18

I have seen much more expensive dresses than the first one on netaporter and similar. Sometimes they look like nothing special in the pictures but I bet they are beautifully made.

Panzee Sun 11-Nov-12 18:48:48

That world's most expensive dress doesn't fit her.

EdgarAllanPond Sun 11-Nov-12 18:50:37

3.5 mill and it doesn't cover her boobs - she'd need a cardigan with it.

grin

I was just thinking that Panzee, it's cut for a woman with a much shorter body. That model's norks are completely unrestrained and unsupported.
