World's priciest dress sparkles with black diamonds
Check this out guys. It's the world's most expensive dress!
Just what you wanted to read about as you try to get through this last hump day of September 2012, right? Sure, we'll never be able to afford it, but let's gawk anyway.
I know what you're thinking: "I could make that."
I have to say ... I kind of like it. And it's not even because, as Huffington Post reports, it's covered in 50 two-carat black diamonds.
Although, that's nice too.
No, I really do like the shape and color. Not sure I could pull it off, but who are we kidding, I'm never going to wear it, so who cares!
The dress is the branchild of British designer Debbie Wingham, and cost, oh, about $5.7 MILLION.
I hope there's a lay-away plan.
Wingham spent 6 months sewing the frock, which weighs as much as a kid. (30 pounds, reports say)
Now, as a person who doesn't even have ONE black diamond to her name, I struggle to connect with why, exactly, you'd need this dress. But I'm sure someone, somewhere out there will snag this eventually.
I'm betting the woman who wears this is probably the same person who'll buy a bottle of the world's most expensive nail polish. They have the same black diamond theme going on.
What say you, readers? Too much?
