The World's Most Expensive Dress Is At Raffles Dubai
October 19, 2012 at 4:15 PM
For what's shaping up to be our weekly Fantasy Friday post, we head back to Dubai (under better circumstances, this time, from earlier bad news) where the Raffles Resort is showcasing one hell of a dress—the world’s most expensive in fact--today and tomorrow.
How much does this frock cost? A whopping $5.65 million is the price tag for the Black Diamond dress created by British fashion designer Debbie Wingham.
Those at the hotel can ooh and ahh over the elegant sheath during a special Fashion Afternoon Tea this weekend featuring delicate pastry items like the Dark Chocolate Stiletto encrusted with sugar diamonds .
And just so you’re not sitting there eating cake and glumly lusting after sparkly things you can't afford, guests can enter a contest to win a pair of limited edition DCJ Black Diamond jeans worth $4,040. All you need to do is be able to spot the difference between the genuine Black Diamond dress and the “fake”, which is only worth a meager $16K.
But wait, there’s more! If you don’t want to leave anything up to chance and need something you can definitely luxuriate in, the Raffles spa has two special Diamond treatments on the menu—one for him and one for her. The Hommage Black Diamond Exfoliation is an hour’s worth of massage and facial using ground black diamonds and silver spheres to help achieve a sleek, chiseled look. Whereas the women’s Black Diamond Recovery treatment is 90 minutes of the pampering listed above. Both treatments are permanent fixtures at the hotel's spa, so if you can't make it to Dubai this weekend, no worries!
