It’s not news that celebrities spend fortunes – large fortunes – on their wardrobes. What is most shocking at times is how much celebs are willing to spend on a single item of clothing. Here is a list of some of the most outrageously priced duds ever to have been owned by movie stars, rockers, rappers, supermodels, and other such members of the glitterati.
1) 5 Million Dollar Fantasy Bra from Victoria’s Secret
The 2008 Fantasy Bra from Victoria’s Secret covered in black diamonds, white diamonds and rubies costs as much as most people’s dream homes. In other words, it is the same price as 25 college educations at the most expensive private schools.
2) $2,200,000 Ruby Slippers
We all know women who love shoes. But there is an unnamed Hollywood actress who REALLY loves shoes. Although her name has been kept secret, we know that an A-lister payed a pretty penny for a replica of the ruby slippers from the movie version of The Wizard of Oz. This replica, however, was made with real rubies. A famous jeweler decorated the pumps with over 600 precious stones.
3) $250,000 Jeans from Dussault Apparel’s Trashed Denim Line
At first glance these jeans may look like something that wouldn’t even be accepted as a donation by the Salvation Army. However, they are highly crafted garments that go through a number of dyeing, painting and washing treatments and are adorned with precious stones and metals. Celebs such as Criss Angel and Kat Von D have been known to wear duds from this line of clothing.
4) $220,000 Necktie
In 2003, the Satya Paul Design Studio revealed a necktie that was made of silk and gold and was adorned with over 250 diamonds which added up to a total of 77 carats. This tie was worn by Salman Khan, a Bollywood movie star.
5) The $150,000 Handbag
Worn by celebrities of all stripes and loved by top fashion movers and shakers such as Katie Holmes and Rachael Zoe, this bag is a symbol of wealth and luxury. While some models are priced as low as $900, these purses can fetch as much as $150,000 dollars depending on materials and rarity.
6) $90,000 Nike Sneakers
Look a little closer and you will see that the swooshes on these sneakers are, in fact, made out of rows of colored diamonds. These bling bling Nike’s were purchased by Antwan “Big Boi” Patton of Outkast.
7) The $50,000 Suit from Kiton
These bespoke suits could easily eat up a school teacher’s entire salary in one go. These suits are a favorite among the nattily dressed rich and famous gents of the world.
8) $44,740 Men’s Shirt from Eton
The Swedish company Eton celebrated its 80th birthday by selling what has been called “The World’s Most Expensive Shirt,” a crisp white garment that comes in its own funereal black case.
9) $20,000 Vintage Duds
Many top brands become even more expensive once they become old enough to be called “vintage.” This is especially true for Chanel, a brand that is beloved by many stars and has been worn in recent years by Mischa Barton and Selma Blair. Vintage Chanel attire can easily go for $20,000 or more at auction.
10) $600+ for Playclothes
A list about pricey celebrity clothing wouldn’t be complete without a note about the cash that A-listers spend on their kids’ wardobes. We recently spotted Suri Cruise wearing a play dress that costs more than $600. Whew!
