Cate Blanchett wore the most expensive Oscars outfit


It's been revealed that Cate Blanchett wore the most expensive outfit at this year's Oscars, valued at a whopping £10.9 million ($18.1 million).

The actress wore Chopard jewellery that included 62 opals with a combined 33 carats, a brown diamond bracelet, and a pear-shaped diamond ring, all of which reportedly cost approximately £10.88 million ($18 million). The remaining £60,000 ($100,00), or there abouts, was the price of Blanchett's Armani Privé gown.

In a list compiled by Vogue Australia on the nine most expensive Academy Awards outfits, Charlize Theron nearly nabbed the top spot but was a couple million shy, as her outfit only amounted to £9.55 million ($15.89 million). Her dress was Christian Dior haute couture and was roughly £54,000 (940,000) and accessorised it with £9.49 million ($15.8 million) worth of Harry Wintson jewels, which included a diamond necklace and diamond stud earrings.

Catherine Martin, Margot Robbie and Jessica Biel

Third on the list was Gravity star, Sandra Bullock whose £4.95 million outfit was way behind both Blanchett and Theron. The Best Actress nominee had on a couple of pieces of jewellery by Lorraine Schwartz, including platinum and diamond cluster earrings worth £1.1 million ($1.8 million) and a diamond bracelet worth around £3.86 million ($6.4 million). Her Alexander McQueen dress was a paltry $24,000 ($40,000) - substantially less than her gems.

Nine women featured on the list, and included Jennifer Lawrence whose look cost £2.1 million ($3.58 million), Jennifer Garner who rocked a £3.1 million ($5.2 million) outfit, and Amy Adams who wore a Gucci Première gown at £18,000 ($30,000) with £89,000 ($1.4805 million) worth of Tiffany& Co jewels.
