PHOTO:View The World’s Most Expensive Dress Valued At $17.7 Million

The saying diamonds are a girl’s best friend has been taken to a whole new level as the world’s most expensive dress has been unveiled.

The dazzling dress is encrusted with 2000 stones in total including the star of the show: the world’s rarest and most expensive red diamond.

The Abaya created by British designer Debbie Wingham may be attracting masses of attention because of its £11.7m price tag.

Debbie first made her mark on the fashion world when she unveiled a £3.5m black dress encrusted with 52 carat black diamonds that weighed a hefty 29lbs (13kg) last year.

Her latest creation may be a simple abaya design (a loose over-garment, essentially a robe-like dress, worn by some women in parts of the Islamic world including in North Africa and the Arabian Peninsul) but the extravagant design and detailing makes it the most expensive item to ever go on sale.

At the centre of the dress dazzles the world’s rarest and most expensive diamond.
One in every hundred million diamonds is a natural red colour and they are found on average every 50 years but generally too small to speak of, so this is something quite special.
The individual diamond has a value of £4.89m.

Fashion is cyclical. Trends come and go, many of them to be resurrected in 20 years and then forgotten again until the next go-round.

On the other hand, there are awful dead fashion outfits people wear that should never be seen again, but some have insisted on lingering well past their expiration dates. If you actually wear any of these outfits below or if you’ve stashed them in your closet, waiting for the moment they make a comeback, please, do yourself a favor and get rid of them immediately.

DAVID GANDY will show his support for this year’s International Women’s Day action on March 8, by participating in a panel discussion at the Women: Inspiration & Enterprise’s annual symposium. The famous model and vogue.co.uk contributor will join political aide Alastair Campbell, designer Ozwald Boateng and Capital London radio presenter Dave Berry to talk about “what women can learn from men to help achieve the greatest success in enterprise, philanthropy and building a brand”. WIE creator June Sarpong and WIE contributor Margherita Taylor urged Gandy to take part.

“I hugely respect both Margherita and June and they inspire me with the projects and events they are involved in and their drive,” said Gandy. “So of course, I jumped at the chance of joining the other people on the panel and supporting WIE.”

The WIE event, which will be held at the Hospital Club, will bring leading names from politics, fashion, business and entertainment together to hold a series of talks and workshops to help inspire and empower women. Tickets are available now from wienetwork.co.uk and cost £250 per person.

“I’m really interested to hear the panel’s stories of how they have become successful in their field,” added Gandy. “Whenever people share their experiences you learn a lot – something that may resonate with you or inspire you.  There are many women in my industry who have built fantastic careers in modelling and continue to do so. They inspire me and I’ve learnt a lot by observing them and admiring what they have achieved. Hopefully, between us as a panel, we will be able to share things which may be of interest to the people in the audience or help them in the future.”
