Money Can't Buy Class: Check Out The $5 Million Dress

We've seen a lot of crazy/tacky/horrific things in fashion (Affliction T-shirts, anyone?), but this dress puts the icing on the cake — literally. British designer Debbie Wingham debuted a frock at Ukraine Fashion Week that's worth...wait for it...$5 million big ones.
According to The Huffington Post, it was created using 50 two-carat black diamonds, which were sewn into the peplum and the matching shrug. And, on top of being a treat for the eyes, it's also a treat for the thighs — the dress weighs a whopping 29 pounds. So, really, $5 million gets the potential buyer a dress and a workout.
The jury is still out on whether Wingham's creation qualifies for the prestigious title of World's Most Expensive Dress, as there are rumors of other gowns worth more than twice its price. Either way, we're sure there are plenty of Real Housewives that are suddenly much more interested in Ukraine Fashion Week. (The Huffington Post)
