That Red Carpet Look You Loved (Or Hated) Cost $8 Million To Put Together

Dressing a celebrity for an awards show is a little more complicated than buying a designer dress, shoes, and bag, and keeping your fingers crossed that the bloggers woke up on the right side of bed. In fact, the whole business of getting, say, Charlize Theron into her couture Dior gown, Cartier jewels, and Givenchy shoes cost quite a bit of wheeling, dealing, and — oh yes — $8,079,905 to put together. Check out NYMag's breakdown of how much was spent on what, just so we could all get an opportunity to live-tweet about Charlize's pink moment. Now, where's our cut of that check? (The Cut)
