Covid Who? Lavish Diamond Encrusted Party Dress Goes for $26 Million
British fashion designer Debbie Wingham, who’s used to set and coat everyday creations with diamonds, has done it again: According to IDEX Online, the designer has recently created a diamond-encrusted party dress worth $26 million.
The dress, made for an unnamed Lebanese client celebrating her 40th birthday, is studded with 15 “super-rare” red diamonds weighing 1.5 carats to 4 carats each and worth $23.8 million, as well as other precious stones: 20 three-carat black diamonds worth $195,000; 10, three-carat white diamonds worth $780,000; one blue diamond just under three carats worth $130,000 and six, two-and-half carat yellow diamonds worth $450,000. The dress is finished with 4,000 tiny single-carat diamonds worth $130,000 and 1,000 fresh-water pearls valued at $105,000.
Wingham’s dress is said to be a “modern take on the traditional Middle Eastern abaya dress”. The Lebannese client has reportedly celebrated her birthday with a main party “at her mansion in Mijas, Spain, and 20 lavish lockdown parties for her friends around the world, each of whom received a $4,000 goody bag”.
