Cate Blanchett won the Best Actress Oscar at the 2014 Academy Awards. She probably felt like a million dollars. She looked even pricier.
Blanchett’s total Oscars outfit was an estimated $18.1 million dollars, according to Vogue magazine. Her embellished nude dress from the Armani Prive Fall 2013 Collection carries a price tag estimated at $100,000. The jewels – all of which was on loan – pushed Blanchett’s outfit cost over-the-top.
Her Chopard-designed earrings had 62 opals set in white gold and wore a brown diamond bracelet and a pear-shaped diamond ring, both also from Chopard, pushed the total damage over $18 million.
Second runner-up was Charlize Theron who sadly only sported a $15 million dollar get-up.
