The Oscars Most Expensive Dresses In History

3. Cate Blanchett, 2007 — $200,000

Cate Blanchett is evidently no stranger to a stellar red carpet look, resulting in her second mention on this list. Her appearance at the seventy-ninth Academy Awards saw her dress choice draw attention for its incredible price as well as its unique aesthetic.

At the 2007 Oscars, Blanchett wore an Armani Privé dress which cost two hundred thousand dollars. The dress was a one shouldered, teal/silver mesh gown covered with Swarovski crystals, and also had a black clustered spangle floral motif and a tulle overlay.
