LONDON, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The latest Next fashion blog explores if it is possible to place a value on some of the world's most iconic dresses. With some dresses that are, quite literally, priceless; springing from a designer's subconscious, involving the work of seamstresses in their droves and worn once only for Hollywood's red carpet, their latest infographic discovers if it is possible to place a value on some of the world's most iconic dresses.
Burning 270,000 calories… watching My Week With Marilyn 180 times… or hearing Gordon Ramsay say his 32,680th swear word… just some of the things that could happen in the 300 hours it took to make the stunning Louis Vuitton dress Michelle Williams wore to this year's Oscars. So what really is the true value of a priceless dress? Although in 2002 the most expensive red carpet ensemble was £5,000,000, you can treat yourself to something a little more purse friendly from Next's evening, party and maxi dress collection, with coordinating shoes and stylish clutch bags.
Whether you're looking for the Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's look, or that famous floaty dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, Next have some timeless alternatives without the red carpet price tag. In their branded collections, Lipsy has a stunning range of little black dresses with glittery embellishments whilst Geri by Next has a gorgeous white prom dress; a modern take on Marilyn's.
Brimming with all the latest trends, Next has the best in on-trend womenswear, menswear, children's and homeware. Love what you see?
