Actually, the dresses have prices but the latter are very high. Peau de soie fabric, unique century-old lace, golden thread and taffeta still can't increase the price to millions of dollars even if all of them are used in abundance. Diamonds determine the price! Women love diamonds and some love them in plenty. Here is a list of most known and most expensive "diamond" dresses in the world:

Even the dress train is encrusted with natural gemstones. All diamonds come from Middle Eastern jeweler Mouawad, an author of Heidi Klum's jewelry line. This masterpiece was created by Malaysian designer Faisol Abdullah in 2009. The dress was displayed at STYLO Fashion festival in Malaysia.
