Vintage Dior Dress Sells For $50,000
Natalie Portman's vintage Christian Dior Oscars gown divided fashion critics, but a couture collector has snapped it up for a massive $50,000
The red polka dot dress dates back to the fashion house's 1954 spring/summer collection, and has reportedly been bought by a London-based fashion fan, despite the weighty price tag.
Portman originally had another dress in mind to wear to the prestigious ceremony, but when she tried on the silk gown in New York couture dealers Rare Vintage, she knew it was the one.
Pairing the eye-catching piece with a black clutch and a chunky silver necklace, the Black Swan actress made headlines on the red carpet.
Shortly afterwards, the boutique put the US size 4 gown under the hammer on website 1stdibs.com, where it was swiftly snapped up.
