Fashion designer Zac Posen has created a 24 Karat dress which was valued at $1.5 million!

This luxurious dress was made as a promotion for Magnum Ice Cream's latest ice cream bar Magnum Gold, vanilla bean ice cream with salted caramel, covered in a golden chocolate coating.

The designer made the dress out of gold paillettes because he thought it would look better on camera, "with the liquid quality echoing the drippiness of melting ice cream and the texture of molten gold."

 

According to Time magazine: "The dress is covered in more than 10,000 hand-embroidered sequins, each one handmade from sheets of 24 karat gold and laid on paillettes. And they’re technically not solid gold because it would have made the gown too heavy for anyone to wear."

The dress made its debut in a short film entitled As Good As Gold, which features Joe Manganiello and Caroline Correra, who was fitted for the $1.5 million number and wore the dress to the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City last week.
