The weird thing about "the most expensive dress in the world" is it's not actually a very good dress, it just incompetently uses expensive raw materials.

The skirt fabric is unimaginative and poorly integrated with the bodice, the details follow lines bizarrely taking no account of the shape of the human body, it's tied round the middle like a sack of potatoes, the "shrug" part adds nothing new but isn't really a part of the whole, the back is just a subdued recapitulation of the front, the hem line is inditstinct, the skirt is clearly not bias cut for no very obvious reason or effect in a long gown.... Very odd.
