No doubt her bespoke gown and stylish gold and perspex Gianvito Rossi heels would cost a mere mortal more than a few month's wages, but the actual cost of her outfit totted up by one report could give you quite a shock - if you didn't know what it was mostly made up of!

According to Pricetagged by Page 6, the entire outfit cost more than $500K. However it wasn't the dress that is said to be the most expensive piece worn by the wife of George Clooney - it was in fact the accessories that cost the most overall.
