A Christian Dior Dress Sells for €85,000 — a World Record

An original Christian Dior dress, Zerline, fetched 85,000 euros — smashing its estimated range of 6,000-8,000 euros — at the ARTCURIAL auction at the Hotel Drouot on June 24, conducted by PB Fashion group. Dating from 1957, the year of the couturier’s death, the wasp-waisted strapless stunner in black silk taffeta sets a new world record for the house — and, as far as we know, anywhere. The buyer’s identity is being withheld because who wants to be stalked by packs of ladies who collect?
