It really is incredible to think someone was prepared to pay $4.6 million dollars for a dress. I think it shows the huge influence clothes have. I just wonder also how long this silk dress will last. Being silk it's shelf life is limited unless it is stored and handled very carefully. I'm astounded. I bet Debbie Reynolds is also and very happy.
