Stuart Hughes’ gold, diamond-studded Apple iPhone 3G Supreme is ‘most expensive iPhone’ at $3M+

British designer Stuart Hughes has created the most expensive cell phone on Earth by adding some serious bling to Apple’s iPhone, Infibeam.com says. Hughes used 271 grams of 22-karat gold and 136 flawless diamonds to create an iPhone 3GS worth a whopping $3.2 million. “The iPhone is the phone with the most tricks on the market. What possibly could we do to trick it up more? Bless it with the finest precious metal and jewels,” Hughes told PC Advisor. It took Hughes 10 months to create the phone.
“Most of the 10 months was spent trying to source the diamond for the navigation button,” Hughes said. The Apple logo, embedded in the gold casing on the back of the phone, is made of 58 diamonds totaling roughly one carat. The navigation button on the front of the iPhone was made from a rare seven-carat diamond.

Chanel-Pre-Fall-20ddd14

Karl Lagerfeld for CHANEL – Paris Dallas 2013/2014 Métiers d’Art. The location was meant to honor the brand’s long-standing relationship with America.

Welcome to the Wild, Wild West — by way of Chanel! When Karl Lagerfeld dropped the fashion community into Dallas, TX, for the annual Métiers d’Art show, the expectation was a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. On that promise, Karl delivered with a prairie-inspired collection influenced by Americana. With rich tweeds transitioning into Southwestern tapestries and worn-in denim, looks were accompanied by suede boots, lariats, cowboy hats, feathers, and fringe as far as the eye could see. They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and it doesn’t get bigger than Karl’s take on the Lone Star State.

A Celebration of Fashion, Parties, and Timeless Beauty
by Diana Oswald, David Patrick Columbia

When the golden age of high fashion and high society converged, and glamour was born. A debutante’s dress is anything but a minor detail, and this sumptuous volume delights in one stunning look after another: lace bodices and silver sequins by Chanel; Vionnet’s luxurious silk brocades; the signature white satin gloves and ubiquitous feathers of the ’30s; fluid frocks by Schiaparelli; the heiress-worthy designs of Claire McCardell and Valentina, especially popular with the ladies of the Whitney and Vanderbilt families; tulle and chiffon gowns by Dior and Mainbocher; sleek, one-shoulder styles by Norman Norell; and the one-of-a-kind, custom-made gowns donned by countless celebutantes, such as Jackie Kennedy and Brenda Frazier (whose custom frock earned her the cover of Life magazine). Debutantes celebrates the timeless tradition with gorgeous photography from high-society and fashion documenters such as Cecil Beaton, Toni Frissell, and Slim Aarons as well as never-before-published pictures culled from personal collections. Traversing winter cotillions at the Waldorf, summer coming-out soirees in Newport, and bourgeois banquets in Paris, Debutantes marries high fashion and society with an eternal allure to be coveted by all ages.
