$15,800 for a girls dress? In the past, no way. But with the pre-teen celebrity boom, top fashion designers are saying, “Sure, why not’?
Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown slays in a Jenny Packham dress. The dress is
estimated at around $4,000. Earlier that year, Millie was spotted in this Kate Spade floral dress, which is estimated at $1,000.
For a lot of moms, the question of whether or not a dress is worth this much is dependent on the event. For example, a simple flower girl dress is, on average, $60-$150. But in many cases, it’s nothing for a pageant gown or dance competition outfit to cost in the $1,000’s. If the event is a very special occasion, such as Bat Mitzvah, Quinceanera, prom or a big formal event, you can assume the dress or evening gown is going to be pricey as well. This handmade Mischka Aoki dress pictured below features a Silk satin top with macramé lace. Top panels are embellished with hand set Swarovski crystals and pearls. The layered and ruffled lower skirt panels are Silk satin and raw cut organza and features a train. This is truly a remarkable dress fit for any special occasion, or junior bridesmaid of the princess bride.
Over the years we have been stunned by some of the most jaw-dropping red carpet gowns of adult celebs with price tags at over $200,000, and as much as $250,000+ for royal wedding dresses (Duchess Kate). Designers are becoming readily available for teen and tween celebs as easily as they are for adults. We are seeing this more examples of this with the red carpet looks on Maddie Ziegler, Millie Bobby Brown and Skai Jackson.
What’s the most you will spend on a formal dress for your tween girl or teenager?
