Wild fantasies Just imagine a jacket full of diamonds, rubies and pearls.

Each of these diamonds weighs a jaw dropping 240 carats. This designer piece is priced at an exorbitant price of U.S. $ 943,000. At second position The 2nd most expensive jacket in the world is also not far away from the top ranked. The credit for designing this particular piece goes to world famous luxury designer Alexander Amosu. He made the jacket using high quality exotic fibres like vicuna, pashmina and quiviuk. He also added diamonds to the jacket, adding glamour and elegance. It took 80 hours to complete this artistic vision and was completed from gold and platinum threads.

Magic Forever The most expensive jacket in the world in its own category has to be from this legendary artist, the god of music, having billions of fans all over the world, the one and only Michael Jackson. M.J. wore a red and black jacket in the extremely popular music video ‘Thriller’, which topped the charts in 1983. In this video of around 14 minutes, Michael Jackson had worn a red and black jacket before turning into a zombie.

Nevertheless, it’s M.J. so miracles are bound to happen. The entire list has one thing in common; that there are some very rich people around the world who indeed shell out phenomenal amounts of money for the clothes of their choice or antiques and keep trying to be a class apart very so often. And why not? They are rich, they are famous and they pay homage to a lot of designers who have very artistic visions. ]]>
