It is the season to be swathed in Swarovski studs, and the Harrods Crystal Christmas Dress will do just that, dynamically designed to coat the wearer in decadently dripping drapery.

The gown was made using over 150,000 Swarovski Element crystals, hand-stitched to perfection with inspiration stemming from the flapper fashion of the 1920s. Harrods, the high-fashion English department store, commissioned label Ralph & Russo to make up the magnificent floor-grazing gown set to be displayed in a glamorous Christmas window display. Crafted by over 25 style-stitchers that toiled for hundreds of hours, the stunning sheath is an absolute sparkling success.

Let's hope no one on your list this year is hoping for the Harrods Crystal Christmas Dress, because the bank-breaking ballgown will set you back a cool $230,000!
