The star’s vintage Christian Dior dress, which divided fashion critics at the Oscars, was sold for a phenomenal sum to a couture collector.

The company, who Natalie borrowed the dress from, put it up for auction on their site 1stdibs.com once it had been returned, and must have been pleased with the result, with a London-based couture enthusiast getting their hands on the exquisite piece.
The strapless red gown with black polka dots and a full skirt was designed by the legendary couturier Christian Dior back in his hey-day in 1954, just three years before his untimely death. Natalie’s stylist Kate Young thought the dress suited the Oscar-winning actress’ petite frame and chic style, and it was an obvious choice for the Dior Cherie model and Dior ambassador.
While the dress provoked a marmite reaction at the Oscars, it definitely didn’t divide opinion at auction.
