You won't believe how much Oscar's leading ladies spent on their gowns

For film stars, the Oscars is one of the most fashionable evenings of the year - and the high stakes are there for the evening's leading ladies and men on the red carpet as much as inside the Dolby Theatre where the statues are handed out. But we were still shocked to find out the total cost of the actresses show-stopping creations and their male counterparts' suits, all of which totalled USD$750,000 for the 20 actor-category nominees!

Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence and Charlotte Rampling topped the most expensive dress list

The calculation was carried out by website LookLive, a company that tracks clothing and accessories worn by celebrities on and off screen.

Cate Blanchett got tongues wagging in a beautiful floral Armani Privé dress worth a staggering $100,000, while Jennifer Lawrence rocked a sultry lace and feather Dior gown that carries the same price tag.

But they weren't even the most expensive dresses on the red carpet – Best Supporting Actress nominee Charlotte Rampling took that prize with a $125,000 gown by Armani Prive.

As for the male nominees, their attire didn't come cheap either! Michael Fassbender topped the most expensive suit list with his $5,200 Tom Ford suit, while Best Actor winner Leonardo DiCaprio's Armani suit cost an estimated $1,995.
