Don't Leave Home Without It
Before there was Lady Gaga, there was Lizzy Gardiner! The famed costume designer took fashion to a whole new level at the 1995 Academy Awards with her self-created look. Made entirely of gold American Express credit cards, the gown was originally conceived for The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the film which earned her that year's Oscar for best costume designer. In 1999, the dress was auctioned off to benefit amfAR, the American Foundation for AIDS Research, and sold for $12,650!
