The world's most expensive dress is unveiled The saying 'Diamonds are a girls best friend' has been taken to a whole new level as the world's most expensive dress has been unveiled. The dazzling garment is encrusted with 2,000 stones in total, including the star of the show: the world's rarest and most expensive red diamond. The Abaya, created by British designer Debbie Wingham, may be attracting masses of attention because of its £11.7m price tag, but will anyone actually buy it? Her latest creation may be a simple abaya design (a loose over-garment, essentially a robe-like dress, worn by some women in parts of the Islamic world including North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula) but the extravagant design and detailing makes it the most expensive item to ever go on sale.

Matt Prior was immovable in a memorable demonstration of collective resistance as England somehow avoided a first Test series defeat in New Zealand for almost 30 years. Prior's unbeaten 110 scrambled England to 315 for nine at stumps in the final Test at Eden Park in a tour-de-force rearguard which also featured a near six-hour 75 from Ian Bell, a triumph of self-denial as Stuart Broad batted an astonishing 61 balls before scoring his first run and then number 11 Monty Panesar helping to keep out the last 19 balls.
