The £885 designer socks celebrities can't get enough of

The most decadent hosiery of all time?

Laura Sutcliffe

There's a decadent trend that the Hollywood A-list are currently coveting and it may come as a shock – bedazzled socks. Not just any old socks either - crystal embellished Gucci socks, which retail at a whopping £885! The striking acessories have been donned by a whole host of celebrities, including 49-year-old Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer Lopez donned the Gucci socks with high heels

The mother-of-two posted a stylish picture on her Instagram account on Tuesday evening – and the Maid in Manhattan actress looked typically stunning in a cosy white turtleneck jumper and voluminous tulle tutu skirt. However fans went wild for her unusual footwear choice - a pair of strappy sandals, over the top of Gucci's sequined socks! All the attention was on the Jenny From The Block singer's feet; even Jennifer herself recognised this, and captioned the shot:

"I got a new pair of socks today.. #guccigang"

The dazzling socks are £885

The knitted socks are made in a neutral cream shade and feature a crystal interlocking 'GG' pattern that the designer brand is known for. Almost too good to keep under wraps, the sparkly socks work well on show – and indeed work the best paired with your favourite pair of heels.

Jennifer, mother to twins Max and Emme, both 9, isn't the only high-profile celebrity to sport the socks. Rihanna paired her white high-heel stiletto shoes with the statement hosiery and updated her Instagram account with a close-up of the combo, as well as a full 'outfit of the day shot' - pairing her sparkly footwear with a black slip dress and a cosy, oversize puffa jacket.

The shimmery socks are indeed a collector's piece due to the ivory hued detail and iridescent sequin embellishments. Designed to be worn as outwear they are far too special to keep hidden away! Made in Italy in a super soft material, they may just be the most expensive socks of all time – so definitely shouldn't be tossed to the back of your sock drawer!
