This People’s Daily headline says it all [sic]: “Girl receive banknote dress from sugardaddy, valued 200,000 rmb.” That’s $32,100.
I can’t say for certain what country’s currency is stitched together to make this dress, but my best guess would be the Vietnamese Dong. (Update, 11:31 pm: Commenter MS just made a convincing case that these bills are Ukrainian, and also why this poor girl probably shouldn’t throw away her Chanel and LV products just yet.) In any case, I can’t imagine it’d be a good idea to wear so much naked moolah on the streets of any country. But something also tells me this girl perhaps doesn’t, how shall we say, care.
In her original Sina Weibo post, she wrote (translation errors mine, though not the [sic] on ”Chanel”):
To celebrate this princess’s big 21st birthday, daddy considerately sent an exceedingly gorgeous cream cake, daddy is just the cutest! The most fun is nevertheless this “conjoined banknote dress” I’m wearing apparently worth 200,000 yuan, a present my daddy racked his brains to buy for me, isn’t it praiseworthy! Sisters, don’t be covetous. Shocked by the value of the dress, all those CHANNEL, LV in my closet are worthless now.
Here she is again:
People have not exactly been kind to this young lady. The nicest thing anyone says to her, it seems, is “stop showing off.” The TV commenter in the below video says reading her Sina Weibo message makes him want to “puke.” He also makes fun of her for showing too much skin.
Others simply call her “brain-dead.” One netizen, perhaps with a wisp of sad understanding, writes, “Don’t know if (sugar daddy) wants to harm you or love you.”
Or wants to have sex. Probably just that.
