Say hello to the world's most expensive 'ugly' Christmas sweater


Feast your eyes on what's been billed as the world's most expensive, "ugly" Christmas sweater.

The online retailer Tipsy Elves and jeweler Swarovski teamed up to produce a sweater adorned with 24,274 individually placed Swarovski crystals. 

The cost? Well, it's a jaw-dropping $30,000. But, who can put a price on ugly? 

The sweater took a whopping 52 hours to create, according to Tipsy Elves' website. 

Tipsy Elves and Swarovski aren't the only ones getting in on the holiday fun. This year, even A-listers are getting in the game. 

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg and hip-hop artist Nas have introduced their own designs. 

Goldberg's line of ugly holiday sweaters is also on the pricier side, selling for $139 at Lord and Taylor. 

Nas and HSTRY released a line of kneeling Santa sweaters and will donate a portion of proceeds to the Center for Court Innovation, which is an initiative that seeks to create a more humane justice system.

On top of the designer ugly Christmas sweaters, UglyChristmasSweater.com and Tipsy Elves sell their own ugly sweaters. UglyChristmasSweater.com even lets customers design their own.
