Irish pop beauty Samantha Mumba wowed the crowds at London's SPIDER-MAN II premiere in Leicester Square last night (12JUL04) - by turning up in a diamond dress worth $9 million (GBP5 million).

The I'M RIGHT HERE singer - who arrived with boyfriend SISCO - had the dress designed for her by fashion guru Scott Henshall.

Henshall created the gorgeous gown out of thousands of webcup diamonds in tribute to the TOBEY MAGUIRE-starring film, and topped it off with a giant diamond spider ring which covered Mumba's right hand.

The ecstatic singer enthused, "Scott made this dress especially for me and I'm so excited to be wearing it, though I'm a bit nervous because it cost so much money."

It is believed the dress will now enter the record books as the most expensive ever created.
