Beverly Hills, California will once again be center of news, as Julien’s Auctions organize yet another gala, which will see some historic memorabilia go under the hammer. Amongst the list of star attractions, will be singer Whitney Houston’s black velvet gown, and a pair of pearl earnings, along with Charlie Chaplin’s walking stick and personal driving license, Princess Diana vintage gown, President Kennedy’s rocking chair, and Christopher Reeve’s Superman costume. The gown which was originally worth $1,000, is expected to fetch much more, and the faux pearl earnings is expected to be somewhere around $600.
Titled ‘Hollywood Legends’, this auction will see some of cinematic history’s greatest collectibles and memorabilia go on auction. Very recently after singer Whitney Houston passed away, the world has been centering their attention on her. With the auction of her black velvet gown along with the faux pearl earrings, her wealthy fans should be seen bidding rather aggressively for them, which would mean a rather higher winning bid for these items. The velvet dress specifically, is known to be every bit the designer’s work, with the elegant work of silver ribbon at the neck, along with black and clear stones at the waist, hence presenting a very aesthetic impression of a belt with the sharp contrast.
As mentioned before, this auction will include other historical items such as the cane and driving of Charlie Chaplin, Princess Diana’s gown, President Kennedy’s rocking chair, and Chris Reeve’s costume. Held over 2 days from March 31 and April 1 this year, the bidders will be competing fiercely for these items, and they can do so through the online channel, or by phone, or even in person. The items will be put up for display at an exhibition on March 19 this year, at a venue near about where Whitney Houston breathed her last.
