Costume Exhibit & Auction at The Paley Center

8 Jun

Hollywood icon Debbie Reynolds is holding an auction at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, CA. Featured will be iconic costumes from timeless movies that Ms. Reynolds has personally collected over the past 50 years. The Paley Center is holding a FREE preview exhibit of the Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Memorabilia Collection from now until June 17, 2011.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Two of the costumes up for auction are Audrey Hepburn’s iconic dress from ‘My Fair Lady,’ along with Marilyn Monroe’s dress from ‘The Seven Year Itch.’ A test pair of Judy Garland’s ruby red slippers from ‘The Wizard of Oz’ are also up for auction.

The exhibit will be open June 8 – 12 and June 15 – 17 from 12:00pm to 5pm. The auction itself will be held on June 18th. You must register for the auction to attend. Click here for more details from the Paley Center.

According to Ms. Reynolds, “My lifetime dream has been to assemble and preserve the history of the Hollywood film industry. Hollywood has been an enormous part of my life as I know it has been for countless fans all over the world. This collection represents a lifetime of collecting Hollywood artifacts and this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood History for those who love the movies as much as I do. For the first time in nearly five decades, these iconic pieces will be made available to the public through a series of auctions presented by Profiles in History beginning in June 2011.”

Being that my dream is to become a Costume Designer, I look forward to hopefully seeing these Hollywood treasures in person!

cheers! andrea ♥
