Julien's Auctions, a renowned auction house, is gearing up to host an event titled 'Unstoppable Signature Styles of Iconic Women in Fashion' where a collection of gowns worn by iconic women throughout the ages will go under the hammer. Among these mesmerizing pieces are gowns worn by real-life princesses, Hollywood stars, and music legends, each carrying an indelible mark of history and fashion.
Princesses and their Priceless Styles
A black silk velvet cocktail dress, worn by the late Princess Diana, is one of the star attractions of the event. Designed by Catherine Walker, a favorite designer of the Princess, the dress is expected to fetch between $100K-$200K at auction. It is a testament to the timeless elegance and grace of Princess Diana, who continues to influence fashion even after her death.
Another notable item on the block is a vibrant kelly green Givenchy gown worn by Grace Kelly during her reign as Princess of Monaco. The estimated selling price for this piece of royal history is between $60K-$80K. The gown exemplifies Grace Kelly's elegance and her penchant for sophisticated style.
Hollywood Glamour on Auction
The auction is not limited to royal fashion. It also showcases stunning pieces worn by Hollywood's leading ladies. Among them, a sequin gown worn by Nicole Kidman in 'The Stepford Wives,' and a pair of Dolce & Gabbana pants and pumps worn by Cher are expected to draw considerable attention. Also featured is a Louis Verdad gown that graced the album cover of Paris Hilton, and Elizabeth Taylor's caftan from the 1968 film 'Boom.'
Adding to the allure are two pieces worn by Audrey Hepburn - a Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche gown she wore for her son's christening, and a 1970s Grecian-inspired evening dress. Hepburn's style continues to inspire, making these items potentially high-demand pieces at the auction.
More than just Fashion
The items up for auction go beyond being just pieces of clothing, they are a testament to the iconic women who wore them, their styles, personalities, and the eras they represent. The event also features a jeweled asymmetric peplum blazer from Joan Collins, and a custom-made Louis Vuitton gown worn by Donna Summer.
