Debbie Reynolds, Last summer the auction of the collection of the singer Debbie Reynolds “destroyed the Guinness World Records record with sales in the millions of cultural treasures that had pain for more fans.
Profiles in History, directed by Joe Maddalena, has announced the auction of the collection of Debbie Reynolds Part II on December 3 at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. Some include used equipment from Monroe in a singing role.
Earlier this year, the sale of iconic subway dress Marilyn Monroe in “The Seven Year Itch” exaggerated to 5.52 million, breaking the previous record for a movie costume sold at auction. Part II of the auction will have four suits Marilyn Monroe “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” Bus Stop “,” “Niagara” and “Let’s make love.”
From the auction house:
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is Monroe “Lorelei Lee” eggplant gray evening dress and a bolero jacket of William Travilla. This elegant two-piece is accented by two trains of eggplant satin flowing from the waist. Quite memorable worn by Miss Monroe for several scenes, from intelligent effort to remove her clothes and Elliot Reid, to seek, to be caught in the middle of a bull’s eye, requiring rescue by the younger her suitor, Mr. Henry, clothing and is expected to reach 150, 000 – 200,000.
Also designed by Travilla signature bodysuit is green and black short showgirl sequins, for the character of Marilyn “Cherie” in the bus stop (right). It looks one of the most iconic and indelible throughout her career, being better for advertising images of Marilyn up today. It is done deliberately naive version of “That Old Black Magic”, winning the heart of the handsome cowboy and looking forward and not played by Don Murray. This would be the last of the great collaborations between Marilyn and her favorite costume designer William Travilla. Is expected to seek and 200,000 – 300,000.
Falls is the light wetsuit designed by Dorothy Jeakins for her character “Rose Loomis.” This was a rather conservative look Marilyn, who was deliberately chosen by her unfaithful wife character of Joseph Cotten, compared with illicit encounter with her lover. Niagara Falls The indelible image of Marilyn’s hips swaying as she walks away in this form-fitted equipment is considered one of the great “sex in the movie” sequences released during the height of Production Code censorship and is expected to reach and 100,000 – 150,000.
Again, by Dorothy Jeakins is Marilyn “Amanda Dell” pale green strapless empire pleated silk to cut rhinestones Let’s make love (left). Designed to be unbearably sxy while doing more than censorship, which was used by the title number, in which Marilyn is offered in a stage of mid-century modern apartments from apartments rotation, first Frankie Vaughan then Yves Montand in her fantasy. And is expected to collect 200,000 – 300,000.
