Elizabeth Taylor's wardrobe to be auctioned

Designer clothes owned by Elizabeth Taylor, including haute couture by Chanel, Yves St. Laurent and Dior, will be sold at auction in New York, Christie's said Wednesday, Reuters reports.

The silk chiffon dress that the Academy Award-winning actress wore for her first wedding to actor Richard Burton will be among the nearly 400 items included in the four-day series of sales in December.

"One of the many great treasures within Elizabeth Taylor's vast collection is her extraordinarily well-preserved wardrobe," said Marc Porter, chairman and president of Christie's Americas.

"The stunning outfits she wore to galas, award ceremonies, AIDS benefits and even her own weddings to Richard Burton are all here, lovingly maintained along with the handbags, shoes, hats and other accessories that completed her superstar looks," he added in a statement.

The Dec. 13-16 sales, which span over 50 years of fashion, will follow a global three-month tour that will also include Taylor's renowned jewelry, fine art and memorabilia. It will be the second in a series of auctions from the estate of the legendary film star, who died in March.
