Elizabeth Taylor's First Wedding Dress Can Be Yours!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFashion SmashionElizabeth TaylorWedding WaltzAuction Block

eilzabeth taylor first wedding dress conrad hilton auction

If you’ve always wanted to walk down the aisle in Elizabeth Taylor's wedding dress, then you’re in luck!

Next month, Christie’s is auctioning off the very first wedding gown Liz ever wore when she tied the knot with Conrad Hilton Jr. on May 6, 1950 at the tender age of 18.

Created by costume designer Helen Rose and gifted to the legendary actress from MGM, the shell-white satin gown is embellished with seed pearls and bugle beads, boasts a 15-yard train and features a built-in corset to give Taylor a 20 inch waist.


The wedding gown is expected to fetch at least $75,175 when it hits the auction block on June 26th in London, but based on previous Elizabeth Taylor auctions, we wouldn't be surprised if it sold for MUCH more than that.

And if you can't get your hands on Elizabeth's first gown, don't worry! She walked down the aisle 7 other times, so it's only a matter of time before they hit the auction block too.

Jessica Chastain Ascends The Cleopatra Throne At Cannes

| Filed under: Film FlickersFashion SmashionFrancophiliaElizabeth TaylorJessica ChastainCannesRed CarpetVersaceBulgari

Jessica Chastain is a bonafide QUEEN at the Cleopatra premiere at Cannes!

That's it, we give up. Jessica Chastain wins everything!

The actress rarely disappoints with her fashion choices, and when she really turns it out, she knocks the wind out of us!

You'd think it'd be illegal to be this FAB!!!

Ariel's doppelgänger was the empress of the Cleopatra premiere at Cannes on Tuesday, looking STELLAR in a creamy and luscious white Versace Collection gown with sweeping cape-train, AKA, a cape that turns into a train.


A large sapphire and diamond Bvlgari necklace worthy of Elizabeth Taylor (and previously owned by her!) was just what the doctor ordered.

Priceless, just like those jewels.

Who let the dogs, err, dog out?

Drew Barrymore!

The new mom was totally bitchin' in Beverly Hills last night at Bvlgari celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's collection.

Drew sicked the purple carpet in a black and white MaxMara Resort jumpsuit the provided the perfect backdrop for her multi-colored Bvlgari necklace.

As blinding as Miz Barrymore's bling may be, we're all about her Givenchy Rottweiler clutch.

Very grr, baby!

Kirsten Dunst Is Drab, Not Fab, In Beverly Hills

Kirsten Dunst attends the Elizabeth Taylor Bvlgari exhibit in Beverly Hills


Kirsten Dunst looked noticeably lackluster at the exhibit for Elizabeth Taylor's Bvlgari collection in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Though she wore a sophisticated black one-shoulder Chloe dress and carried a beautiful jeweled clutch, the actress's hair and makeup were totally ho-hum.

Her up 'do looked like a last-minute decision and though we appreciate the natural look, Kirsten's makeup did not accentuate her gorgeous features at all.

She needs some color on those cheeks STAT!

Do U like Kirsten's look???

Naomi Watts Keeps Warm For Bvlgari

Naomi Watts wears Roland Mouret to Bulgari’s Celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's Collection

Even though it was a rare, rainy El Lay night, celebs still came out in force for Bvlgari's celebration of the Elizabeth Taylor collection on Tuesday, including Naomi Watts.

With her blonde curly locks swept over her shoulder, Naomi kept warm in a Theyskens’ Theory coat worn over a black Roland Mouret dress.

Rupert Sanderson heels, a purple Reece Hudson bag and apropos Bvlgari ruby tassel necklace were her accessories of choice.

We've definitely seen better from Naomi, but we're guessing she's saving all her fashionable energy for Sunday night!

Julianne Moore Wears Elizabeth Taylor's Jewels In Beverly Hills

Julianne Moore wears Alexander McQueen to Elizabeth Taylors Bvlgari exhibit

Has Julianne Moore made a pact with the devil or something?

'Cause she sure as hell doesn't look like any 52-year-old we've EVER seen!


The exquisite redhead made an appearance at the celebration of Elizabeth Taylor's Bvlgari jewelry collection in Beverly Hills on Tuesday looking like a million bucks in a strapless red Alexander McQueen dress.

Her simple, knee-length number was the perfect choice for the event as she also wore the late actress's ridiculously GAWRGEOUS emerald and diamond necklace and a more ostentatious outfit would've taken away from its impact.

Although we're not sure ANYTHING in the world could make you keep your eyes off that insane bling!

Holy moly!

We're not crazy about her nude Christian Louboutin pumps, but it's safe to say nobody's looking at her feet. Ha!

The entire collection will be available for viewing this week in a lead-up to the 85th annual Academy Awards.
