It's going to be an Elizabeth Taylor extravaganza in New York this December.

Christie's announced this week 68 iconic looks from Taylor's designer wardrobe will join the 269 pieces of jewelry that were already scheduled to be auctioned off between December 13th and 16th.

Christie's fashion curator said of the collection:

"This is not a red carpet wardrobe edited by stylists but a treasure trove of looks chosen by the last of the great movie stars. Many of the pieces in this lifetime collection were couture, custom made for Ms. Taylor by designers who became her close friends, including Valentino Garavani, Gianni Versace and Gianfranco Ferre."

Some of the items up for grabs include a Atelier Versace beaded evening jacket with portraits of the actress, a yellow Irene Sharaff dress that Taylor wore to her 1964 wedding to Richard Burton, a red Valentino Couture ball gown, Thierry Mugler suit and many more.

Hopefully all of Elizabeth's items find a good home!

Elizabeth Taylor's Jewels On Their Way To The Auction Block???

Filed under: Elizabeth TaylorJewelry

We're not sure how to feel about this.

Rumor has it Elizabeth Taylor's $150 million jewelry collection may be auctioned off at Christie's.

A rep from the auction house declined to comment, so for now it's all speculation.

We think they'd be better suited for a museum, but if they are sold hopefully the money will be donated to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.

Just a thought.

Elizabeth Taylor Leaves Much Of Her Fortune To AIDS Charity

Filed under: InspirationElizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was truly a generous woman.

She has left a bulk of her $600 million estate to two AIDS charities.

Her famous jewelry collection, worth an extraordinary $150 million, will be auctioned off and will be donated to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation and amfAR, the AIDS charity she helped found in 1985.

A financial planner commented on her fortune, saying, "From what I understand, she seems to have been very wise about her investments."

Dame Elizabeth was known to have been avid collector of jewelry, antiques, and art.

So inspiring.
