Buy Something That Belonged to Hollywood Royalty
When I was a kid Elizabeth Taylor was classic Hollywood with a twist. Me being a horse girl I knew her from the movie National Velvet. Of as I got older she became the woman who was just a bit wild, had amazing jewelry and to be honest, a lot of husbands. I actually joke that Liz Taylor wore cowboy boots at her last wedding because I made it fashionable at my first.
If you are a fan of Hollywood glamor like I am and you happen to have a few hundred thousand dollars laying around I just found the perfect thing to do with your money. You can own a one of a kind piece of Hollywood history and go on vacation to preview what you want to buy. Architectural Digest online has just revealed the details of an auction for items that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor and how you can take a cruise to preview what will be sold.
According to AD online Liz Taylor was a fan of Cunard Luxury Cruise Line so they were happy to offer up the Queen Mary 2 as the venue for the auction preview. Julien's Auctions has teamed with Cunard to offer the exclusive preview to their guest cruising to Southampton England on the October 18th transatlantic crossing. The actual auction will take place December 6th through the 8th. In 2011 Liz's jewels brought in about $116 million dollars at a Christie's auction.
According to AD one of the items that will be at the preview and will be part of the auction is a Versace biker jacket that Liz wore on the Tonight show with Johnny Carson. If I had the money that is the item i'd be buying.
