Marry in Elizabeth Taylor’s Wedding Dress – will have been sold

All comments()

Her first wedding dress, which she wore when marrying hotel heir Conrad “Nicky” Hilton Junior in 1950, has sold at the British auction house Christie’s for £121,875 (close to $187,000).  The winning bid was phoned in by an unknown patron, doubling the estimated amount expected. The long-sleeved, high-necked dress is expected to reach up to £50,000. The dress was worn in 1950 by the then 18-year-old Taylor, when she married Hilton Hotel’s founder Conrad Hilton. The wedding was a grand affair, with 700 guests including Hollywood A-listers Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. The dress itself was made by MGM costume designer Helen Rose. The shell-white gown, with a tiny 20” waist, is decorated with bugle beads, seed pearls and has an in-built corset. It had a 15 yard satin train on the big day. Apparently, it took 15 seamstresses between two to three months to create, designed so intricately that accurate replicas could not be produced.
