A PLACE IN THE SUN
HOLLYWOOD HISTORY GOES UNDER THE HAMMER AT CHRISTIE’S NEW YORK WITH A CAVALCADE OF COUTURE FROM ELIZABETH TAYLOR’S WARDROBE
Feisty, fearless, flawless, are just some of the qualities that contour the memory of legendary Hollywood actress and glamazon Elizabeth Taylor. If her multiple marriages and controversial dalliances with conservative cults stoked curiosity and public murmur, her breathtaking collection of clothes, jewellery and accessories raised even more brows. At a landmark auction starting December 14, Christie’s will showcase the Icon and
