Debbie Reynolds

On Saturday, June 18, antiques dealer Profiles in History will be auctioning off selected items from legendary silver screen star Debbie Reynolds' iconic costume collection. Ms. Reynolds began acquiring these visual jewels back in 1970, when MGM studio opened the doors to its treasured wardrobe department and began to sell its contents. Through the years, she has added even more items through private sales, amassing one of the largest privately owned "fashion from film" collections.  Considered to be more than just movie memorabilia, these truly special pieces - gowns, accessories, etc - handcrafted, with exquisite detail, are the living artifacts of a by gone Hollywood era.  The sale will be held at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, CA, starting at 12:00 noon.  Check out some of the pieces offered below and click here to read more from the Wall Street Journal.
