This week, as part of a Pop Culture catalog, Elizabeth Taylor’s first wedding dress is set to be auctioned off. The auction will be at Christie’s in London, and the dress has a guide price of £30,000 to £50,000, or roughly $47,000 to $78,000.
The dress is a stunning piece of Hollywood history, and is considered one of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time. It was designed by MGM costume designer Helen Rose and features a built-in corset and plenty of pearl beading across the satin gown.
Taylor’s first wedding was to Conrad Hilton Jr. in May 1950 and was truly a star-studded event. It continues to inspire celebrity weddings, as well as any bride looking to capture the 1950s Hollywood style glamour for her big day.
