Property From The Lifestyle of Elizabeth Taylor

This special, three-day event celebrates the luxurious lifestyle and singular career of one of the greatest Hollywood legends of all time, Elizabeth Taylor. On offer is a spectacular collection of her iconic fashions, film costumes and accessories, by designers Christian Dior, Edith Head, Gucci, Nolan Miller, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent and more, all worn by the three-time Academy Award-winning actress and humanitarian who dazzled the world with her ravishing beauty, larger than life celebrity persona, and fearless activism in the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Highlights of the auction will also include jewelry, wigs, fine/decorative art and household items from her residences around the world, as well as other pieces from her life and career.

In addition to her renowned career as one of Hollywood's greatest leading actresses and an international superstar, Taylor was also a successful businesswoman, ardent philanthropist and the first celebrity to launch her own perfume brand. She broke ground as one of the first and most influential celebrities to take part in HIV/AIDS activism, co-founding the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) in 1985 and establishing The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1991. For her philanthropic efforts, which included the Israeli War Victims Fund, the Variety Clubs International and other charities, Taylor received multiple honors, including the Presidential Citizens Medal, the French Legion of Honor and was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.  In 1993, she won a Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute (AFI) and that same year received her third Oscar, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, for her pioneering work in the fight against AIDS.  In 2011, Elizabeth Taylor died at the age of 79. 

In celebration of this momentous occasion, Julien's will be offering a beautiful, special edition three volume set of hardcover catalogues with a matching case.  

The Collector's Edition Catalogue Box Set
The Collector's Edition Catalogue Box Set, featuring three white linen hardcover catalogues with a silver/grey linen case, is priced at $400.

Limited Premium Collector's Edition Catalogue Box Set
The Limited Premium Collector's Edition Catalogue Box Set, featuring three smooth purple velvet hardcover catalogues with a striking purple velvet case, is priced at $1,000.  

This rare set will also include a limited edition photographic portrait print of Elizabeth Taylor, exclusive to this set.

100% of the proceeds from the sales of the Limited Premium Collector's Edition Catalogue will benefit The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF).  Elizabeth Taylor founded the ETAF in 1991 to raise funds and awareness to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS, and is celebrated as the first globally recognized celebrity HIV and AIDS activist.
