“`Film buffs may remember the slender ivory dress Judy Garland was wearing when she sang In Your Easter Bonnet in the movie Easter Parade, which she starred with Fred Astaire in 1948. Now, they shall be able to buy that dress (and other artifacts) for an estimate $4,000 to $6,000, while cruising the Atlantic on an upcoming Cunard voyage from Manhattan to Southampton, England, aboard the Queen Mary 2. The August 12th – 19th transatlantic crossing will pay homage to the Hollywood icon,  and showcase the largest collection of her costumes to ever go on auction.

“`Other items will include a suitcase Garland brought when she sailed with Cunard and other costumes, such as the organdy and satin dress she wore while performing Born in a Trunk, from the 1954 Warner Bros. film A Star is Born; and a red velvet, turn-of-the-last-century ball gown Garland wore while singing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas in the 1944 MGM production Meet Me in St. Louis.

“`They are from the collection of Michael Siewert, who has collected Judy Garland memorabilia since he was a child; The sale is being conducted by Julien’s Auctions.

“`Inside cabins for the week-long sailing start $649 per person, double occupancy.
