Elizabeth Taylor’s personal collection of art, jewelry, and wardrrobe are going on the road. For over three months, these artifacts will be on display with stops in Moscow, London, Dubai, Geneva, Paris, Hong Kong, and L.A. The tour will conclude at Christie’s Auction House in New York, where they will be sold in December.

Some of the top names in fashion – Gianni Versace, Valentino, and Gianfranco Ferre – designed the star’s  wardrobe including clothing, shoes, handbags, luggage, and accessories. Film memorabilia from Taylor’s Bel Air home, and some of her furniture will also be offered.

A followup auction of her own personal collection of impressionist and modern art takes place in February. Liz inherited works from her father, Francis Taylor, who was a professional art dealer. A portion of the proceeds from the exhibitions, admission, and any sales-related publications will be donated to Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (presumably decreed in her will).

Until next time>                               “never forget”
