Liz Taylor's wedding dress auction

By

May 28, 2013

Elizabeth Taylor's first wedding dress consisted of 25 yards of shell-white satin, 15 yards of satin train, an inbuilt corset, 10 yards of silk veil and bugle beads and tiny seed pearls that adorned the gown.

It is estimated to have taken 15 seamstresses two to three months to complete the dress, which is said to be so intricate that it could not be replicated. It will be sold at Christie's in London on June 26 as part of the auction house's 'Pop Culture' sale and is expected to fetch in the region of 50,000 pounds.
