ELIZABETH TAYLOR'S WEDDING DRESS COULD RAKE IN $75,000 AT AUCTION

Celebrities get married, divorced, and remarried all the time nowadays, but the great Elizabeth Taylor puts them all to shame. The glamorous actress was infamous for her numerous marriages — eight, to be exact. Movie stars just aren’t what they used to be, huh? Well, now a lucky (and rich) someone will be able to own the starlet’s first wedding dress when it goes up for auction at Christie’s in London on June 26.

Taylor wore the satin gown at her wedding to Conrad Hilton in 1950 when she was only 18 years old. Designed by Helen Rose, the custom-made dress is a relic of Old Hollywood, embellished with beading and complete with a 15-yard train. Unsurprisingly, the dress has a huge price tag — according to a Christie’s press release, it’s expected to go for upwards of £30,000 – 50,000 (or $75,000) at auction. For some reason, I doubt that Taylor’s most recent portrayer, Lindsay Lohan, will be putting in a bid.
