Today is Liza‘s birthday. Happy birthday!
Over 1,000 lots from the personal and professional life of real-life Hollywood royalty are going up for auction in Love, Liza: The Auction in L.A. which will also include items from her parents, Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli. Liza said,
“Throughout my long career I have collected wonderful possessions and memorabilia and now I’ve reached a point in my life where I want to simplify and share with my fans who have always been there for me. Without their unending love and support, none of this would have been possible. I hope my fans will be thrilled to not only have a chance to own a piece of my history but also that of my mother and father — Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli.”
The auction will span Liza’s entire career in film, TV, stage and recordings. Highlights include photographs by Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz and David LaChapelle. Also included will be Liza’s 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow sedan, a $20,000 check to Warhol and the iconic “Sally Bowles” look from Cabaret. An extensive showcase of custom fashions by her late pal, Halston are included plus a special room in the exhibit dedicated to Liza’s relationship with him and Studio 54 days.
The public will get a ochance to see all the highlights at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, April 4 – April 29. The auction itself will be in May.
