Baku, November 27, AZERTAC

1,000 priceless items from Elizabeth Taylor's estate are going up for auction, from one-of-a-kind fashions and intimate accessories to homewares, including a $20,000 gilt LAMP.

The holiday season came early for fans of style icon Elizabeth Taylor, as her house, which protects the actress` legacy, prepares to put 1,000 luxury items of her collection up for auction.

Julien`s Auctions partnered with House of Taylor for a three-day auction starting on December 6 to celebrate the late actress` legacy by selling iconic clothing, jewelry, and other pieces from her life.

Items to be sold during the three days include film costumes and clothing from luxury designers like Christian Dior, Edith Head, Gucci, and Oscar de la Renta, as well as several unique personal items that were owned by Taylor, who passed away in March 2011 from congestive heart failure at the age of 79.

The event Property From the Lifestyle of Elizabeth Taylor will take place in Beverly Hills, California, and online for fans to bid on the hundreds of different items from the icon`s collection.

Taylor rose in fame as a child actress in the 1940s before landing a number of prominent roles in the 50s and 60s, including her part as Cleopatra.

The UK-born actress-turned-humanitarian continued to make her mark on the Hollywood industry into the 90s when she was named the seventh-greatest female screen legend by the American Film Institute.
