    Description

    Edie Adams' Stage-Worn Costumes from Her Vegas Performances. The two pieces in this lot represent "the two faces of Edie." Edie often appeared on stage impersonating celebrities; Edie wore this first dress as part of her Jayne Mansfield skit (with knit white top studded with rhinestones and skirt of blue sequins). The second dress Edie wore as her own onstage persona, wearing this dress of intricately beaded design on gold chiffon (designed by Galanos for Amelia Gray). In waves of gold and opalescent bugle and seed beads, the shimmer is magnified with pendent clear mylar waves. Accompanied by Edie's press clipping featuring her in both pieces onstage at Harrah's Tahoe South Shore Room. Both lots are in Very Fine condition with minor bead loss. Accompanied by a hardcover copy of Edie Adams' autobiography, Sing a Pretty Song. From the Ernie Kovacs/Edie Adams Estate Archive.
