    Description

    Kim Novak 1989 Academy Awards Ceremony-Worn Dress. Kim Novak has always known how to make an impression, and she certainly did that when she appeared with her Vertigo co-star Jimmy Stewart at the 1989 Academy Awards. This sparkling gold lamé and black German velvet dress was a show stopper. The dress was custom-made for Ms. Novak with hooks and no zippers -- and was so form-fitting that her bra is sewn into the gown rather than worn separately. (Reportedly she was sewn into the outfit for the appearance.) Her black arm-length gloves are also included as well as a videotape of Novak wearing the dress at the awards ceremony. The gown and gloves are in Very Fine condition. From the Randy McLaughlin Costume Collection.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
