    Shirley MacLaine's Terms of Endearment Costume Dress. This beautifully flowing dress was designed for MacLaine's Oscar-winning performance as Aurora in the 1983 film Terms of Endearment, though the scene was cut from the film. The full-skirted floor-length dress with gathered sleeves, cowl neck, and self-covered sash was designed by Kristie Zia in a large floral print crepe chiffon, and was previously auctioned at Butterfield & Butterfield. In Fine condition, both the sash and dress bear Western Costume Co. labels, each printed "Shirley MacLaine S-73", while two are labeled "Kristie Zia" and one "Terms of Endearment".
