    The Young and Restless Screen-Worn Wedding Dress. This beautiful wedding dress was worn by actress Melody Thomas Scott when she played former stripper-turned-society maven character Nikki Reed on The Young and the Restless. The 1983 season of the show saw Nikki wed business tycoon Victor Newman, played by Eric Brandon, in a media-event soap opera wedding. This exquisite gown required 15 workers and a total of 500 man-hours to create. It has 25 yards of imported French silk-faced satin as well as 45 yards of imported French organza. The dress features a 10'-long train and a royal crown which trails 15'. Decorated with hand-appliquéd lace, the gown was entirely hand-beaded. After being worn on The Young And The Restless this stunning outfit was displayed at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. Included is a b&w 8" X 10" still of Melody Thomas Scott in the wedding dress with the two costume designers Jerry Skeels and Randy McLaughlin. The designers were written into the script to play themselves for the episode. A copy of Soap Opera Digest magazine featuring an article about the television wedding and the creation of the dress, as well as a videotape of the episode, is included in this lot. The dress is in Fine condition. From the Randy McLaughlin Costume Collection. Requires third party shipping.
