    Description

    Elizabeth Taylor "Cleopatra" coral gown by Irene Sharaff from Cleopatra. (TCF, 1963) Vintage original coral orange silk chiffon gown with sleeveless Trapunto bodice and pleated full-length skirt with side panels embellished with Eye of Horus, ankh, and djed pillar motif appliqué and embroidery in rust, orange, gold and silver bullion thread. With snap and zipper back closure. Retaining the internal 20th Century Fox bias label handwritten, "L. Taylor". This costume is visible in the scene preceding "Cleopatra's" (Taylor) entrance into Rome, where she begins to manipulate the narrative of being "invited" to attend Caesar's (Rex Harrison) being named Emperor. This Academy Award winning costume, designed by Irene Sharaff, exhibits minor age and production wear. In vintage fine condition.
