    Tate’s chocolate mink swing coat

    Property from the collection of Sharon Tate will be offered by Julien’s auctions in Los Angeles on November 17.  The actress and model’s life and style embodied the essence of the swinging 60’s.  Her most famous role and acclaimed performance came as Jennifer North in the 1967 cult classic film Valley of the Dolls, which earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best New Actress. Her final film role was in The 13 Chairs, also known as 12+1, which was released posthumously in 1969.

    Highlights include a custom made chocolate slubbed silk dress attributed to William Travilla and worn by Tate while being interviewed on the 1968 documentary The New Cinema ($5,000-$7,000); a black floral lace Christian Dior mini dress worn to the London premiere of Roman Polanski’s Cul-de-Sac in 1966 ($15,000-$30,000); The chocolate sheer silk Alba gown worn at The Golden Globe Awards with Roman Polanski in 1968 ($4,000-$6,000); The ivory silk moiré mini wedding dress worn at her London wedding at the Chelsea Registry Office to Roman Polanski in 1968 ($25,000-$50,000); The green knit mini dress designed by Betsey Johnson for Paraphernalia worn at the Paris 1967 premiere of The Fearless Vampire Killers ($1,000-$2,000) and Tate’s chocolate mink swing coat designed by “Fuhrman’s Beverly Hills” with asymmetrical collar and fur puffs for buttons ($20,000-$40,000)
