Taylor's Cleopatra cape to be auctioned
The intricate piece, which the superstar wore for two scenes in the 1963 epic, will go up for sale at an auction in Texas on 30 May (12).
The garment is designed to look like the wings of a phoenix and features strips of gold leather and thousands of beads.
Bids will start at £6,250 at the sale, held by Heritage Auctions.
Taylor's on-screen costumes have become big business since her death last year (11) - a wig she also sported in Cleopatra made £10,000 at a sale in December (11).
