Elvis Presley’s wearing his Iconic White Jumpsuit
Elvis Presley's iconic white suit and cape, as well as other artifacts once belonging to the late artist, are up for auction.
According to femalefirst.co.uk, the 'Jailhouse Rock' hitmaker wore the white eyelet jumpsuit and cape designed by Bill Belew for a string of events at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1972, and the costume is now up for auction.
On Saturday, Kruse GWS Auctions will open live bidding on the jumpsuit, which has an opening price of $350,000, and the cape, which has an opening bid of $50,000.
A collection of Presley's hair saved by the singer's barber, the helmet he wore in 'Viva Las Vegas,' and a Bible given to him by a fan are among the items up for auction.
One lucky fan will have the chance to have a private lunch with Presley's ex wife, Priscilla Presley, in Beverly Hills, who is delighted that her former husband's items will be going to good homes.
She told People magazine: "I thought, 'Why not be a part of it?' I used to have a different opinion about these estate sales, but then as I got older I realised that you have to pass these things down to someone who'll really appreciate them."
The auctioneers are ecstatic to have the 'Naked Gun' actress participate in the sale.
Kruse GWS founder Brigitte Kruse said: "She's just such a wealth of experience and knowledge. You don't study and learn about Elvis without learning about Priscilla as well. Their names are synonymous."
In honour of the actress' late mother Ann, who died last month, a portion of the revenues from the meal's auction will go to an organisation that helps terminally ill adults and their families.
Dame Elizabeth Taylor's maroon dress from 'National Velvet,' Marilyn Monroe's black sleeveless 'wiggle' gown, a red scarf and a red crystal bottle once possessed by Jimi Hendrix, and Les Paul's personal guitar case, which carried the first of his eponymous instruments in 1952, are among the other items in the sleeve.
