Once again, the famous California-based entertainment memorabilia auctioneer Julien's Auctions is gearing up to sell a treasure trove of classic Hollywood movie costumes and accessories.
Slated to take place from November 8 to 10, 2013, the event tagged as Icons & Idols: Hollywood will put up some 800 items, donned by the most memorable American stars in the most unforgettable films of all times, for sale. 
The to-be-auctioned costumes will include the Star Trek captain T. Kirk’s uniform, worn by actor William Shatner, Julie Andrew’s wedding dress from the 1965 film The Sound of Music, and a track suit sported by American actor James Gandolfini in the popular HBO television series The Sopranos.
Additionally, Marilyn Monroe’s nightgown with her name embroidered on it and a Catherine Walker dress (1990) created for Princess Diana will also be auctioned at the same event.
In addition to the above mentioned costumes, some 400 pieces, including dresses, awards and original costume sketches, collected from the estate of late American costume designer William Travilla will also be sold. 
The William Travilla designed ensembles will include a Seven Year Itch movie inspired gown, a Betty Grable chocolate silk dress worn in the How to Marry A Millionaire film and Marilyn Monroe’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes inspired gown featuring the gold lamé sunburst halter frock design.
Before the items hit the auction block, they will be displayed exclusively in Europe at Newbridge Silverware’s Museum of Style Icons in Ireland, and then would be returned to the US to be displayed at the Julien’s Auctions Gallery.
