#4349 - c. early 1960's Iconic Custom Cream Sequin and Silk Satin Sequined Trimmed in Black Sequins Sailor Evening Suit!  Comes with COA Signed by Barbra!  From Barbra's 2004 Auction to benefit her Streisand Foundation, comes this incredible, iconic evening sailor outfit!!!  This 2-piece gown is from the same era as those Barbra wore during her first concert at the Cocoanut Grove and on the Judy Garland Show... only this one is fancier! I'm not sure exactly where she wore it, but it's certainly something with enough research you will likely find out for yourself.   So rare to find any Streisand pieces available.  Even more rare to find one SO identifiable as "Barbra Streisand".  Cream silk satin long skirt with sexy 22" side slit and rear zipper.  Meant to be hidden grosgrain waistband is slightly boned. Matching cream silk sailor style "v" neck top heavily embellished with cream and black sequins featuring an affixed decorative sequined tie and upper front snap closure and side zipper.  Both pieces weighted at bottom hems, so perhaps wore for outdoor concert???  White lining.  There is sequin losses (auction called it minor sequin lose, but it's most than I'd like. Also the sequins on one sleeve are slightly warped, or melted like Barbra got too close to a hot stage light!). Still in Excellent condition for a rare museum piece.  Wearable if you must. Please be careful, and treat with museum respect.  But heck,  if you are hosting a Streisand event, it's a must! Measures:  Skirt: 26" waist, up to 38" hips, 42" long.  Top:  up to 36/37" bust.  Note:  it's creamier than shown in photos.  NOTE: Barbra Streisand's Superman T-shirt (yes folks... a T-shirt!) sold for $6,000 and the signature sailor top (just the top) at left sold for $28,800!!  At another auction at Christie's in May 2007, a two-piece orange gown from "Funny Girl" sold for $33,600!   Also Listed in the Museum and Memorabilia Categories.

Previously on loan for display at the:   The Hollywood Museum, Los Angeles

AUTHENTIC - BARBRA STREISAND
CECIL BEATON Designed Gown

SOLD
#4343 - c. 1970 Extremely Rare CECIL BEATON Designed Gown and Shawl for "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever" Purchased from the Collection of BARBRA STREISAND! The Paramount movie was released in 1970, starring Barbra Streisand with costumes designed by the legendary Cecil Beaton. This gown, along with some others, was cut from the final film to the great dismay of Mr. Beaton.  "Cecil Beaton expressed disappointment that some of his exquisite gowns were cut from the final film. “Now I see the film and see the appalling waste due to the fact that no one had prepared a proper script,” he wrote in his diaries. “One whole ballroom sequence with B.S. in dark red satin, and all the others in specious stoned velvets, has been cut. B.S’s best dress cut, many scenes cut, and the laying down of cobbles in Lansdowne Crescent (Brighton) and the hedges especially built, all unnecessary, all cut. If Alan Lerner had delivered a carefully considered script, many hundreds of thousands of dollars would have been saved … It may be said that I was well paid for the job and that is all I should worry about. But that isn’t the whole story. I really sweated to see that things were perfect, and that is the only way I can work. But if another job arrives along that I don’t really believe in, will I remember the lesson of On a Clear Day? I rather doubt it.”One has to assume that Cecile Beaton was talking about THIS gown as "B.S's Best Dress" as this is the one Cecil decided to photograph! Deep red silk velvet full length empire style gown with train, having attached nude silk under dress, featuring seven oval shaped cutouts revealing underdress, edged with gold bugle beading and decorative gold metallic thread flowers. "Paramount" label with handwritten notation "Barbra Streisand". The gown is accompanied by a matching long velvet shawl, ends featuring large, full double tassels. Snap hook and eye closures. Built in bra label reads "Saks Fifth Avenue". The photos of Barbra wearing this gown were taken by Cecil Beaton! A postcard of the photo accompanies this gown, as well as the COA. Very Good Condition with occasional loose threading, a few tiny holes at lower front. Cape is Excellent condition. Measures: 33/34" bust (A cup bra), up to 32" waist, 58" long from shoulder to hem, 110" x 22" long scarf with 7" tassles. NOTE: the Cecil Beaton Audrey Hepburn ascot gown from "My Fair Lady" sold recently for $3.4 million! Oh, and Barbra Streisand's Superman T-shirt (yes folks... a T-shirt!) sold for $6,000, her "Owl and the Pussycat" outfit sold for $15,600, and her signature sailor top sold for $28,800!! At another auction at Christie's in May, 2007, a two-piece orange gown from "Funny Girl" sold for $33,600! Also Listed in the Museum and Memorabilia Categories.

NOTE: Cecil Beaton's original sketch of another of Barbra's "On a Clear Day" outfits sold at auction for $3,500! And that's just the sketch!

AUTHENTIC - BARBRA STREISAND
Owned and Worn at 1968 Oscars

SOLD
#7265 - c. 1968 BARBRA STREISAND Worn at the OscarsThis is the ACTUAL AUTHENTIC (and likely one-of-a-kind) gown worn by Barbra Streisand on April 10, 1968 at the Oscars Academy Awards Ceremony, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, California.  Ms. Streisand presented the Oscar award for Best Song.  American singer and actor Sammy Davis Jr. (1925-1990) posed with Barbra as he accepted the Oscar on behalf of Leslie Bricusse, who received the award for the song 'Talk to The Animals' from the film, 'Doctor Doolittle.'   I'm not sure who the designer was... there is no label as it was custom made, but I have to assume it was Arnold Scaasi as Barbra wore many of his pieces and this has that Scaasi look. It's a black velvet horizontal stripes on netting with rhinestones of various sizes scattered all over. You can see that all the rhinestones are placed exactly where they are in the photos of Barbra's dress.... which is just an additional confirmation that this is "the" dress.  There is also an attached numbered tag... presumed from an old auction. The dress is sheer, and has a nude lining attached underneath.  The gown is quite structured, and as you can see... quite low cut at the bustline and underarms.   Measures:  32" bust, up to 27" waist, up to 37" hips, 58" long from shoulder to hem.   Excellent condition with just a pulling of the dress away from the zipper at the back waist... a simple fix!  Inside you can see a light "B. Streis" hand-written on the upper back lining. Also Listed in the Museum and Memorabilia Categories.

SOLD
#6734 - c. 1990's DONNA KARAN by MAEVE CARR Gray Cashmere/Wool Bare Shoulder Gown Previously Owned and Worn by BARBRA STREISAND!  I haven't seen any other Donna Karan / Maeve Carr pieces... except if you Google search you will see another sold at the Barbra Streisand Julien's auction, so obviously Babs (being the Karan devotee she is) wore some of these rare pieces. I know I should have put this on the mannequin with arms, but she is a pain in the neck to set up, so please just image arms in those dangling sleeves! :)  Glorious fine cashmere/wool blend gown with turtleneck, bare shoulders, low slung waistline and massive exquisitely draped skirt! AND with internal bodysuit!!  Not in perfect condition as there are two small moth holes at mid-side skirt and larger one under hem (not seen except in my photos). This kind of knit can be invisibly mended to make this look nearly perfect.  Back invisible zipper. Measures:  60" long from shoulder to hem in front and 65" long on sides.. yes, this is one of those gowns with sides longer than front and back to give that sweep and still let you walk!  Nearly impossible to measure otherwise, as it stretches, but it's about a size 4/6.  Comes with a COA from StarWares. Incredible on!    Also Listed in the 1930-Today and Memorabilia Categories.
