AUTHENTIC - CAROL CHANNING /
BOB MACKIE "Diamonds" Dress

[ORDER ITEM #3300]

#3300 - c. 1975 Original BOB MACKIE Silver Beaded Fringe Dress Worn by CAROL CHANNING!  First off, I love what I found online... 

Carol wore many of her pieces multiple times, and had certain "iconic" designs that she would wear over and over again! In 2007, someone robbed Carol of her original, most famous 1974 Bob Mackie "Diamonds" dress that she wore on stage in Gentleman Prefer Blondes, which was valued at $150,000!!  Luckily the dress was recovered and returned to Ms. Channing and has since gone to the Smithsonian.  So she obviously values these dresses highly!!!  As for this Bob Mackie Diamonds dress, the sketch for the shorter version of this dress designed for the 1974 Broadway production of Lorelie sold at auction for $960! (the sketch only!)!  Condition is Good... amazing for such a heavy dress!  The netting at the shoulders is a bit torn under and the dress weighs a ton (OK, I'm slightly exaggerating!).   NEW LISTING!   MORE PHOTOS COMING....

#3293 - RARE!!!!!  c. 1975 Original CAROL CHANNING Worn Complete Costume with Headpiece from the 1975 Tony Awards Telecast!  An Early BOB MACKIE and RAY AGHAYAN Costume! Grace Costumes, NY Tag with Carol Channing's Hand-written Name!  Unbelievable complete costume worn by Carol Channing on the 1975 Tony Awards Show!  YES, the headpiece comes with it... I just didn't get to photograph it yet as I don't have the right mannequin head, but you can see it on Carol!  It's wild!!   Carol Channing was a presenter at the Tony awards that year which took place at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC...  and so to salute that historic theater, she took the opportunity to make fun of herself!  Carol wore this outfit that was an overblown version of the vampy costumes she wore for her only Broadway flop entitled The Vamp only running 60 performances from Nov. 10 through Dec. 31, 1955 at the Winter Garden Theater. Check out the funny YouTube clip of her speech while wearing this outfit complete with elaborate headpiece!!  There is no Bob Mackie tag, but this costume has the same hoop shape as the Barbra Streisand Bob Mackie Funny Lady costume I also have for sale from the same year!!  This item DOES come with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) from the Carol Channing auction... though you barely need it with the YouTube video as ironclad authenticity.  I mean... I can guarantee you that there aren't two of these costumes out there!!  :)  Mr. Mackie had just worked with Ms. Channing on her Broadway play, Lorelei  in 1974. Four piece set of fuchsia metallic chiffon lined in gold netting, edged with silver beads, rhinestones and gold bullion trim with huge faux pearls. Sleeveless dress with hoop skirt.  The sleeves (elastic top) and pantaloons (elastic waist with metal zip back) are both separate. Finally comes WITH the wild headpiece with six stiff "curls" and large ornament at front. Excellent condition, near MINT condition!!  Very well constructed!  Huge head size as is... headpiece closes with velcro at back!!  Ready to ... wear???? :)  Measures:  36" bust (includes easily removable old hardened cup padding) 26-30" waist (hidden elastic), 23" long sleeves, 44" long pantaloons (Carol is TALL!). You'll never see another... after Bjork's swan dress, no one is willing to actually have fun at the any of the awards shows! How boring we all are these days!!!!!  FYI, Bob Mackie's Whoopie Goldberg Academy Awards "Queen Elizabeth I" gown sold at auction for $22,800!!!  NOTE:  Likely quite expensive to ship overseas due to size and shape of box.

By Bob Mackie

[ORDER ITEM - #3281]

#3281 - c. 1960's Magnificent 2-piece Performance Costume owned and worn by CAROL CHANNING Designed by BOB MACKIE! Amazingly...Carol Channing just called me (really!!) to buy back this elaborate red sequin lined white satin coat which was worn during the "Carol Channing and Pearl Bailey" television special. SO... it's the fully sequined micro-miniskirt (with sexy slit) and fully sequined tunic with attached mega beaded belt with long beaded fringe, which is still available. I asked Carol where she wore the miniskirt outfit, and she said it was for another TV special sometime between 1968-1973 (during the time of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In) . All pieces were designed by Bob Mackie specifically for Carol Channing. The costume was professionally dry cleaned prior to my purchase. Excellent condition for a performance outfit!!!! Carol Channing is back! She was just awarded the FIRST sidewalk star on New York City's new "Broadway Walk of Fame", won the first "Oscar Hammerstein Award" for Lifetime Achievement in Musical Theater, and is back out performing! I have a few other Carol Channing wardrobe and costumes coming up soon for sale. All came directly from Carol through auction. Guaranteed original. Just ask Carol!! :) The tunic measures 34-37" bust (stretches), and up to 36" hips (best for smaller),  length is 30" from shoulder to bottom,  sleeve measures 32" from back of midneck down over shoulder to end of sleeve.  Skirt measures 20.5" long from waist to hem, and waist measures 25/26".... the hips are open as the skirt is a wrap and is meant to be open (a lot!) on the leg under the long beaded piece. Skirt also has a sequin buckle at the waist. MUSEUM QUALITY. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) signed by Ms. Carol Channing.

$ 3500. for Mini-skirt and Tunic (sorry, coat is sold!)
NOTE: Coat was purchased back by Carol Channing herself !!

AUTHENTIC - Carol Channing / Bob Mackie

SOLD on LAYAWAY
#3287 - c. 1960's CAROL CHANNING's Red Winter Military Costume Jacket Designed by BOB MACKIE! Fine Hollywood Memorabilia piece by the Master, Bob Mackie and worn by Carol Channing! This red military jacket features gold velvet cuffs and brass buttons and zips up the back for quick costume change. It is a very heavy-weight winter jacket, designed not to show the warmth, so it was likely worn for an outside concert - she looked like a real trooper out in the cold without wearing a coat... but trust me, she was warm! Comes with original COA (Certificate of Authenticity) from TreasureQuest Auction Galleries and signed by Carol Channing. Very Good condition with just some wear to the the gold braiding at neckline / epaulets as shown. Tassel at back zipper allows for easy zip down.

#3295 & #3296 - c. 1970's CAROL CHANNING's  TWO Matching Red Silk Gowns Attributed to Hollywood Designer ORRY-KELLY!   Two... Two... Two gowns!  Yup... Often movies have more than one piece exactly the same incase something happens to the first.  So.. this was probably from a Carol Channing movie, but I have no idea from what. Sorry.  These came to me as "Orry-Kelly" gowns, but there are no labels... and the each have a few spots.  SO... I'm selling inexpensively and if you spend the time to find the movie.. you win!!!!  Once you know the movie, you will know the costume designer of that movie and voila!
