Site Review: New Line Cinema's Online Auction
November 14, 2005
After seeing Audrey Hepburn wear that amazing dress in the Embassy Ball scene of “My Fair Lady,” I had to have that gown for my wedding. I doggedly pursued every source I could but eventually resigned myself to having my own version made. If you, like me, have ever gone on an unfruitful bender looking for the exact dress worn on film by your favorite movie star, you’ll be thrilled to know New Line Cinema operates its own online auction of film wardrobe items and props. I find this exceedingly cool. Even cooler: New Line, the studio that released Lord of the Rings, Austin Powers and The Notebook, donates a portion of the auction proceeds to charity. While the selection isn’t overwhelming, you’ll find items that would be tough to locate otherwise. You can bid on Maria Bello’s suede Roots jacket worn in “A History of Violence,” starting at $122 as of this writing. OK, so that’s not exactly a chick flick. If, instead, you prefer Rachel McAdams’ halter dress from “Wedding Crashers,” you can bid on that too. Find these film wardrobe pieces and more at newline.com.
