Property from the Randi Rahm Archive, an exclusive collection of iconic couture gowns worn by Hollywood’s elite, such as Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera, will be up for auction next month.
Julien’s Auctions announced Wednesday (Nov. 18) that Rahm’s signature styles that have graced the covers of magazines and waltzed down red carpets will be available for bidding Dec. 2-3, both live from Beverly Hills and online.
The top items featured in the auction include Beyoncé’s nude fringe embellished dress she wore to first lady Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday bash in 2014 (estimated $3,000 to $5,000), Mariah Carey’s orchid and gray twisted halter silk dress from her 2005 “We Belong Together” music video (estimated $2,000 to $4,000), and Christina Aguilera’s black satin crepe gown from the 2007 Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Awards party (estimated $2,000 to $4,000).
