Scarlett O’Hara’s gown just sold for enough money to buy herself some new curtains. The grey-and-black dress, worn by Vivien Leigh in her role as the Southern heroine in Gone with the Wind, sold for $137,000 at an auction in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
The outfit, which O’Hara wore in four scenes from the 1939 film, features distinctive black zig-zag appliques along the front placard and sleeves. The gown was fittingly the belle of the ball at the auction of more than 150 items from the Oscar-winning film by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions.
