Some of Cher's most iconic outfits could be yours. The music legend's iconic Bob Mackie-designed 1974 Academy Awards silk ensemble—a cape, bandeau top with a scarf, and low-waisted layered skirt— is up for auction at Julien's, as part of the Icons and Idols: Hollywood, Street and Contemporary Art auction, according to a press release from the famed auction house.
In addition, a spaghetti strapped jersey gown worn on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour (estimate: $3,000–$5,000) is up for grabs as are two other outfits from the 1970s variety show the singer starred in with her then-husband Sonny Bono, including a marigold jersey jumpsuit (estimate: $3,000–$5,000) and a large Mother Goose costume worn by the "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" singer in a famous skit with Better Midler.
The auction of Mackie's designs also includes iconic outfits worn by Carol Burnett on The Carol Burnett Show, where Mackie worked in the 1960s and where he first met Cher, who later hired him to create outfits for her on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour.
"Oddly enough, they're so different and yet there're so many things about the two of them that are exactly the same. They're both smart and both have great instincts, and yet they were the same exact size. You'd never think they had the same figure. If Carol thought it would be too naked, she'd be, 'Nnnnaaa.' Cher, she'd put anything on."
