LOS ANGELES, CA.- Julien’s Auctions, the world-record breaking auction house, will celebrate the beauty and style of one of Hollywood’s most promising actresses and 1960s fashion icon with Propert from the Collection of Sharon Tate, taking place Saturday, November 17 live in Los Angeles and online at

Known as one of Hollywood’s most magnetic stars of the era, actress and model Sharon Tate’s life and style embodied the very essence of the decade now known as the swinging 60’s. Tate was amongst the celebrities that influenced the sights and sounds of that era’s culture, joining the likes of Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy.

Born in 1943 in Dallas, Texas as the daughter of a career military officer, Tate was destined for stardom, winning beauty contests before she was a year old which continued through her teens. After being noticed in the streets of Verona, Italy, she was cast in the epic film Barrabbas in 1961, as well as a Pat Boone television special. She was noticed by production staff in Italy for the filming of Hemingway’s Adventures of a Young Man (1962). Tate landed her first big acting role in 1963 as the bank secretary Janet Trego in the popular television series "The Beverly Hillbillies" (CBS 1963-1965). Tate was signed by Filmways and her first major starring role was in the 1966 occult classic Eye of the Devil.

Tate was then cast in director Roman Polanski’s film The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967) where the two fell in love. They married in London in January 1968 in a wedding ceremony that included a star-studded after party at The Playboy Club with guests that included John and Juliet Mills, Joan Collins, Candice Bergen, Michael Caine, Terry Downes and more. Her other prominent roles included the comedy beach farce Don’t Make Waves (1967) and the spy spoof The Wrecking Crew (1968) with Dean Martin and Elke Sommer.

Her most famous role and acclaimed performance came as Jennifer North in the 1967 cult classic film Valley of the Dolls, which earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best New Actress. Her final film role was in The 13 Chairs, also known as 12+1, which was released posthumously in 1969.

"Julien’s Auctions is proud to present this auction event that celebrates the beauty and grace of one of Hollywood’s brightest stars of the 1960s, Sharon Tate," said Darren Julien, President/Chief Executive Officer of Julien’s Auctions. "We honor Sharon Tate’s life and loves in this personal collection that captures the style of a woman whose life was cut way too short and has long been overshadowed by an unspeakable tragedy."

Highlights include a custom made chocolate slubbed silk dress attributed as being made by William Travilla and worn by Sharon Tate while being interviewed on the 1968 documentary The New Cinema (estimate: $5000-$7000); a black floral lace Christian Dior mini dress worn by Sharon Tate to the London premiere of Roman Polanski’s film Cul-de-Sac in 1966 (estimate: $15,000-$30,000); Tate’s chocolate sheer silk Alba gown worn by Sharon Tate at The Golden Globe Awards with Roman Polanski in 1968 (estimate: $4,000-$6,000); Tate’s ivory silk moiré mini wedding dress worn at her London wedding held at the Chelsea Registry to Roman Polanski in 1968 (estimate: $25,000-$50,000); Tate’s green knit mini dress designed by Betsey Johnson for Paraphernalia worn at the Paris 1967 premiere of The Fearless Vampire Killers (estimate: $1,000-$2,000); Tate’s chocolate mink swing coat designed by "Fuhrman’s Beverly Hills" with asymmetrical collar and fur puffs for buttons (estimate: $20,000-$40,000); Tate’s makeup including Revlon black eyeliners in black and in white and a Maybelline eyebrow pencil (estimate: $300-$500); her 1957 copy of "The Paradox of Acting" by Dennis Diderot with "Masks or Faces" by William Archer inscribed "Sharon Tate" in Tate’s hand (estimate: $800-$1,200); a set of blue floral canvas and leather carry-on luggage monogrammed "ST" in which Tate and Roman Polanski were shown photographed with while returning from their honeymoon in 1968 (estimate: $1,000-$2,000); a two toned jersey mini dress worn by Tate while attending the Cannes Film Festival with Roman Polanski in 1968 (estimate: $5,000-$7,000) and more.
