If you’ve ever wanted to feel like a royal, here is your chance. Ahead of The Crown’s final episodes, streaming giant Netflix has announced that it will auction off some of the most iconic items from the fan-favorite royal drama. The first part of the show’s sixth and final season dropped on November 16, while the concluding six episodes will be released on December 14, marking the end of the show’s seven-year run.
Auction house Bonhams is all set to head The Crown auction, which will include almost 450 props, furniture, and costumes from all six seasons of the acclaimed series. The auction will happen in two parts.
The online auction, running from January 30 to February 8 on Bonhams’ website, will showcase around 300 lots, catering to early-bird bidders. The live auction on February 7 at Bonhams’ London flagship will feature about 150 lots. The special part is that the proceeds from the auction sales will pave the way for a brand-new scholarship program at the National Film and Television School. This initiative aims to nurture aspiring talents across various fields like directing, editing, production design, and art direction for the next two decades.
The Items Available
While all 450 items up for bid are bound to be a collector’s dream, some truly stand out as sensational, especially the iconic pieces from Princess Diana’s wardrobe in the show. These include the stunning replica of Diana’s sapphire engagement ring in season 4, the unforgettable revenge dress donned by the princess after her split from Prince Charles in season 5, and the leopard swimsuit from season 6, worn during the infamous vacation amid Charles’ 50th birthday bash for Camilla Parker Bowles.
The auction will also feature replicas of the Gold State Coach, ceremonial coronation garments like one worn by actress Claire Foy for Queen Elizabeth’s 1953 crowning scene, as well as ballgowns amongst other unmissable items. The auction is sure to be a great success.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky often walk through the streets of New York City to enjoy date nights. But, their casual date night styles are basically high fashion for most others! The couple was recently seen in NYC on a date night sporting their signature casual chic style.
The Effortlessly Glam Rihanna
On her date night with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna was seen wearing attention-catching thigh-high baggy suede boots from Y/Project. As she strutted past photographers, the pair of boots slouched around her legs. Her vintage oversized RZA T-shirt was paired with an adorable R13 frayed black denim mini skirt, which brushed the top of her dramatic high boots. For accessories, the beauty mogul took a vintage route, sporting several chains, bangles, thin hoop earrings, and a green snakeskin bag from Gucci. Combed black long hair, a pair of black sunglasses, and a bright red lip completed her whole look with effortless glam.
The Perfect Boyfriend A$AP Rocky
Taking a cue from Rihanna, her boyfriend A$AP Rocky also went for a cool stylish look. He was seen sporting a brown checkered flannel button-down shirt over a white tee with cartoon character illustrations. He paired these with open-knee, wide-legged denim jeans. A gold and purple Los Angeles hat and a pair of black and white Adidas sneakers completed his look.
The Couple Goal
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are sporting a united front after the recent arrest of A$AP Rocky. Last November, the rapper was accused of being involved in a crime. Terell Ephron, his best friend from high school, was the alleged victim in the case. Ephron sustained minor injuries in his hand, and Rocky was arrested in April this year for his alleged participation in the whole incident. Amidst this turmoil, the couple also welcomed their first child. Though the case is still ongoing, the couple seems to be going as strong as ever.
