Leona Helmsley's Clothes Up For Sale
Leona Helmsley's furnishings and art have hit Christie's but what about her fabulous wardrobe? The Queen of Mean had quite a couture collection that ranged from Ferragamo shoes, Yves Saint Laurent ballgowns and fur coats. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago will sell nearly her entire wardrobe, thousands of items, on May 18. Helmsley's wardobe won't earn as much as her Tiffany silver, the whole shebang, right down to the Chanel skirt suit she wore to prison, is only expected to earn around $100,000. The proceeds will be donated to the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
