The Kindness Of Strangers & Celebrity Dangers (Collectible Lingerie Alert!)

One of my favorite films is A Street Car Named Desire. (I’m not the only one who feels this way; my art group is named after the famous line from the film.) And we all know that I have had to depend on the kindness of strangers. Plus, I love lingerie — and I’m not alone in that either, right? *wink* So, now, just imagine owning (even if not being able to actually wear) this sheer pink and ivory peignoir worn by Vivien Leigh, as Blanche DuBois, in the film!

(I swooned thrice, fainted twice, just trying to post this!)

Hot pink silk robe with delicate ivory lace covering, pale pink chiffon belt and trim on collar, cuffs and train. Silk floral accents at cuffs and parts of chiffon are missing. Very fragile condition overall. Worn by Vivien Leigh in her Academy Award-winning role as “Blanche DuBois” in the scene where Karl Malden confronts her and tells her he does not want to marry her in A Streetcar Named Desire.
