Barbra Streisand “Dolly Levi” signature sleeveless gold velvet heavily jeweled gown with shoes and headpiece from Hello, Dolly!. (TCF, 1969) This is the legendary gown by Irene Sharaff which cost over $100,000 to construct, and is purported to be the most expensive dress ever made for a film. Over ½ pound of 14K gold is in the thread and jewel surrounds (some estimates put it as high as 1 pound) accented over its entire surface by gemstones of numerous types and colors, including Swarovski crystals, creating an extraordinary shimmering rainbow effect when turned in the light. Worn by Barbra Streisand as “Dolly Levi” in the “Harmonia Gardens” number when she sings the title song.
