It is mentionable that the costumes worn by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook have shattered auction estimates and sold for an impressive £7,500. Auction bosses at Nate D.
However, the 24-year-old American beauty queen also won the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild in January for her “Silver Linings Playbook” performance.
But, sanders expected the five items up for grabs to draw bids of between £312 and £937 each, but one lot, a full-length wool coat the actress wore in the film, went under the hammer for £2,908 alone.
Although on Sunday, the memorabilia trader had expected the items to fetch between $500 and $1,500 each following the 22-year-old’s Best Actress win at the Academy Awards.
Notably, the white pants Lawrence wore during the film’s ballroom dance scene with co-star Bradley Cooper went for $3,493, and a package of a teal sports bra and blue long-sleeved shirt sold for $3,175. And a black tank top from Lawrence’s wardrobe, but not worn in the film, fetched $624.
It is due to the movie studios often hand off costumes to auction houses, where even small outfits can bring in high prices from fans and collectors.
