The Rachel Marron Queen of the Night costume which Whitney Houston wore in The Bodyguard will be on the block at auction house Profiles in History in Los Angeles next week.
The art deco ensemble, inspired by Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece Metropolis, is expected to fetch up to $30,000.
The costume consists of a "chromed thermal formed chest plate, a stylized corset with chrome and aluminum accents, a metallic gray undersuit with attached garter straps detailed with metal studs, silver lamé crepe skirt, pair of aluminum arm cuffs with chrome ball detailing, broad Egyptian-style collar festooned with chrome balls, a waist belt with attached strings of hanging chrome beads, a pair of gray over-the-knee high heel boots accented with metal diamond-shaped studs running down the sides of the legs and gray opera-length gloves with both metal and hematite beading."
"One cannot find a better costume worn by Whitney Houston - one of the greatest musical performers of all time - at the peak of her storied career," said a rep for the house.
