In 2003, the year Dame Shirley Bassey had been in show business for 50 years, a gown auction was held at Christie’s, where she sold 50 of her stage gowns. The money raised at the auction was to help build a children’s hospital in her hometown Cardiff. Here everything you ever wanted to know about the auction including some videos from TV and private videos made by Jean and her sister Audrey where you can really see all the beautiful details of the gowns. Gowns, that as Dame Shirley said, traveled the world. Very special thanks to them and to Jean Francois from New York for their contributions.
