Bosses at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills are handling the sale of the actress' fashion items, jewellery and personal items.

News of the auction, scheduled for 16 December (15), comes just days after the death of Collins' sister Jackie, who lost her battle with cancer on Saturday (19Sep15).

Highlight items include a Versace choker, two vintage Louis Vuitton steamer trunks, a gold perfume bottle gifted to Collins from Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner, a couture halter dress worn to the Doctor Dolittle premiere in 1967, and costumes from Dynasty, including gowns designed by Nolan Miller and a custom made white fox and mink cape designed by furrier Edward Lowell.
