Giveaway! Unforgettable: Fashions of the Oscars


I found one more book to giveaway from my library!  And since the Academy Awards were last night, I thought the timing of this one appropriate.  I am downsizing my bookshelves and you get to benefit!

Today's giveaway is for the auction catalog for the Christie's "Unforgettable: Fashion of the Oscars" auction that was held to benefit AmfAR in 1999.  There were 54 lots in this auction, all famous dresses donated by Hollywood movie stars and celebrities for this auction.  All of the dresses were worn to the Academy Awards and include dresses from the 1950s to the 1990s. 

This silver beaded dress by Edith Head was worn by Janet Leigh in 1959.  Each double page spread includes a full page color photo of the dress and a full description of the designer and the garment itself, as well as the year it was worn.

This is a soft cover book, 165 pages and is in excellent condition.  I know you'll enjoy it and good luck!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Tuesday, February 26, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information.  And stay tuned for another giveaway every day this week!

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $16.00 - $23.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!
