Vintage 1987 Cher Witches of Eastwick Movie-Worn Alaia Lace Up Skirt & Crop Top

$18,000

About

A breathtaking ensemble worn by Cher for her role in the 1987 Warner Brothers production of Witches of Eastwick. This famous film stars Jack Nicholson as Daryl Van Horne, alongside Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon as the eponymous witches. The costume designer, Aggie Guerard Rodgers, wanted Cher's character to embody a seductive sculptress widow and this two-piece completely deliveries. The hourglass high waisted skirt is constructed from wide bands of black fabric laced together with matching ribbon. This iconic Alaia garment worked perfectly for Cher's role in the movie but she wasn't in love with any of the tops shown with it on the runway. With the costume designer's approval, she personally requested Bob Mackie to make her a cropped top in the matching fabric. The ensemble came together so flawlessly that it was used for all the major press pictures. Cher celebrity worn pieces are very rare and having the Alaia/Bob Mackie connection makes this a prized ensemble to any vintage collection. Measurements (varies due to stretch) Blouse Bust:34-38 inches Total Length:11 inches Sleeve Length:22 inches Skirt Waist:24-28 inches Hips:34-38 inches Total Length:45 inches This Cher movie-worn Witches of Eastwick ensemble is in excellent condition with no serious damage to note. Perfectly working back zipper in place. Comes with certificate of authenticity and full provenance. An iconic celebrity and fashion investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

About Bob Mackie (Manufacturer)

Vintage Bob Mackie dresses are a fashion favorite, and with good reason. The legendary Monterey, California–born fashion designer has accrued an enviable list of awards that speak to his unparalleled influence on costumes for screen and theatrical performances: Mackie (b. 1939) has nine Emmy awards to his name, a Tony award, a CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award, three Academy Award nominations and more.


As a child, Mackie was enamored of Portuguese-born Brazilian dancer and actress Carmen Miranda. The love of film shared by his sister and mother proved contagious for Mackie, and he marveled at the richness and beauty he found in ballet. He wasn’t interested in fashion so much as he was in entertainment and went on to fortunately find work in television during the 1960s, specifically in programming that seemed to encompass all of what he’d grown to love about the arts.


As a fashion sketch artist, Mackie collaborated with Hollywood’s greatest costume designers, working with the legendary Edith Head at Paramount Studios as soon as he’d finished school. From there, he secured work with French-born, Hollywood costume designer Jean Louis, sketching the iconic Louis dress worn by Marilyn Monroe when she sang “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy in 1962.


Mackie would spend most of his career as a costume designer, creating iconic pieces like the Gone With the Wind parody costume (currently in the Smithsonian) for The Carol Burnett Show — where he worked for more than a decade — and campy, opulent dresses for The Cher Show on Broadway, for which he won the Tony award. But he had a considerable influence on mainstream fashion as well. The figure-hugging, feathered and fringed gowns and cocktail dresses he designed were worn by stars like Cher and Diana Ross on the red carpet and concert tours. Similar designs of his — dazzling evening dresses of black or vibrant red silk, some beaded with rhinestones or embellished with ostrich feathers or navy blue sequins — made their way into Mackie’s mainstream fashion collection. His ready-to-wear line debuted in 1982.


Bob Mackie has always said that his clothes were “for the woman who is not afraid to be noticed,” and any woman in one of his signature dresses would definitely turn heads. There is sparkle and an element of grandeur in his garments, whether they were crafted for singer Elton John, a universally renowned fashion icon in his own right, or the woman next door, donning one of Mackie’s spectacular creations and feeling like a movie star herself.
