Sixties icon puts her past on sale
Wednesday 04 December 1996
Many of the clothes offered by the icon, who also partnered the singer Rod Stewart, recalled her heyday in the 1960s and 1970s: long, lace frocks, sequinned ponchos and multi-coloured jerseys. Also up for grabs in the auction, held at Christie's South Kensington, were leather shoes, handbags and jewellery, a brass double bed, and Rod Stewart gold and platinum presentation discs.
Collectors could even buy a brooch outline of Ekland's lips, by sculptor John Cotter, who sold replicas in bronze, aluminium and plastic with the slogan "Shut your eyes and imagine it's Britt you're kissing".
