The iconic red dress that Kate Winslet's character Rose DeWitt Bukater wore in 'Titanic' fetches USD 330,000 at a Hollywood auction.
The 'Drama Action, Romance - The Hollywood Auction' by Profiles in History saw some contemporary memorabilia fetch eye-popping prices during the weekend, reported Hollywood Reporter.
Winslet's exquisite red chiffon dress was designed by Deborah L Scott and took more than 1,000 hours to sew. This costume featured in one of the most memorable scenes of the movie when Rose and Jack meet for the first time on the windswept deck of the Titanic.
It originally was sold by clothier J Peterman in 1998, the year after the hit movie's original release, as part of promotional sale of costumes and props from the movie.
Profiles in History describes it as the only screen-used "jump dress" in private hands.
The top seller during the auction was the bow used by Legolas (Orlando Bloom) in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, which sold for USD 372,000. The presale high estimate was USD 120,000.
Bloom used the brown-painted composite plastic bow made in Weta's New Zealand workshop in all three films.
A screen-used X-Wing model from the first 'Star Wars' movie in 1977 sold for USD 270,000 more than twice its high estimate of USD 120,000.
