London, Apr 2 (ANI): The gold cape worn by Elizabeth Taylor in the classic movie 'Cleopatra' has been auctioned for whopping 37,000 pounds.

The garment, designed to look like the wings of a phoenix, helped the 1963 blockbuster bag an Oscar for Best Costume Design.

The Hollywood legend wore it in scenes where Cleopatra entered Rome and when she committed suicide with a snake bite.

The cape was bought in 1970 from a costume shop by a woman who never showed it to anyone.

When she died her daughter put it up for sale.

"I never mentioned it or showed it to anyone," the Sun quoted the anonymous seller as saying after the auction in Dallas, US.

"When Elizabeth Taylor passed away I thought of the magnificent cape and realised it was time for it to find its way into the world," she added.

Taylor died last year at the age of 79. (ANI)
