Those headturning trousers, a pink ladies jacket, plus many more items from the actors 55-year career are going under the hammer. So why-yi-yi-yi now?
When Sandy told Danny to Tell me about it stud, in skin-tight black trousers and a leather jacket in the 1978 film Grease, little did Olivia Newton-John realise her characters costume would go on to fetch a combined estimate of $230,000 (185,000) at auction more than 40 years later.
These items of cinema history, along with 200 more of the actors costumes and personal clothes will go under the hammer at Juliens Auctions in LA in November, with 32 highlights now on display at the Museum of Style Icons in Ireland.
Needless to say, the black trousers will take centre stage and Newton-John hopes that they get the same head-turning reaction as they did during production. The night before we filmed Youre the One that I Want, John [Travolta] was filming Stranded at the Drive-in and I had finished filming. I was trying on costumes, hair and makeup in the trailer [and] I dont think anyone knew it was me at first as all the heads turned and I thought: Wow! What have I been doing wrong all this time? she tells me on the phone from her California home.
