You don’t play Erica Kane on All My Children for 41 years (with all the attendant events and Emmys ceremonies that entails) without amassing a sizable wardrobe of designer clothing. But at some point, even the most fabulous divas with the biggest closets have to part with some of their favorite pieces to make room for more clothes. And of course, she has to unload her items in a suitably glamorous way. Starting March 1, the actress will be auctioning off more than 300 of her personal items, from housewares to purses to designer gowns, on Everything But the House. All items will start at $1, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit UCP of NYC, a nonprofit that assists children and adults with disabilities from all walks of life.
So now that you’ve set your calendar alert, what should you be getting psyched for over the coming month? In addition to items like china and couches, there are hundreds of items straight from her closet, including a gold lamé Anne Klein jumpsuit, Chanel bag, Miu Miu heels and sheer black gown she wore to the Daytime Emmys in 1993 (see her wearing it here!), all pictured below.
Also on the block: a vintage blue lamé dress she wore to a 1990 gala, the sherbet-colored Escada Couture ballgown she wore to the 1998 Daytime Emmys, a red Christian Lacroix gown she wore to a ball in 1993, and the Gucci coat and slinky white dress she’s pictured in, above. And all of it can be yours to swan around in starting March 1 on Everything But the House.
