Liberace Returns To Vegas.... The Cosmopolitan Hosts "Lee" For a Fashion Finale!
Christmas cape (above): In 1980, Liberace wore this gabardine and white fox cape for his Christmas appearances at the Las Vegas Hilton and then again at Radio City Music Hall in 1985. The cape demonstrates the skill of Anna Nateece, a Greek-born master furrier who was a staple on the American fashion scene for more than four decades. It features an appliqued, multi-limbed tree and is lined entirely with silver sequins.
The six-week exhibit features several of Liberace’s decadent belongings such as the famed rhinestone piano, Liberace’s Rhinestone Roadster, an extravagant, curated costume collection, opulent European candelabras and video clips of performances. Visitors have the rare opportunity to view intricately-designed pieces from Liberace’s wardrobe including a virgin fox fur coat with 16-foot train, sequined jumpsuits, custom-made cowboy boots and more.
