Private Greta Garbo goes public in celebrity auction

She was renowned for her beauty and fierce sense of privacy, but later this year, fans of film legend Greta Garbo will get the chance to own one of more than 800 items of her wardrobe and home decor, including the bed she slept in. Julien’s Auctions said on Wednesday it would sell gowns, pant suits, furniture and art – ranging from a dress Garbo wore to dinner with President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy to an inflatable snowman the actress kept in her living room for laughs – at auction in Beverly Hills, California, on December 14 and 15.
