Kevin Costner said at Whitney Houston's memorial service Saturday, no other woman could've portrayed "The Bodyguard's" Rachel Marron. But now the highest bidder can, at least, try and acquire the character's jewelry.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the earrings and vest that Houston wore in the 1992 blockbuster are going to be up for auction as part of the Hollywood Legends collection at Julien's Auctions. The jewelry is listed for around $600, while the vest is listed at $400.
Those two items, as well as a black gown of Houston's that's also up for auction (with a starting price of $1,000) are all expected to sell for far higher than the listed price points.
The items will go up on the auction block March 31 and April 1, with a free public exhibition running at the Beverly Hills based Julien's Auctions from March 19 to March 31.
Houston passed away at 48 a mere week ago, and was buried Sunday in Westfield, New Jersey, after a celebrity-filled memorial service on Saturday that was held in her childhood church in Newark.
