Helmsley's garb to be auctioned

From Times Wire Reports

Fur coats, designer gowns, plus dozens and dozens of pairs of Ferragamo shoes belonging to the late socialite and hotel owner Leona Helmsley are headed to the auction block.

Nearly her entire wardrobe is to be auctioned off May 18 at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, a Chicago-based auction house.

The collection includes the Chanel skirt suit that Helmsley wore when she began serving a sentence for tax evasion.

Helmsley, who died in August at age 87, ordered that her property be sold and the proceeds donated to the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
