The late actress’ all-white outfit she donned as Princess Leia in 1977’s ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’ goes under the hammer with Propstore Auction and is expected to fetch hg sum at the end of the three days sale, which runs from June 28 to 30.

More than 1,400 memorabilia from 300 movies and TV shows will be part of the auction, with other lots including Batman’s Batpod, Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord light-up helmet from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, clown doll from the classic 1982 film “Poltergeist” and Daniel Radcliffe’s distressed costume from “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” the latter of which is expected to fetch at least $75,000.

The Batpod, used by Christian Bale in ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, is expected to draw bids as high as Princess Leia’s costume.

Earlier this month, Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd paid a moving tribute to the late star – who died in December 2016 – on Mother’s Day, even admitting she is now mum to Jackson, two and five months, she sees the day as being to honor her late mother instead of herself.

The 30-year-old actress, who is married to Austen Rydell, wrote on Instagram: “Even though I’ve been a mum for almost 3 years and now have 2 kids, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear Happy Birthday mothers is her. Even though it’s been over 6 years since she passed away, when I first wake up it still feels like her day – not mine.

“But as the day progresses, I remember it’s my day now too. I’m a mother to two magical little creatures who I adore dearly and there’s nothing that brings me more joy. than to be their mother.

“And even if she’s not here, it’s still her day.” It’s our day now. And it’s both sad and strangely beautiful. With the magic of life comes the reality of grief. Everything is connected. »
