A planned auction of late R&B crooner Luther Vandross' possessions reveals his taste for fine clothes and art.
Among the items for sale are wardrobe items and stage costumes, including Dolce & Gabbana fur pants, and red pants made of pony, the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Sunday. And then there are the pink Versace snakeskin vest and purple Gucci snakeskin pants. [They could've left this entire paragraph out. - - Fresh]
Lucky fans will also have the chance to snap up the singer's Cartier watches and diamond jewelry included in the catalog released by auctioneer Dawson & Nye.
Outside of wardrobe, Vandross also had fine taste in art and furnishings, the newspaper said. He owned a charcoal sketch by Picasso, Lalique glassware and animals, and art deco furniture.
More mundane items like Vandross' driver's license and high school class ring will also be on the block.
