MOST WANTED: Red velvet bows Elizabeth Taylor gown

This gown was made for Elizabeth Taylor by Nolan, and was worn on the cover of the December 1985 issue of Vanity Fair, as well as for the photo shoot that was used for the pictorial.  I am not sure if Elizabeth ever wore this gown to any functions or in other photo shoots.  I like the red velvet material, it's simplicity in the basic regal cut but accentuated with the bows at the shoulders.  Nolan Miller had a great talent for designing gowns for Elizabeth that made her look glamorous, sexy, and elegant over age 50.  Obviously Elizabeth had a lot to do with the success of the designs, as she was a gorgeous woman, but I think it takes talent to combine all of those attributes into one gown for a woman of that age.

WANTED: If anyone has this gown, or any information on its whereabouts, please let me know!
