MOST WANTED: Pink satin bustier Elizabeth Taylor gown

Here is another gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor gown that Nolan designed with the same signature bustier cut.  Nolan designed roughly a dozen or so gowns for Elizabeth with this same cut in different colors and with other minor variations.  This design concept was inspired by the period costumes Nolan designed for Elizabeth for her TV movie "Poker Alice", which was set in the early 1900's.  Elizabeth wore this gown to present the award for best director at the 1987 Academy Awards.  The sketch for this gown is exceptionally detailed and beautiful, as were most of the formal gow sketches that were done for Elizabeth.

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