WANTED: Navy velvet Elizabeth Taylor gown

This is another gown Nolan did for Elizabeth Taylor that was inspired by her costumes for "Poker Alice."  Nolan was known for finding a look or pattern that he liked and making multiple versions and variations of that design.  The "Poker Alice" cut gowns for Elizabeth Taylor definitely exemplify this repetition.  However, this cut looks amazing on Elizabeth, showcasing her best assets, and hiding her problem areas, so it is a good look to keep repeating.  This gown would rank higher on my want list, but even though I do like this gown, I find it a bit plain and underwhelming compared to the other gowns Nolan designed for Elizabeth with a similar cut and style in purple, magenta, white, red, pink, etc.

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