• Jacket worn by Prince in ‘Purple Rain’to be auctioned


    LOS ANGELES: An iconic jacket worn by Prince in the 1984 film Purple Rain will be auctioned in Los Angeles in June, auction house Profiles in History said Friday. “It’s definitely the most important piece of screen-worn Prince clothing that’s ever come up for auction,” Profiles in History president Joe Maddalena said. “This is the first time ever for something like this, and it might be the only time because the rest of the costumes may be in his personal wardrobe.” The famously private singer gave the jacket to a makeup artist at the end of the shoot, auction house spokesman Jeff Hare told Agence France-Presse. It has an asking price of $6,000 to $8,000, but is likely to fetch more at the June 29 sale.
