Elizabeth Taylor was featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles wearing this cape, most famously on the cover of the October 6, 1961 issue of 'Life.' While the $194,800 budget for Taylor's costumes was the highest ever for a single actor at the time, the film's costume designer, Irene Sharaff, made good use of it, winning an Academy Award for 'Best Costume Design, Color' for her work.
Most recently, in the February 26, 2012 broadcast of "The 84 Annual Academy Awards," an image of Elizabeth Taylor wearing this cape was shown at the very end of the moving 'In Memoriam' tribute.
