Rue kept a whole bar in her closet packed with these opulent asian-style jacket tops. She showed us the secret of being able to lounge around all day in a shell and stretch pants and then throw one of these on and suddenly look like a star; like, for example, if Entertainment Tonight stopped by for a quick interview. This one has no tag so it may even be custom made. It is a heavy, almost drapery like fabric with seven buttons and side vents. It is edged with a black based floral tapestry and the square cut hides a multitude of sins. Rue wore it often and you can find pictures on the internet of her at
various functions in this top. We’ll include a print of the Entertainment Tonight screen grab and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
