The Golden Girls Years

The Last Robe from "The Golden Girls"

After two auctions – one in Beverly Hills and one in Manhattan – and two plus years posting items on Estate of Rue, we are down to the last (oops, second to last) of Rue’s robes from “The Golden Girls.” So, unless more turn up in a box we haven’t yet opened,...

UPDATE - Rue's Complete Silk Outfit From "The Golden Palace"

Rue said: "This is an outfit from 'The Golden Girls,'" but we can't find it. Can you?

Rue's Original Photograph of "The Golden Girls" From "Night of 100 Stars"

Isn’t this photo of “The Golden Girls” a hoot? It was taken at “Night of 100 Stars III.” What are they wearing?! The event took place on May 5, 1990 – Cinco De Mayo – at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. At some point during the proceedings,...

Rue's Knife From "The Golden Girls"

Rue's Framed Cast and Crew Portrait From "The Golden Girls"

Every year the entire cast and crew of “The Golden Girls” would gather in the living room of the set and shoot a full portrait. We aren’t sure which season this shot if from, but perhaps someone out there can identify it from what the ladies are wearing? The frame itself is...

Rue's Rainbow Cover-Up And Pink Silk Shell From "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]

Rue wore this rainbow cover-up in multiple episodes of “The Golden Girls.” She wore it with different shells underneath, too, and we were able to match it up with one of them. The cover-up was made for I. Magnin, but the costume designer on “The Golden Girls” tweaked it...

Rue's Flowing Winter White Cover-Up From "The Golden Girls"

Isn’t this a classic Blanche piece? It has movement and sass, just like Rue when she’d transform into Blanche! The piece was made by a company called “Wild Rose” and it is one-size-fits-all. Rue wore this winter white cover-up in Season Five of “The Golden...

Rue's Hunt Scene Skirt With Green Silk Cover Up And Attached Scarf

How ’90s is this outfit? It is totally Blanche Elizabeth Devereaux, too! The pieces are 100% silk and were designed and made by Judy Evans, the costume designer for both “The Golden Girls” and “The Golden Palace.” We had such a quandary with this outfit because...

Rue's Stained Silk Shell From Iconic Episode of "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]

You can’t tell from looking at the photos because this silk is so reflective, you can’t even tell in person until you get close, but this silk shell of Rue’s is covered with stains. It looks like Rue got makeup on it while putting it on and taking it off, and it looks like she...

Rue's Green and Black Swirl Shirt From "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]
