Debbie Reynolds' PEPLUM costume collection

Debbie Reynolds used to have a massive collection of costumes from famous films, including many from the PEPLUM/Biblical/Historical genre. This is just a small sample.

One of Claudette Colbert's costumes from CLEOPATRA (1934)

The headdress from CLEOPATRA (1963) worn by Elizabeth Taylor

Above and Below: some of Richard Burton's costumes from CLEOPATRA (1963)

The tunic Charlton Heston wore in BEN-HUR (1959)

I believe the Taylor "Cleopatra" head dress was created by prop-and mask making genius Wah Chang, who did loads of now famous props for the original Star Trek series, including the phaser, the communicator and the Klingon war ships.
