Fans and collectors are on the edge of their seats, ready to bid on this piece of cinematic history.

What a moment

It's the moment that made pulses race and now, it's up for sale! Colin Firth's iconic white linen shirt, the one that made "Mr. Darcy" an eternal heartthrob in the BBC's 'Pride and Prejudice,' is expected to fetch a pretty penny at auction. Ladies and gents, get your wallets ready!

Picture it: a dashing Colin Firth, emerging from a lake, his shirt clinging to him in all the right places – it's the stuff of dreams! Costume designer Dinah Collin recalls the birth of this legendary "wet shirt moment," a clever workaround to the no-nudity rule that catapulted Firth to sex symbol status overnight. Who knew a soaked shirt could be so steamy?

This isn't just about "Mr. Darcy's" drenched duds. The auction, hosted by Kerry Taylor Auctions, is a treasure trove of cinematic couture, all in aid of The Bright Foundation for arts education. From Drew Barrymore's 'Ever After' ensemble to Meryl Streep's cloak in 'The French Lieutenant's Woman,' it's a who's who of Hollywood history on the block!

John Bright, the Oscar-winning costume designer behind the auction, is passionate about supporting the arts for the younger generation. With costumes worn by the likes of Keira Knightley and Gwyneth Paltrow also under the hammer, it's a chance to own a piece of movie magic and support a noble cause.
