Whitney Houston's possessions up for auction

Dresses and jewellery that once belonged to the late star will go up for auction next month.

Fifteen outfits worn by the pop legend - including the black velvet dress she wore in the video to her signature song, I Will Always Love You - will be up for sale.

'This is something that commonly happens after somebody passes - especially someone with the status of Whitney Houston,' said auctioneer Darren Julien to The New York Daily.

'Her items can increase 10, 20 even 30 times compared to their previous value prior to her death,' he explained. 'These items become part of history really.'

Items that formerly belonged to icons like Charlie Chaplin, Princess Diana and Charlie Heston will also be on sale in Julien's Hollywood Legends sale.

'Whitney is a legend so it's definitely an appropriate auction for her,' Julien continued. 'It's a reason to celebrate her life, not put these items in a box under the bed.'

The auction will take place on 31st March and 1st April in Beverly Hills, California.
