| This robe was worn by the character “Deena Jones” portrayed by actress and singer Beyonce Knowles in the 2006 musical film “Dreamgirls”, co-starring Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy. This full-length LaPerla ivory robe has a silk shawl collar, a slit on each side, an ivory chiffon self-belt, and cream buttons on the front left and right sides. Attached is a costumer tag with “Dreamgirls, Character: Deena, Actor: Beyonce Knowles, Change: 36, Day N58 1975, Scenes: 179, Description: Int.

Ms. Knowles wears this robe after a fight between Deena, and her husband and manager “Curtis” (Jamie Foxx). After the couple fights about control over Deena’s career, Deena sings the song “Listen” in a recording studio while we see a montage of her going through Curtis’s desk in his home office, and discovering evidence that he willfully destroyed the career of “Effie White” (Jennifer Hudson), Deena’s former colleague. Ms. Knowles wears this robe during the montage, while tearfully picking up the phone and calling Effie to tell her about Curtis’s manipulation. This item is in excellent condition.
