CHOPPING BLOCK

When the executioner’s axe falls in the finale of the White Princess, it changes the course of history and how Lizzie will forever be viewed. It’s a startling, shocking plot twist in the episode aptly titled “Old Curses” – and paved the historical way for her sadistic son, Henry VIII, to adopt a vicious habit of beheading his wives. Without venturing into the spoiler-alert arena, VIP Fan Auctions is offering the infamous executioner’s axe (pictured above) featured on-screen in The White Princess in both the finale ad the episode “English Blood on English Soil” (click here for photos and more information). It’s a grim yet pivotal prop from the epic story – and it can be yours if you cast the winning bid today. But don’t lose your head – the axe is falling on this auction soon – so click here and act quickly!

 

DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES

The White Princess miniseries on Starz brings viewers back to the sights, sounds and intrigue of a divided 15th century England, during which brutal battles for the throne were waged between the rival royal houses of York (symbolized by a white rose) and Lancaster (symbolized by a red rose). When the forces of Henry Tudor ultimately defeated the Yorks to claim the throne and unite the country, a new symbol of a burgundy rose enveloping a white rose was born to symbolize the union. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a Tudor white/burgundy rose flag (pictured above, behind the throne) and dragon flag featured on-screen in The White Princess. Each banner is more than two-feet wide and nine-feet long – click here for photos and more information. Also available is a set of six green glass goblets featured on-screen in The White Princess (click here for photos and more information).

THE EMPORER’S NEW CLOTHES

When Henry Tudor’s troops defeated the army of King Richard III, the last Yorkist king, at the Battle of Bosworth Field, he ended the War of the Roses and took his place as King Henry VII. His marriage to Elizabeth of York united England and gave rise to The White Princess – a remarkable miniseries period piece on Starz. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Henry’s (played by Jacob Collins-Levy) royal outfit worn on-screen in multiple episodes of The White Princess. The wardrobe includes the king’s custom-made black robe, pants and jacket, as well as his leather boots.

CUSTOM FIT FOR A QUEEN

The dazzling wardrobe of The White Princess is as distinctive as the characters themselves. “One lovely thing about the project was that those three women are all so dramatically, clearly designed against each other, and they’re each very strong characters in their own right,” costume designer Phoebe De Gaye told Town & Country magazine. “So it was a matter of trying to define that and really bring that out in contrasting the colors and styles.” De Gaye pointed out her strategy for designing costumes for Elizabeth of York (played by Jodie Comer) was to exploit her voluptuousness – and VIP Fan Auctions is now offering several of “Lizzie’s” most amazing screen-worn pieces. Currently available is Lizzie’s ornate, custom-made overdress and lace-up shoes worn during the Starz miniseries (click here for photos and more information). Also available is a green-and-gold custom-made dress worn by Lizzie (pictured above, click here for photos and more information). Don’t miss your chance to own a bone-fide period piece costume created by one of Hollywood’s hottest designers.

AXE MAN

Battle is brutal, and the tools of combat wielded during the War of the Roses were built for maximum hand-to-hand destruction. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a set of weapons and a shield used in the service of King Henry – and on screen – during The White Princess. The battle-tested shield (pictured above) features the red lion emblem of King Henry’s troops, as well as a club and axe. These props have been carefully designed for maximum authenticity and to keep actors from being harmed during production.

THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE

The White Princess costume designer Phoebe De Gaye is no newcomer to show business, but the wardrobe she designed for the Starz miniseries has captured the attention of Hollywood. To capture the look and feel of the period of upheaval in English history, De Gaye says she studied paintings of the period and found them well-suited for a high-definition world. “You really need a lot of texture with HD images,” she told Variety. “If you don’t have that, it all fades away on-screen,” she says. And no design was created without reason. For instance, De Gaye points out to the publication how Lizzie “starts off as a girl and gradually becomes more and more encrusted and stiff by the end of the series. The witch – Elizabeth – wore blue colors; she’s associated with water. The color palettes were quite defining.” VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a piece of the witch’s wardrobe – a custom-designed, blue and gold robe was worn on-screen by Essie Davis as Elizabeth Woodville in the series, which is now available to The White Princess fan who casts the winning bid.

ROAR OF THE ROSES

The legendary War of the Roses, in which the House of Lancaster (symbolized by a red rose) battled the House of York (symbolized by a white rose) – was ultimately won by Henry Tudor (Team Lancaster) and combined them into the red-and-white “Tudor Rose” to signify the unity of the houses. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a nearly 6-ft.-x-6-ft. Tudor Crest flag featured on-screen in The White Princess (see above) – along with a distinctive dragon flag (also pictured above), which hand in the chapel.

RICHARD THE BOAR

The Battle of Bosworth was the final major battle in the War of the Roses between the Houses of Lancaster and York, in which King Richard III was killed in battle by the forces of Henry Tudor. The banner of Richard III is emblazoned with the ruler’s distinctive White Boar badge, which was largely destroyed as the Tudors assailed his reputation following his death. VIP Fan Auctions, however, has retrieved a large white boar banner featured on-screen in The White Princess. The exquisite flag, which measures nearly 4-ft. wide and more than 7-ft. long features the white boar symbol, as well as the York’s white rose emblazoned on a blue and red field. Don’t miss your change to own this distinctive piece of English and television history.

FIT FOR A PRINCESS

“When you wear the costumes in a period drama, you already feel like a different person – the clothes make you stand differently, change your posture, the way you walk…” says The White Princess star Jodie Comer, who plays Elizabeth of York in the Starz miniseries, during a recent interview with Vanity Fair. “[Costume designer] Phoebe De Gaye is so passionate about the costumes she makes, she’s full of ideas. When someone cares so much about the work they do and puts in so much effort, it makes you want to do a good job as well.” Many of those screen-worn fashions custom-made for The White Princess by Phoebe De Gaye are currently available at VIP Fan Auctions, including a purple-and-green gown (click here for photos and more information) as well as a nightgown (click here) worn on-screen by Rebecca Benson as Maggie; and a beige silk slip and sleeves worn on-screen by Amy Manson’s Cathy Gordon (click here).
