The personal collection of Hollywood actress Jane Fonda will be offered for sale at Julien's Auctions in September.

The sale will include couture fashions and jewelry, fine art, furniture, decorative art and personal items from Fonda's remarkable life and career.

Fonda has appeared in more than 50 films and television series throughout her career, winning numerous accolades and awards.

Having begun her career on the Broadway stage in 1960, she went on to star in classic movies such as Cat Ballou (1965), Barefoot in the Park (1967) and Barbarella (1968).
In 1972 Fonda won her first Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role as Bree Daniels in Klute, before following it up in 1978 with her second Oscar for her role as Sally Hyde in the Vietnam veteran drama Coming Home.

Then in 1982 Fonda completely revolutionized the home video market in the U.S with the first in her series of workout tapes. A generation of women acquired VCR machines and began using the tapes to exercise at home, and to date Fonda's workout videos have sold more than 17 million copies.

Having retired from acting in 1991, Fonda made her return to the big screen in 2005 with the hit comedy Monster-in-Law, and currently stars in the acclaimed Netflix comedy-drama Grace and Frankie.

Aside from her remarkable on-screen career, Fonda has also dedicated much of her life to political activism, and is one of the co-founders of Women's Media Center.

Highlights from the collection will include a unique Andy Warhol 1982 pop lithograph of Fonda as her iconic character icon Barbarella,  estimated at $25,000-$30,000;  her wedding dress and engagement ring to third husband and media mogul Ted Turner; the 80’s striped leotard worn on the cover of her Workout book and album; and the Yves Saint Laurent suit worn during her Oscar acceptance speech in 1972, estimated at $6,000-$8,000.

The auction will also offer a wealth of jewelry, Fonda's collection of folk and American fine art, furniture and mementoes from her movie career such as scripts, photographs and costume items.

Property from the Collection of Jane Fonda takes place at Julien's Auctions on September 23.
