Veteran actress Anjelica Huston is selling off her vast collection of designer dresses.

The Addams Family star recently moved out of the house she once shared with her late husband Robert Graham in Venice, California, and no longer has room to store her gowns.

Huston, who lost her husband in 2008, has now decided to host a sale of 150 dresses in conjunction with Los Angeles-based vintage store Decades to clear out her closet.

She tells, "I just moved this year from the house I lived in in Venice with my husband and I had accumulated a vast amount of stuff. My gowns in particular I kept in a cedar closet downstairs and I felt it was time to get them out there and allow them to have another life. Some of them are so great it seems wrong to keep them under wraps forever."

Prices of the dresses, which include pieces by designers such as Zac Posen and Michael Kors, range from $140 (£87.50) to $2,800 (£1,750).
