    Bette Midler is cleaning out her closet!

    Reuters reports that diva Bette Midler will auction off her stage attire, including the famous mermaid costume, the Valentino gown she wore to the 1992 Oscars and a collection of headdresses. The auction will take place on Nov. 12 in Beverly Hills.

    The Divine Miss M, 65, will also auction of ensembles designed by Bob Mackie and outfits she wore on album covers dating back to the 1970s!

    Top items include a glittering pink-and-purple mermaid costume that Midler wore during her recent two-year residency The Showgirl Must Go On in Las Vegas, which is expected to sell for $1,000 to $1,500!

    The Bob Mackie dress she wore for the opening number of her "Bette! Divine Madness" tour in 1980 has an estimated price of $2,000 to $3,000.

    The singer/actress will be donating a portion of the auction's proceeds to the nonprofit organization she created in 1995 to restore small parks and community gardens in New York City.

    Do any of these items interest you?
