Fashion icon and award-winning singer and actress Cher is clearing her Malibu, Calif., home of its Gothic contents and reshaping her life in a giant "garage sale."

Following a trend set by rock star Elton John, Cher is selling nearly 800 items, from stage costumes to gem-encrusted jewelry, works of art, furniture, and even a huge Hummer car, in an auction expected to raise more than $1 million.

"This is a lot more than a garage sale. Apart from the dresses and jewels, there are Old Masters and architectural drawings," said Darren Julien of Julien's auctions.

"She has a huge following. She is an icon. Her career in song, stage, and screen has spanned nearly four decades," he told Reuters as some of the items went on show in London on Monday, ahead of the sale in Los Angeles on October 3–4.

The sale is being jointly organized by Sotheby's New York office and Julien's of the United States.
