LOS ANGELES - There had to be an auction, but so soon?

A black velvet dress that belonged to Whitney Houston and a pair of earrings she wore in "The Bodyguard" will be sold to the highest bidder next month.

Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien said Sunday that the pieces and other Houston items became available after the singer's unexpected death on Feb. 11. They will be included in a long-planned sale of Hollywood memorabilia such as Charlie Chaplin's cane and Clark Gable's jacket from "Gone With the Wind."

Houston's dress is valued at $1,000 but is likely to collect much more. A vest she wore in "The Bodyguard" is listed at $400 and the earrings begin at $600.

The auction will be held March 31 in Beverly Hills, Calif.
