For those fans who already own her entire discography, they'll soon be able to bid on pieces from Houston's most memorable movie role, when the black velvet dress and earrings she wore in the 1992 flick with Kevin Costner hit the auction block in March.

"It's a celebration of her life," celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien told the Associated Press on Sunday. "If you hide these things in fear that you're going to offend someone...her life is to be celebrated. These items are historic now that she passed. They become a part of history. They should be in museums. She's lived a life and had a career that nobody else has ever had."

Julien adds that the late singer's items will be among other celebrity memorabilia like silent film star Charlie Chaplin's cane and Clark Gable's jacket from Gone With the Wind.

Houston, who passed away on Feb. 11, was laid to rest in a New Jersey cemetery on Sunday, the day after her 3.5-hour long, celebrity-packed funeral took place in Newark, NJ.

Although she's been gone for just a little over a week, she's already back to topping the charts. Her classic "I Will Always Love You" made its return to the Billboard Top 10 this week at number 7.
