Audrey Hepburn's Dresses for sale




Breakfast at Tiffany's has to be one of my favourite films of all time.

In 2002 Audrey Hepburn's iconic black Givenchy dress she wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's was sold to an anonymous bidder for a staggering £467,200, far exceeding the £70,000 originally expected.

On 7th December 2009, thirty pieces of Audrey Hepburn's wardrobe and a collection of personal letters go on sale at La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall SW1. Proceeds from the pieces, many designed by Hubert de Givenchy and Valentino will go to The Audrey Hepburn Childrens Fund and Unicef.

"I never thought I'd land in pictures, with a face like mine..."
