Audrey Hepburn Auction


OK first of all, I think we should all take a moment to fully appreciate and acknowledge the beauty that is Audrey Hepburn. I mean we’ve all seen that picture, which is why I didn’t want to use it to illustrate this post… I chose the one above, purely because when I saw it I was struck by the sheer magnificence of it. Audrey Hepburn – classic, overwhelming beauty in every sense of the word.

Now, onto business.

In order to raise funds for All Children In School, a joint venture between Unicef and The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund, an auction of some of her most iconic dresses is being held at La Galleria on Pall Mall in London on 8th December at 2pm. All auction items are to be exhibited beforehand on the 6th between 12-5pm and on the 7th between 9am-5pm.

On offer are 36 classic vintage pieces from the likes of Valentino, Elizabeth Arden and Givenchy, as well as letters, accessories and a wedding dress designed by the Fontana Sisters for her wedding to James Hanson; easily the star attraction. Such pieces are likely to fetch a pretty penny – in 2006 her Givenchy gown from the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s fetched £467,200 at auction.

Full details of the exhibition and auction can be found here.
