    CHRISTIE'S TO AUCTION HEPBURN'S BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S DRESS
    WebPosted Wed, 26 Jul 2006 10:06:39

    ---An iconic piece of Hollywood sartorial history will cross the block in
    December with the sale of Audrey Hepburn's black dress from the movie
    classic Breakfast at Tiffany's .

    British auctioneer Christie's announced Wednesday that the Hubert de Givenchy-
    designed dress will sell as part of its annual film and entertainment
    sale in London.

    The dress is expected to fetch between 50,000 and 70,000 (about ,000-
    ,000 Cdn) and is being auctioned on behalf of the City of Joy Aid
    charity, which helps underprivileged children in India.

    Hepburn wore the black, sleeveless dress in the 1961 romantic comedy
    classic, an enduring favourite that helped cement the Brussels-born
    actress into Hollywood history.

    Adapted from the novella by Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's stars
    Hepburn as the charming extrovert Holly Golightly.

    The famous opening scene sees Hepburn, wearing the simple but elegant
    dress, emerge from a taxi onto a deserted Fifth Avenue in New York during
    the early morning. The glamorous gamine peers through the window of
    jewelry store Tiffany's while munching on her breakfast out of a brown
    paper bag.

    Hepburn, whose credits also include Roman Holiday , Sabrina , My Fair
    Lady , Funny Face and Wait Until Dark , died from colon cancer in 1993.
    She was 63.

    Christie's film and entertainment auction is set to take place in London
    on Dec. 5.

    Damn she was great..especially in that film...I wonder how much she helped along the whole concept of the 'little black dress" with that film?
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!
