Audrey Hepburn's 'Tiffany's' dress to be auctioned.
The black gown worn by Audrey Hepburn for the 1961 classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will be auctioned for charity December later this year in London. The iconic dress is expected to fetch $130,000, Christie's auction house said Wednesday July 26th.
The dress, which is designed by Givenchy and worn by Hepburn in the memorable opening scene of the romantic comedy flick, is being auctioned on behalf of the City of Joy Aid charity which helps underprivileged children in India.
Based on Truman Capote's novel and directed by Blake Edwards, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" stars Hepburn as a New York socialite who falls for a young writer who moves into her apartment building. The role earned Hepburn an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
