Givenchy Tops Hepburn AuctionDec 9, 2009 @ 12:45 am
The most-wanted items from Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe at the Kerry Taylor Auctions in London yesterday were courtesy of Hubert de Givenchy. A black lace Givenchy Couture cocktail dress that Hepburn wore in How to Steal a Million sold for almost $98,000—topping the auction’s list! Another Givenchy creation, the black silk dress that she wore while promoting Paris When It Sizzles, sold for almost $22,500. The entire auction made roughly $436,883 and all proceeds benefited the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund.
