Audrey Hepburn’s black gown worn famously in Breakfast at Tiffany’s sold for around $800,000 at Christie’s in London. The dress was designed by Givenchy and is a size 6. The bidding war ended when a mysterious telephone caller won the auction, paying 6 times more than the original estimate. The auction also broke records for the highest bid for a gown in a film.
Rumors are that Posh Spice purchased the dress. Posh already owns one of Audrey Hepburn’s diamond chokers and has expressed interest in the lot. Posh’s spokeswhore said, “I have no idea if she’s been involved in the bidding.”
Christie’s would of course not comment on who won the bidding, but did say they lived in Europe.
$800,000?!!! Hell, you can buy a similiar won at Windsor Fashions for $80 I’m not joking!
