Audrey Hepburn’s Expensive Clothes

Audrey HepburnAudrey Hepburn’s designer clothes collection sold at auction for over $400,000.

A set of 36 items belonging to the actress went up for sale in London’s La Galleria this past week, including a cocktail dress worn by the screen legend in the film How to Steal a Million - which raised $97,000.

Tanja Star-Busmann - who had been friends with Audrey from the age of 15 - revealed the actress was always a fan of passing her unwanted clothes on. She wrote in the auction guide:

“Over the years a cavalcade of boxes filled to the brim with haute-couture evening dresses, divine little cocktail ensembles, easy-to-wear silk supper dresses, sensible tweed coats, chic little day suits and glamorous dressing gowns, often accompanied by wonderful accessories, arrived at my door. Unpacking them was always like Christmas a thousand times over.”

The pricey cocktail dress was not the only item to sell well. A luxurious black silk gown which belonged to the late actress - who died in 1993 - sold for $27,000, and an exquisite wedding dress went under the hammer for $22,000. In 2007, a cocktail dress worn by the legendary actress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s sold for almost $162,600.
