The black Givenchy gown worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film
"Breakfast at Tiffany’s" sold at auction Tuesday for $807,000, almost six times the highest pre-sale estimate.
The iconic garment had been expected to fetch between $98,000 and
$138,000 as part of a sale of film and television memorabilia at
Christie’s auction house in London. Proceeds will go to the charity City of Joy Aid, which helps India’s poor.
Hepburn wore the dress for one of her best-known roles, as eccentric Manhattan socialite Holly Golightly in the 1961 film adaptation of Truman Capote’s novel.See the Top Ten Summer 2016 Trends for Women Over 40
