In The Black

What price fashion? The black dress won by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s has sold at auction for £410,000. The dress was sold by Christie’s, London, for six times its estimated value.

The buyer of the size 6, 24-inch waist dress, signed by designer Hubert de Givenchy – with long black gloves and a pearl choker – remains a mystery, although there are rumours that Victoria Beckham bought it. If true, she may need it taking in a bit.
