It was a real icon of the fashion in the 50s and 60s. Now some of the models that Audrey Hepburn showed in his unforgettable movies are going to go out to auction in London, Paris and New York in these next days. The collection will go to the Foundation “Audrey Hepburn Children's“ who continues a magnificent social work that the actress realized in the last years of his life in which it covered the world as Ambassadress of the UNICEF.
The auction will extract to the light the models that Audrey showed in movies like “Breakfast with diamonds” (961), Sabrina (1954), the lace garment color cremates that it shone in “Steal to million”, the garment of black cocktail with laces that went in “Like stealing a million.” the suit color turquoise of “Two in the highway” and a fiancée's garment that they created for her the sisters Fontana in 1952 who never went so far as to release because his wedding with James Hanson does not go so far as to be celebrated and then it gave it to a young Italian fiancée. The auction will include also accessories, letters and telegrams of the actress.
In the history of the fashion, tied to the movies, Audrey Hepburn represented the quintessence of the elegance of his epoch. Very thin, with an incredible personality even dressed in simple outfits as a black pullover of high neck, exact pants and a few ballerinas, his style was imitated by thousands of women. His maker was principally the French couturier Hubert de Givenchy to whom it always remained faithful and also the designer of Paramount Edith Head authoress of the wardrobe of the movie “Holidays in Rome” (1953) that cost him an Oscar. The auctions of Paris, London and New York many of these models will gather together with other creations of Saint Laurent and Christian Dior giving this way continuity to a marvelous social work that the actress developed.
