Audrey Hepburn is one of the most legendary style icons of all time. And, now you have a chance to buy the ballet flats and Valentino couture the My Fair Lady actress actually wore. Christie's will showcase the star's personal items in a flagship auction at its London headquarters in September. Also available online (save the date for September 19!), the lots will include ballet flats in a rainbow of hues, a Burberry trench coat, and a Givenchy cocktail dress in blue satin.
The items were previously owned by Audrey's family, but her sons decided to share them with her ever-growing legions of fans. "After 24 years, we’ve decided what we’re able to keep—we don’t have that many homes to fill—and we hated the idea that the things that wouldn’t be exhibited one day or that wouldn’t be utilized toward moving her nonprofit efforts [forward] would just sit in storage," her son Sean Ferrer told Vogue. "It felt like it would be the right thing for all those people who loved her, who cared for her, to be generous and to share those few things.”
Get a sneak peek of the items in the teaser below.
The collection will be available for public viewing in London starting on September 23. And, Audrey's son and granddaughter are working on a book about her elegance and style; that will be released in 2018.
