While we’re still trying to get to the bottom of the mystery in the last post – what is this script someone is trying to sell in England? – I do have something else Tiffany-related for you that I’ve been forgetting to mention. Mainly, that Tiffany & Co. have released an “affordable” collection of items for the Holly Golightlys that love to browse but may be a bit short on funds. (Alas, we have moved past the era of sterling silver telephone dialers.) Who here doesn’t want to sip their morning caffeine of choice from a china Tiffany cup made to look like a paper cup? I think there’s something very Holly about it. Continue reading “Tiffany’s Everyday Objects collection, plus snacks!”
I thought I was seeing things last night when the news came in from England that Audrey Hepburn’s personal script for Breakfast at Tiffany’s is to be auctioned later this month. Is anyone else feeling a sense of déjà vu? But no, it’s not just us: Farnon & Lake will be auctioning what must be the same script on Saturday, February 17th.
Good news for our East Coast (US) friends: Audrey Hepburn may be coming to a big screen near you! I’d previously mentioned LA’s upcoming screening of Roman Holiday, and now those on the opposite coast have a chance to do the same. So far I’ve found two screenings in New York, and a library in Maine that’s having a whole month of Audrey for you.
Hi friends, while there hasn’t been much in the way of news lately, I did notice something that I’d really like to share with you. As I’d mentioned before, the Children’s Fund has recently updated and moved their website, as well as their Facebook account and a new Instagram account. While it’s always nice to see some Audrey in your feed, did you know that they’re sharing rare items and photos every Thursday? Continue reading “Are you following the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund?”
Alright, all my fellow Angelinos, this one is for you: Cinespia is screening Roman Holiday on Valentine’s Day at the Los Angeles Theatre! If you hadn’t planned that far ahead, it’s okay, Cinespia has got your back. In addition to seeing an absolutely fantastic film on the big screen, in and of itself a rare treat, you also get stunning decor, an excuse to dress up, and “complimentary bubbly.” Continue reading “Spend Valentine’s Day with Audrey!”
I know there are quite a few fans out there who weren’t even born when Audrey passed, and there are also quite a few who remember the day quite well. Then there were others, like me, who were alive then, but didn’t know about her, or were too young to remember what had happened. No matter where you are on that spectrum, you’re here now, and you remember her. We all remember and celebrate her in our own ways, and I’d like to share some of my ways, if you don’t mind.

We’ll start with the slightly nicer news first, which is that the thought-to-be-long-lost black and white ballgown from Sabrina, after being found hidden in a trunk amongst Debbie Reynold’s things and nearly donated to a local thrift shop, was sold at auction last month and went for a whopping $204,000! No word on who bought the dress, or what its future holds, since we never do see these again, do we? Continue reading “Family drama, and an iconic dress goes back into hiding”
While Christie’s has provided a sales number for the live auction held at their London flagship location, the online auction is ongoing, with the last items ending October 9. News is still scarce, but what I can say for certain is that Breakfast at Tiffany’s now holds the records for most expensive costume from a film, and most expensive film script ever sold at auction!
In case you’re an Audrey Hepburn fan without internet access, who doesn’t watch the news or read the papers, or have just woken up after an extremely long – and hopefully fulfilling – nap, you might not be aware of a large collection of Audrey’s personal items finishing going to auction at Christie’s London tomorrow. A lot of the items being sold live at auction, or at the ongoing internet auction that started September 19th and will continue until tomorrow, were once used in the traveling Timeless Audrey exhibit. After receiving Christie’s catalog for the auction today, it hit harder than ever that the era of Timeless Audrey is done.
As I’d said before, I’m really, incredibly happy to see the iconic Sabrina dress in the public eye. It hasn’t been getting quite as much attention as the Christie’s auction happening at the end of the month, but I’m sure the excitement will just build – besides, we still have about three weeks until the Debbie Reynolds & Carrie Fisher auctions begin!
While we’re all thrilled that the Sabrina gown has been found and shown to us again, what’s even more exciting is that the auction house, Profiles in History, appear to have also settled a 60 year old debate: who really made the couture frocks Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina?
