Happy Thanksgiving!

No Comments 23 November 2007

To all who celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a good holiday.

Also, thank you all for your infinite patience. Updates may be a little spotty for another week, since I decided to head south to visit my family at the last minute, so I’m away from home for a while. But I’ll try my best to make updates as often as possible!

I’ll also hold off on announcing the contest winners until I get back, since I can’t ship the goodies until then, but I promise I will make it worth the while of all of the contest entrants.

Thank you again for your understanding and patience!

apologies

Hi everyone. I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk about the contest winners yesterday like I promised, but my mum was in a very nasty car wreck yesterday morning, and obviously that threw me off my game a bit. I didn’t even get around to drawing names from a hat. Mum will be okay, just some awful bruises and four stitches and a totaled car. So tomorrow afternoon I’ll post the winners and we should be all caught up.

Thank you for your understanding!

showing your inner Audrey: part two

No Comments 12 November 2007

The costume contest is closed now, and we had so many fab entries! Even though all of these lovely ladies were channeling Audrey Hepburn, they each managed to have their own style as well and be completely unique about it. To give each of these ladies some room to shine I’m going to break up the last of the entries (the ones okay with sharing their pictures, anyway) into two groups. And so, without further ado, is part two of your Audrey style:

Audrey Hepburn poster auction this weekend!

No Comments 08 November 2007

If you’re a more serious Audrey Hepburn collector with some money to burn, you might be interested in a huge vintage poster auction going on this weekend. The Fifth Annual Hollywood Poster Auction is happening November 10th and 11th in New York at the Hotel Pennsylvania. The auction features a huge collection of vintage Hollywood film posters, from early Garbo through the 60s. If you were interested in bidding but won’t be in New York at the time, you can also place an absentee bid online through their eBay profile and bid live at the time of the auction. You can view the whole collection that will be up for grabs here, or just look at the Audrey posters here.

another Audrey Hepburn dress up for auction

No Comments 07 November 2007

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many Audrey Hepburn dresses up for auction in such a short period of time! Just this morning it was announced that Christie’s would have a film memorabilia sale at its auction house in South Kensington on December 19th, and a dress made for and worn by Audrey in Charade will be up for sale. Unfortunately, Christie’s website doesn’t have any details about this auction up yet, so I can’t find out which dress it is. I’ll keep checking, though, and let you know as soon as I find any information.

In the meantime, you can read more about the auction as a whole here, and see some other great pieces that will be up for sale that day.

audreybag.com is now open for business!

No Comments 05 November 2007

After a little bit of a delay, audreybag.com is officially open for business and ready to take orders. Apparently, the site was delayed by just a couple of days because Luca Dotti was in charge of designing and maintaining the site, so communications had to go from Italy, where Luca is, to Santa Monica, California, where the Children’s Fund offices are. So for all you curious types out there who wonder what Luca’s up to, now you know. 🙂

Are you in the market for a small piece of Audrey Hepburn memorabilia, maybe one that isn’t instantly recognizable? Then I may have the auction for you! Bonhams & Butterfields is having an auction in Los Angeles on December 9th full of film and animation memorabilia. One of their lots, which they are making quite a big deal about, is the inkwell from Professor Henry Higgins’s desk in My Fair Lady.

stars of today channeling the stars of yesterday

No Comments 01 November 2007

Us Weekly’s website has a new article up about the celebrities of today channeling the stars of yesterday. Thankfully, there’s no mention of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears here! And, not surprisingly, Natalie Portman is considered yet again to be our generation’s answer to Audrey Hepburn, not just for her looks, but for her humanitarian work helping third world women with FINCA International. Don’t forget the fact that Natalie donned the most famous little black dress in the world (left) before it was sold at auction, too.

What do you think?
