Hello again

Comments Off on Hello again 26 December 2007

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good holiday, if you celebrate anything. If not, then I hope you enjoyed a day off to laze around in your pajamas all day. 🙂 I’m sorry I’ve been MIA lately, I was silly enough to try and work two jobs during the holidays. Hit me with a fish the next time I get that ridiculous idea in my head! Thank you for your patience yet again, and here’s your bit of post-holiday news.

Christie’s had yet another film memorabilia auction on December 19th, but it didn’t really seem to make any major news outlets, at least not that I could find. This was very surprising! But here’s all of the Audrey Hepburn specific autions for you, since that’s what we’re interested in:

Vote for Audrey!

Comments Off on Vote for Audrey! 15 December 2007

I received an email today from the UK InStyle magazine, and they’ve just started a fun new survey about the most stylish costume on film. Our dear Audrey is mentioned not once, but twice! You can vote for Holly Golightly’s immortal little black dress from the opening scenes of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or the equally iconic black and white dress from the Ascot races in My Fair Lady.

showing your inner Audrey: part two

Comments Off on showing your inner Audrey: part two 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:

another Audrey Hepburn dress up for auction

Comments Off on another Audrey Hepburn dress up for auction 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!

Comments Off on audreybag.com is now open for business! 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. 🙂

stars of today channeling the stars of yesterday

Comments Off on stars of today channeling the stars of yesterday 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?

How to be your own fashion guru

1 Comment 29 October 2007

There are no two ways around it: Audrey Hepburn is a style icon. But what makes her an icon? What can you do to be your own style icon? According to Nina Garcia’s new book, The Little Black Book of Style, you just have to be yourself. What makes the great fashion icons Audrey, Jackie O., Marilyn Monroe stand out from the crowd is the fact that they ultimately forgot about what was in fashion from season to season and focused on what worked best for them, building their own style. Garcia and Givenchy think the same: both have said that anyone can be in fashion, buying the latest looks, but not everyone has style, knowing what works for them and making it their own.
