more Audrey Hepburn dolls!

Comments Off on more Audrey Hepburn dolls! 21 September 2007

As you may know by now, I’m a pretty big fan of Audrey Hepburn paper dolls — the virtual kind, since I haven’t yet found any real paper ones. (Previous dolls are here and here.) Well today I received an email from Elizabeth of Cartoon Emporium, and they’ve just put up a new Audrey Hepburn doll! I love this doll because they did a really great job on Audrey’s face, and unlike some other dolls, this actually features clothes from Audrey’s movies. You can play with Audrey here, if you’d like. And thank you to Elizabeth for sharing this and indulging my weaknesses. 🙂

New Audrey Hepburn goodies coming soon!

Comments Off on New Audrey Hepburn goodies coming soon! 12 September 2007

You can tell that the holiday season is coming ’round again, because new Audrey products are coming out all at once now. We’ve already discussed the new, 50th anniversary DVD of Funny Face coming October 2nd, but also to be released that day is a new Audrey Hepburn boxed set (left). This new set features five great films: Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and Paris When it Sizzles. Wow!

This is in addition to the already much hyped Audrey Hepburn: A Life in Pictures book that I reviewed earlier, and a re-release of the wonderful Audrey Hepburn’s Enchanted Tales, an audio CD where Audrey reads classic fairy tales. The book and CD both come out November 1st in the US. You can either start saving your pennies now, or start putting together that wishlist and conveniently leaving it out in front of all your friends and family. 😉

Goodbye, José; please learn by example

Comments Off on Goodbye, José; please learn by example 09 September 2007

As many of you might know by now, last week José Luis de Vilallonga died at age 83. Jose was known in the Audrey Hepburn world as the man who played the dashing Brazilian boyfriend of Holly Golightly, José da Silva Pereira. José was a man of many talents, though, as he was also an author and a highly respected aristocrat, writing as a journalist and publishing the official biography of King Juan Carlos of Spain. You can read more about José’s fascinating life here.

A close second

Comments Off on A close second 24 June 2007

Clothing site Miss Butterfly recently held an Internet poll to determine which film dress is the most iconic. Unfortunately, Audrey came in second place with the record-breaking black column dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, being beat out by Marilyn Monroe’s equally iconic white dress from The Seven Year Itch. If it’s any consolation, at least Audrey made it a close second without showing her knickers. 🙂 You can read more about the poll and its winners here.

Holly Golightly is a puzzle

Comments Off on Holly Golightly is a puzzle 05 June 2007

Literally. I was out today shopping for some new board games (Cranium in particular — does a better board game exist?), and came across this lovely 1,000 piece puzzle! I haven’t been out to get any new puzzles lately, so I wasn’t looking for an Audrey one, but this one is really fantastic. A Breakfast at Tiffany’s poster that hasn’t been used to death with great use of colours, and Ravensburger makes excellent, high-quality puzzles that will last and last, so you can put Audrey Hepburn together again and again. You can order this puzzle online to be shipped to you, and their website is multilingual as well, so click here to choose the country that’s closest to you to start shopping.

Audrey Hepburn’s pink cocktail dress to be on display in Ireland?

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn’s pink cocktail dress to be on display in Ireland? 01 June 2007

I have only found one news source as of yet, but it looks as if the winner of the hot pink cocktail dress worn by Audrey Hepburn during filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s has indeed been identified, despite their request to remain anonymous. According to RTÉ.ie, the new owner of the size zero dress is Newbridge Silverware. The company purchased the dress to display in their new style museum which opens tomorrow in County Kildare.

I’m not doubting the validity of this story per se, and it would be really fantastic to have someone purchase an iconic dress that Audrey actually wore and display it for everyone to see, but I’m just a little wary because no one else is reporting this — yet, anyway. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Audrey Hepburn’s pink cocktail dress sold for $192,000

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn’s pink cocktail dress sold for $192,000 31 May 2007

Today was the big Christie’s auction for yet another round of Audrey Hepburn memorabilia. This time the big seller was a hot pink cocktail dress actually worn by Audrey during filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and sold for nearly ten times its estimated selling price of $20,000-30,000 US dollars. The winner of the dress was a European bidder who wished to remain anonymous. If you remember, the same thing happened with the black dress sold last December, and it eventually came out that it was bought by the House of Givenchy, so maybe the identity will be revealed in time.

new Hepburn book delayed?

Comments Off on new Hepburn book delayed? 30 May 2007

The last time I mentioned Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it was to note that the release date for the book was May 28th. That apparently hasn’t happened, though Amazon and Barnes and Noble still list the release date as May 2007. Well, they’ve only got two days left! Hopefully this book won’t be as delayed as late as the (lovely and cute) Taschen Icons book was last year.

Also, I apologize for the lack of regular updates recently. I’ve been overfull on work recently and just really needed some time to rest and catch up with myself. Hopefully, I’m all caught up now and can get back to some exciting Audrey news. Remember that her pink Breakfast at Tiffany’s cocktail dress goes up for auction on Wednesday! It’s bound to exceed the estimated sale price.

Grace Kelly follows Audrey Hepburn’s footsteps

Comments Off on Grace Kelly follows Audrey Hepburn’s footsteps 21 May 2007

By now everyone must have heard about the Timeless Audrey exhibit. If you haven’t, I shall refresh your memory: it’s a traveling exhibit of memorabilia and personal items from Audrey Hepburn’s public and private life, put together in an intimate, open show where you’re close enough to actually touch certain items if you are so inclined. In fact, Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund executive director Ellen Erwin once said that people were a little too free to touch things — women would walk off with Audrey’s scarves! Anyway, this exhibit was around in New Orleans for a while, then toured Japan extensively for two years. It’s being refurbished right now and is set to tour Europe next year, and who knows where it will go next?
