Hello again

No Comments 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:

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.

Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress on display in Harrod’s

No Comments 19 September 2007

Audrey Hepburn may have worn many little black dresses in her life, but that’s sort of what she’s known for, isn’t it? Her little black dress with the sequined fringe that she wore in Charade (which was recently auctioned off, coincidentally) is now on display in Harrod’s department store as part of their Harrod’s Timeless Luxury promotion. It will be on the fourth floor at the Georgian Restaurant in the Little Black Dress Exhibition, along with other famous LBDs. You should hurry, since it looks like the display will only be up through mid-October. You can read more about it here.

watch Charade for free!

A lesser-known piece of information for you: the fantastic Audrey Hepburn/Cary Grant feature Charade has actually slipped into the public domain! I don’t know how it happened, but it has, which means you technically don’t have to pay to watch or own this fantastic film. While I still recommend at least watching the Criterion Collection edition of this film with the commentary by director Stanley Donen and writer Peter Stone (those two men are hilarious!), I completely understand the $40 price tag being a little much for a lot of Audrey fans out there. In the meantime, though, you can sit in the comfort of your computer chair and watch this stylish caper completely free on You Tube:

"Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s" — a new book!

No Comments 18 January 2007

There’s yet another new picture book coming out on Audrey! This one, called Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Photographs by Howell Conant, features pictures of Audrey onset for publicity photos and candid pictures during filming of her most iconic film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The description on GermanArtBooks.com, which has the most information I can find yet, says that there are also fashion shoots, but it’s unclear if they are Tiffany’s related or not. All photos in the book were taken by Conant, who was also a good friend of Grace Kelly’s, and there is some text written by actress Leslie Caron (who was often referred to as “The Other Audrey Hepburn”). And here is the release information for various countries — at least as much as I could find at this time:

I received an email from Ellen Erwin, the Executive Director of the Children’s Fund this morning. Since it’s short, I’ll just copy and paste it for everyone to read:

Just to let you know, the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund website has been recently updated and we are redesigning a brand new flash website for launch next year. Thanks for the mention on your website. Will you let your visitors know that our website is current? Thanks so much and best regards

Isn’t that great? I can’t wait to see how it will change. And maybe they’ll post a full schedule of the exhibit’s tour in Europe . . .

Gossip

A blast from the past, plus an extended trailer

No Comments 03 November 2006

Audrey news seems slow today (I’ll refrain from making any Day of the Dead jokes), but I did find two fun things. The first is an excerpt from an old issue of Variety — from 1958, to be exact. If you’re not familiar with the “trade rag,” it’s written in slang, since it’s mainly for people in the entertainment industry who understand that silly talk. Anyway, the excerpt was from the set of Audrey’s latest movie, The Nun’s Story, and talks about her upcoming projects, including one that never made it off the ground. To read the whole article, click here.
