Audrey Hepburn’s My Fair Lady Ascot dress sold – again

Look like Audrey Hepburn with Filthy Rich

No Comments 18 March 2007

AZCentral.com has a story up about a hot new jewelry franchise called Filthy Rich. This store specializes in licensed reproductions of movie and celebrity jewelry, like Audrey’s pieces from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. While their website is still under construction, you can see a few Marilyn Monroe reproductions on Be The Boss, as well as franchise information if you were interested in selling their jewelry yourself. In the article from AZ Central, owner Laurin Ogawa (who started the business with her mum) says that the Marilyn jewelry and the Audrey Hepburn pieces always do well with the young girls. It’s nice to know that young girls aspire to dress and look like Audrey above some contemporary role models they could choose from.
