Who doesn’t love Audrey Hepburn?  Her timeless beauty and grace are legendary and rightfully so.  This week several pieces from Hepburn’s vast collection of couture were auctioned in London.

Among the rare items up for bid were a number of chic little black dresses by Valentino, stunning evening wear by Elizabeth Arden and beautiful couture pieces by her favorite designer of all: Hubert de Givenchy.  Many of the key pieces were a result of the famed collaboration between the young couturier and his muse.

Half of all the money raised at the auction will be donated to The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund and Unicef for their joint venture ‘All Children in School’ which aims to provide teaching for 115million children worldwide.
