Fans of Hollywood glamour have snapped up mementos from the collection of the late Audrey Hepburn at a London auction.
The star’s personal shooting script for Breakfast at Tiffany’s sold for 632,750 pounds ($846,619) at Christie’s on Wednesday — seven times its pre-sale estimate and one of many lots that smashed expectations.
A Tiffany bangle that was a gift to Hepburn from director Steven Spielberg — inscribed “you are my ‘inspiration'” — sold for 332,750 pounds.
Hepburn’s wardrobe proved a big draw, with a bidder paying 68,750 pounds for a Burberry trenchcoat. A black satin Givenchy cocktail gown worn in the 1963 film Charade sold for 68,750 pounds.
A satin sleep mask that had been expected to fetch up to 150 pounds sold for 6,250 pounds.
Christie’s said Thursday that the sale fetched a total of 4.6 million pounds ($6.2 million), seven times the pre-sale estimate.
The chic star of Roman Holiday, My Fair Lady and Breakfast at Tiffany’s died in 1993 at the age of 63.
Hepburn’s sons are selling about 500 items through live and online sales at Christie’s. The online sale runs to Oct. 4.
