Audrey Hepburn’s Oscar Dress to be sold at auction

Audrey Hepburn won an Oscar in 1954 for her role in “Roman Holiday” and the dress she wore on the night is one that is as famous as the film itself. In fact, it was the very same dress worn in the final scene of the movie for which she won the award. Hepburn had only slightly altered the dress for the evening to reflect a more modern style. Well for those of you that are Hepburn fans this dress is soon to come up for sale in a Kerry Taylor Auction here in London. While there is no official size, the measurements are: bust 32in, waist 24in. So if  you’re tiny you may be in luck! Imagine having this good luck charm hanging in your closet! The dress is estimated to fetch between £40,000-60,000 and will come up for auction on the 29th of November.

Here’s a video of Audrey wearing the dress as she accepts her Oscar…

And a trailer for Roman Holiday…
