Audrey and The Mother of all LBDs

Next week Christie's will auction the iconic little black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Here's what Clare Coulson of The Telegraph has to say about the mother of all little black dresses:

"That simple but instantly recognisable black gown, designed by Hubert de Givenchy, is expected to fetch about £70,000. It is a modest prediction for what is, arguably, the most copied piece of clothing in film history.

When Hepburn appeared in that LBD at the beginning of the film, in the role of Holly Golightly peering into the windows of Tiffany & Co while munching on a croissant from a brown paper bag, she raised the bar on what has become a wardrobe staple.

With her incomparable elegance and poise, she harnessed the power of the LBD. No other actress or model has made such an impact, before or since."

Now for the lucky one who gets this fabulous piece, what can I say! You'll be owning a piece of fashion history right there!
