Audrey Hepburn was a major style icon of the 20th Century. Aided by the young couturier Hubert de Givenchy, the film star became the personification of chic elegance in the 1950s and 60s. Her trademark was simplicity and seemingly effortless sophistication. Givenchy said of her "All the responsibility for the way Audrey looked is hers. She made the selections." Jane goes to see a collection of Audrey’s clothes, hats and belts, including the ivory satin bridal gown designed for Audrey Hepburn by the Fontana Sisters for her planned marriage to James (later Lord) Hanson. An historic collection of Audrey Hepburn couture and accessories will be for sale with Kerry Taylor Auctions, in association with Sotherby’s on Tuesday 8th December 2009 at 2pm at La Galleria, Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, London
