Sotheby's and Christie's are eternal rivals. On September 26, the first one puts up for sale the personal collection of Vivien Leigh, the next day the most interesting auction awaits fans of the creativity and style of another famous actress. Audrey Hepburn: The Personal Collection is the first auction of Audrey Hepburn's personal belongings from a collection owned by her family. Already, at the presale exhibition at Christie's headquarters on King Street, you can see items from her wardrobe, mainly Givenchy Couture, photographs from her own archive, dating from 1953-1968, when the actress was at her peak, personal copies of scripts, personal letters as well as cute trinket accessories.

One of the most elegant women of the 20th century, Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993), became famous for her leading roles in the films "Roman Holiday" (awarded the Oscar statuette), "My Fair Lady", "Breakfast at Tiffany's", as well as her charitable activities as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. “We have preserved our feelings for Audrey and her personal belongings, each of which embodies her choice and philosophy of life,” commented the sons of the actress Luca Dotti and Sean Hepburn-Ferrer. “24 years after her death, we have selected a collection of items to share with a growing army of fans of her style and talent.”

Estimate items range from £ 100 to £ 80,000. According to preliminary estimates, the most expensive of the 256 lots is a copy of the script of the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's".
