ENGLISH


Christie’s is delighted to present for auction the personal collection of the screen legend, fashion icon and humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn.

Part I of the collection will be offered at Christie’s London, with Part II being offered in an online-only sale running alongside. The auctions will include Audrey Hepburn’s personally annotated scripts from her best-loved films, including Breakfast at Tiffany’s, original portraits from major photographers such as Cecil Beaton and Philippe Halsman, her extensive personal wardrobe and more.

This is the first time these remarkable items, which have remained with Audrey Hepburn’s family, have been offered at auction. Together, the auctions present a uniquely intimate glimpse into the personal life of one of Hollywood’s greatest stars.

Explore the exhibition at Christie’s London from 22–26 September, and join us on 25 September for the Audrey Hepburn Christie’s Late, an evening of special events including a screening of one of Hepburn’s best-loved films.
