Portraits, personal letters and her own annotated film scripts will also be available, including her copy of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is valued at £80,000, alongside her script for 1963 film Charade, which is expected to sell for £25,000.


Hepburn’s sons Luca and Sean told BBC they are endorsing this sale in hopes that it will allow their mother’s “ever-growing base of admirers… to share her spirit.”

This groundbreaking auction is meant to pay tribute to the timeless style of the legendary Belgium-born actress, who is truly a icon both on and off stage.

During the Golden Age in Hollywood, Hepburn was ranked the third-greatest female screen legend by the American Film Institute and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

The Oscar-winning actress’ glory extended beyond the screen and runway. She spent much of her later life working with Unicef and pursuing meaningful charitable causes.
