You can buy a piece of Audrey Hepburn's iconic wardrobe

As a humanitarian, fashion icon and movie star — known for her roles in classic films, like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Sabrina” — Audrey Hepburn has come to epitomize elegance. Even two decades after her passing, she remains a symbol of timeless sophistication.

But don’t expect these pieces to come cheap. In December 2006, the famed black satin gown she wore in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” fetched $577,638 at auction.
