Famous Black Dress

Filed under: Auctions, Charity, Design, News


I know girls love to shop and they spend ridiculous amounts of money on dresses,.. but this is unheard of!  Would you believe me if I told you somebody spent $808,000 on a dress!?….  Let me repeat $808,000,.. GASP!  It’s completely crazy. Right?>

Of course I should mention that it wasn’t just any old black dress. It was the famous black dress Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” The best part is all proceeds from the sale of the Givenchy dress will benefit City of Joy Aid – a charity for India’s poor. (sigh of relief) I don’t even want to know how much the matching shoes, purse and earrings will cost. Unless it’s for a good cause ;)
