UAE residents can participate in the Audrey Hepburn live auction
Here's some of the actress's memorabilia that's still up for grabs online, while every item in the on-site auction sold for considerably more than its estimated price
Until about 6pm UAE time on Wednesday, October 4, you can bid for actress Audrey Hepburn’s personal items, which are currently being auctioned online at Christies.com
The on-site auction, which was held at the end of September at Christie’s London, was a clear indication of just how investment-worthy the actress’s memorabilia is. For instance, her working script for the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s sold for £632,750 (Dh3 million), almost seven times more than its estimated price. The item also broke the world record for a movie script.
Likewise, Hepburn’s Tiffany bangle fetched Dh1.6 million (it was estimated at Dh25,000); her Givenchy gown went for Dh335,000 (estimate: Dh73,000); and her Cartier lipstick holder sold for Dh275,000 - almost 19 times its pre-sale estimate.
So, without losing more time, here are the items you can quote a price for today, and the current bids they were on at about 12 noon.
