Buy the style of one of the best dressed women in the world...if you have a few thousand to spare!

For three days, starting on December 8th, Audrey Hepburn's clothes and accessories will be auctioned at The Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, London in the biggest ever-sale of the actress' clothing.

Hepburn's style was classic, subtle and chic. It is no wonder that women the world over have for years, and will for years, look to her for inspiration. She adopted a 'less is more' attitude when dressing which oozed class and style. With this she had an innocent and slightly vulnerable side to her which created the charming yet delicate persona that created an icon.

Due to her close friendship with Hubert De Givenchy the actress had some iconic pieces, with the designer creating many of her film wardrobes. Obviously with this, the auction is Givenchy heavy (not that this is a bad thing!). Here a few of the fabulous pieces on offer for those who have a few thousand saved up for a rainy day...

Givenchy, Haute Couture evening coat, estimated at 800 to 1,200 GBP

Givenchy, Haute Couture cocktail dress, worn to promote 'Paris When it Sizzles', estimated at 8,000 to 10, 000 GBP

Givenchy, Haute Couture ball gown, worn in 'Love in the Afternoon', estimated at 2,000 to 3,000 GBP

Givenchy, Haute Couture cocktail dress, worn in 'How to Steal a Million', estimated at 15,000 to 20,000 GBP
Hmmmm, perhaps I will need to watch Hepburn's 'How to Steal a Million' to get some pointers so I can have a piece of the auction action!
