"Once she found something she liked, she got them in a dozen colors," says Christie's Private Collections director Adrian Hume-Sayer, noting that Hepburn's passion for ballet flats was groundbreaking: Before her, "women did not wear ballet flats in public."

"Before an important event she’d choose from a Givenchy fashion show, then they would modify it," says Robert Wolders, her partner from 1980 until her death in 1993. "Audrey might eliminate a flower arrangement or a bow." 10 of 13 GOLDEN TICKET Courtesy Christie's Images Ltd. This golden ticket stub for the European premiere of Breakfast at Tiffany's will be sold alongside a program from the night, both of which Hepburn kept as keepsakes. Her working script from the film is also up for auction and is expected to go for at least £60,000 ($77,096). 11 of 13 COCKTAIL GOWN, GIVENCHY COUTURE Courtesy Christie's Images Ltd. Hepburn "wasn't a shopaholic," says Pamela Keough, author of Audrey Style. "Audrey made her own rulebook with ballet slippers, cropped pants, boat-neck sweaters. She definitely did not have a stylist. That’s why she was Audrey Hepburn." 12 of 13 A POWDER COMPACT BY CIARDETTI, FIRENZE Courtesy Christie's Images Ltd. Hepburn's compact mirror and powder case has her initials emblazoned on its cover and is expected to go for between £2,000-3,000 ($2,569-$3,854). 13 of 13 BLACK SILK COCKTAIL GOWN, GIVENCHY COUTURE Courtesy Christie's Images Ltd. Hepburn loved a little black dress — especially by her close friend, designer Hubert de Givenchy. The dress' lack of labels suggests it was worn by a runway model.
