This is my first Audrey Hepburn postcard – Whoopee. The one on my notice board was a greetings card from GB. Isn’t she beautiful? And a personality to match.

Audrey Hepburn has beaten modern celebrities, including Cheryl Cole and Kate Moss, to be named most stylish woman in a new poll by Oxfam.  

The winning bid for Audrey Hepburn's “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” dress surpassed all expectations and resulted in a windfall for charity City of Joy Aid. UK auctioneers Christie’s had forecast a sale price of £50,000-£70,000 ($98,000-$137,000) for the trademark black dress, but the final sum of £467,200 ($914,000) has set a new world record for a dress made for a film.
