The auction includes Audrey Hepburn’s personally annotated scripts, original portraits from major photographers such as Cecil Beaton and Philippe Halsman, letters from other famous actors, directors, producers, writers, and luminaries, her extensive personal wardrobe, and more.
Each lot offered in Audrey Hepburn: The Personal Collection will be issued with a Certificate of Provenance, signed by Audrey Hepburn’s sons, Sean Hepburn Ferrer & Luca Dotti. All photographic material (only) will also be stamped as “From the Sale Audrey Hepburn: The Personal Collection, September 2017, Christie’s.”

This is the first time these remarkable items, which have remained with Audrey Hepburn’s family, have been offered at auction. Together, the auctions present a uniquely intimate glimpse into the personal life of one of Hollywood’s greatest stars.
