Earlier this week, a black cocktail dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film How to Steal a Million sold for nearly $100,000 at a London auction. The Givenchy dress was estimated at just a third of that value -- after all, it's not like it was the dress from Breakfast at Tiffany's! -- but it was worn by Hepburn, and people will pay through the nose to own a piece of a star's legacy.
