the buzz before the bidding

The dress will be up for auction in a little over 24 hours! If you're in the London area, then maybe you could swing by Christie's (85 Old Brompton Road) during their visiting hours and ogle the dress yourself before it's locked away forever by the lucky owner. And if, like most of us, you're not able to view it or the auction in person, you can always watch the auction live online, but you must make an account with them to watch. Also, there are rumors that Victoria Beckham, former Posh Spice and very vocal Audrey fan, will be present at the bidding and may try to nab the dress for herself. Erm...

There's also an article up about the dress, and tells women how to pick the right LBD for them -- just in time for the holidays! Read more here.

And there's a short article about major fashion houses getting into charity work, which you can read here. It mentions Gucci's work with UNICEF, as well as featuring pictures of the Gap's Inspi(red) campaign. (For what it's worth, I still think it's better to just give your money to a charity, rather than buying a cost inflated good that will only give a fraction of the profits to the charity -- usually less than 20% of the price.)

And lastly, I don't remember if I'd posted this before, but you can watch a young Audrey ballet dance in this 4 minute clip from Secret People, a film she made shortly before being cast in Gigi and Roman Holiday.
