Hollywood actor Natalie Portman is auctioning off the 35-year-old Givenchy dress ? one she wore for the cover shoot of the November issue of style magazine Harpers Bazaar, in an effort to help Indias poor.
The Star Wars actress is hoping that the auction of the little black dress, which was once worn by Audrey Hepburn in cult film Breakfast At Tiffanys, will gather enough funds for charity.
Proceeds of the auction to be held in December this year at the Christies Auction House in London will go to City Of Joy Aid – a charity organisation that helps the downtrodden in India, reports Contactmusic.com.
The legendary dress is expected to fetch more than 94,000 dollars.
While talking about the dress, Portman had described her feelings, saying, I really felt like Hepburn, so very graceful suddenly. I could never measure up to Audrey Hepburn; but her elegance while wearing this dress, there are no words.
