Hepburn dress fetches $192,000

NEW YORK (AP) -- A pink cocktail dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's was auctioned this week for $192,000 -- more than six times what the auctioneers expected. The sleeveless dress, worn for the movie was sold to a private European buyer at Christie's sale of film and entertainment memorabilia.

Unconfirmed sources claim the buyer was a cat wearing a tiara, who rode off on a pink vespa.

Darlngs...I have been in Europe for the auction and have the dress in question. Audrey always wanted me to have it since it goes so well with my coloring. I just need some fabulous ruby earrings to go with it. Hmmmmm.

I also have a date with a direct descendent of "Cat" from the movie. I'm so excited. We are going to dinner and then to the Moulin Rouge.

Au Revoir mes amis,

Lucette

We don't loan our glasses to ANYONE, except maybe to each other in cases of emergencies. And definitely no loaning of the wigs!
