There was a lot up on the auction block this week at Christie's. Yesterday was their Rock & Pop Memorabilia auction. Beatles lyrics penned by Paul McCartney (that's Sir Paul McCartney, to you) went for $197,000. The song? An early version of Maxwell's Silver Hammer from 1968. Jimi Hendrix's 1968 Fender Stratocaster (modified to accommodate his left-handed use) sold for $168,000.
The big sale happened today though, at another Christie's auction. The iconic Givenchy black dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" sold for $807,000. Just last month Natalie Portman wore the dress in her Harper's Bazaar photoshoot. The dress is reportedly a size 1, and it looks more like a costume on this Christie's employee.
