It’s been called THE Little Black Dress because no other black dress is as famous as the Givenchy number actress Audrey Hepburn wore in 1961’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” The dress was so memorable, in fact, it reportedly sold at a Christie’s auction in London in 2006 for nearly $921,000 to an anonymous European, according to a 2006 StyleWatch article at People magazine’s website.
