Fashion History - The Little Black Dress

image contributed by illesdori. http://www.photobucket.com/
Every woman has at least one little black dress in her wardrobe.
It all started with this dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's (Paramount, 1961) and designed by Hubert de Givenchy.

In 2006, the dress was sold for $1 million at auction.

Proceeds were given to the City of Joy Aid charity which helps underprivileged children in India. Hepburn dedicated her later years to helping children in improverished countries.
