Time to go shopping ??????

The lovely lace dress that Audrey Hepburn wore to accept her Oscar in 1954 for Roman Holiday is up for auction.

The ivory colored now iconic lace gown that Hepburn wore when she collected her one and only Oscar which she got for Best Actress will be going on auction by the end of this month.

The piece was reportedly adapted from a version designed by Edith Head that the actress wore in the last scene of the film in 1952.

She had the bodice changed by Givenchy to make it more of an evening gown. The delicate, sleeveless and belted lace dress features a full, flounced skirt and two spaghetti straps on the back.

The vintage lace dress was then stored away in a box at the bottom of a wardrobe, until it was decided to sell it, giving it to Kerry Taylor Auctions.

The gorgeous lace dress is slated to bring between $64,101 to $96,170! The auction is scheduled for Tuesday, November 29 at 2:00 pm at La Galleria on 30 Royal Opera Arcade in Pall Mall, London.
