Audrey Hepburn wasn't just a British actress active during Hollywood's golden age. She was also a model, dancer, and humanitarian, not to mention a fashion icon and role model to young women. Unfortunately, she passed away back in 1993, but her legacy has lived on in her her personal collection. So later this month, Audrey's most prized possessions will get showcased by Christie's at an auction in London, and the items are about as impressive as the actress herself was. But you better take out a second mortgage on your house, sell your car, or a kidney, because the prices are going to be steep!

Forget Neiman Marcus! Audrey Hepburn's personal collection is going on sale!

For the first time ever, Hepburn’s two sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, who were entrusted with these unique items, will go up for sale, giving Hepburn’s fans the opportunity to own a piece of her.

Why wouldn't you want to store your make-up in Hepburn's monogrammed case?

She traveled everywhere with it, and we can only imagine what a lifesaver it must have been. But it’ll only set you back $2,649.65 to $3,974.47.

This isn't just any beauty compact, this is Hepburn's beauty compact!

For the first time since Hepburn herself last looked into the mirror, you could be opening this up, looking in the tiny mirror and powder your nose for $5,299.30 to $7,948.95.

Some of the most intriguing pieces will come from Hepburn's own wardrobe collection.

Just check out this blue cloque dress by Givenchy Couture going for $7,948.95 to $10,598.60. Hubert de Givenchy was a close friend of Hepburn’s, so we wonder if she got a discount on it.

You'll feel like a superstar ready to walk the red carpet wearing this tiara.

It’s estimated to reach a bid of $529.93 to $794.89. Now that’s not too bad for a tiara that’ll make you feel like a Disney princess.

How about a little shut eye, cause beauty sleep was always important to Hepburn.

This blue satin sleep mask was owned by Hepburn, and is similar to the one used in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” As the more affordable item up for bid, you may only have to fork over $198.72.

Audrey's roles had one thing in common, and she played it so well.

In just about every movie she was in, she played someone who was classy and a member of the high society who tried wearing her troubles lightly. She also had a fashion sense and delicate thin frame that was to die for.

How about a pearl choker?

The bidding on this one will start at $927.38, but will likely go way up before the bidding is over. After all, a woman’s pearls in those days were more important than diamonds.

Get as excited as Audrey was when you read this typescript letter from UK Vogue.

This is a must have for any Hepburn fan. It’s signed by Diana Vreeland, from UK Vogue, which informed Audrey of how successful the issues in which she appeared on the cover was. And it’ll only set you back anywhere from $529.93 to $794.89.

How would you like to own the working script for "Breakfast at Tiffany's"?

The 1961 working script, includes deleted scenes, and has about 20 pages annotated by Hepburn herself for $79,489.50 to $119,234.25.

How about some Hepburn's ballet shoes?

Hepburn herself used these on her tootsies and there are two lots of three pairs of lime green, blue, and light blue going up for auction for about $7,948.95.

Own a piece of "My Fair Lady" memorabilia from 1963.

It’s the continental gold snuff box used in the film and is expected to go for bid for $6,600 to $10,560. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, you can pass up a chance to own a piece of classic Hollywood history.

Audrey Hepburn never went anywhere without her Burberry trench coat.

Now you can follow in her footsteps for $7,948.95 to $11,923.42. If all else fails, think of what a hit you’ll be as Columbo this Halloween.

This is a piece of movie history!

This is the call sheet from the 1967 film “Two for the Road” by 20th Century Fox, and will set you back about $397.45. You might want to get a frame for this beauty!

How about this pendant which belonged to Hepburn and was seen in the film "Roman Holiday"?

We cannot lie, it looks amazing. No, really, we can’t lie. The pendant is modeled after the Bocca della Verita in Italy, which you had to stick your hand in, and if it bit you, you were lying. The pendant is too small to be a lie detector, but it does come with pierced eyes, nose and mouth and will go up for bid for $794.89.

This black satin cocktail gown is one of two similar black satin dress from the Givenchy collection.

It’s similar to the one Hepburn wore in the 1963 movie “Charade” and has feathers and will likely be a hit at your next cocktail party. The fashion trendy item will go for $6,6241.25 to $105,986.

For example, how would you like to own an 8MM American director reflect camera from the 1960s for $2,649.65 to $3,974.47, or go retro with her rotary phone for $529.93?

It might not seem like much, but this was not just any lipstick holder.

This make-up accessory from Cartier, circa 1950, was commonly seen with Hepburn, cause a girl needs to touch up her lipstick constantly, especially in those days and it can be yours for $2,640 to $3,960.

You can enjoy playing the music for "Moon River" from 1961's "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

The sheet music for the lovely song, which was a hit in those days, will go up for bid for $529.93, and you’d be wise not to let something this amazing slip through your fingers.
