My fair lady, indeed
The main attraction at the Debbie Reynold's auction may be the Seven Year Itch dress, but Audrey Hepburn's Ascot dress is the most iconic to me. Cecil Beaton's gown is so damn striking I can barely stand it. The ribbon and bows are so bold in contrast to the white lace, making the dress stand out in a room of fabulous costumes. Of course, a gargantuous hat always helps. I could have stared at it all day, but there was a long and extremely pushy line of old ladies behind me with bony elbows.
Here's the dress in all it's black and white glory.
