I'm not the only one who likes it. The famous pink dress sold at Christie's New York Auction House "along with a variety of other film memorabilia... costumes for leading ladies from classic movies such as Tippi Hedren in The Birds, Barbara Striesand in Funny Girl and Elizabeth Taylor's turn as a Southern belle in Raintree Country. Hepburn's pink dress was estimated to sell for $20,000 to $30,000 but the prediction was that it would likely easily sail over those numbers during the auction." And it did. The pink dress sold for a solid $192,000.
I guess if I had the money, if there was anything I was going to collect it would be amazing costumes from my favourite films. Especially the films that were seriously scripts to remember. I've watched this one a million times and it still gets to me. I have memories of when the tomboy I was would put on a princess dress and pretend I was a lady while I watched her, when my mom used to sing Moon River while she did the dishes, when I sat in front of my mirror in my room, putting on my clip-on earrings and say to noone in particular
"You could always tell what kind of a person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you. I must say, the mind reels."
