Sparkling on the red car­pet

The Mail on Sunday - - Femail -

HOLLY GO­LIGHTLY’S 1961 bee­hive and jew­elled head­piece was per­haps partly in­spired by this paste tiara, above, that Hepburn fre­quently wore with white gloves, be­low, on the red car­pet at film pre­mieres in the 1950s. She is pic­tured, right, wear­ing them as she pre­pares for the 1957 pre­miere of The Nun’s Story. Her glam­our was a side of her lit­tle seen by her sons. Luca says: ‘We only saw her in jeans and a top! Even­tu­ally I re­alised she was spe­cial be­cause pho­tog­ra­phers would fol­low her.’ Four pairs of gloves are be­ing sold as one lot.
