A collection of dresses and other wardrobe gems worn by beloved film star and style icon Audrey Hepburn is on display in Paris this week ahead of a charity auction at Sotheby’s in London.

Hats, belts, and plenty of Chanel handbags are among the items up for grabs. A black silk Givenchy dress she wore in the 1962 hit Paris When It Sizzles is among the 36 gowns for sale at the Dec. 8 auction that is expected to raise more than $164,000, Sotheby’s said Wednesday. Audrey’s dresses have historically fetched high prices at previous auctions. The pink cocktail dress she wore in the 1961 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, for instance, sold for $192,000 in New York in 2007.

Half of the proceeds from the sale will benefit The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund.
