Memorabilia from Péle, Audrey Hepburn and Kardashians on display at Newbridge Silverware

The Kardashian garments display at Newbridge Silverware

A new exhibition dedicated to silver screen star Audrey Hepburn has opened at Newbridge Silverware’s Museum of Style Icons.

The exhibition, which was launched recently by former RTE newsreader Anne Doyle, curates for the first time the Museum’s collection of garments worn by the actress, including a pink dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and a black beaded gown from Charade.

The display also includes an extensive collection of magazine front covers featuring Hepburn, plus a number of letters written to her father, who lived with his Irish wife in Merrion Square, Dublin.

The collection was curated by Pauline Doyle, Simone Hassett, Rachel Phelan, Marie Brennan and Noureen Qureshi.

William Doyle, CEO of Newbridge Silverware, remarked that the Hepburn collection is known to be one of the most impressive in existence.

Also new at the museum is a collection of garments worn by Kim and Khloe Kardashian, plus dresses featured on Mad Men stars January Jones and Christina Hendricks during a Rolling Stone photoshoot.

Meanwhile, an exhibition of Pelé memorabilia has just gone on display at the Museum of Style Icons.

The collection will be on display until April 11, when it goes for auction in London.

It features Pelé’s 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cup medals which are valued at $100,000-$200,000 each, his 1,000th game ball valued in the region of $40,000-$60,000, Pelé’s Santos FC game worn jersey valued at $8,000-$10,000 and his Jules Rimet Trophy which is estimated to sell for $400,000-$600,000, plus other items.
