HEPBURN FROCK ON THE BLOCK: The little black dress Audrey Hepburn wore in her iconic role as Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” will be auctioned for charity at Christie’s in London on Dec. 5. Designed by Hubert de Givenchy, the dress is expected to fetch between $92,675 and $129,745 and will benefit the City of Joy Aid, a Calcutta-based nonprofit that helps India’s underprivileged children. The former designer donated the little black number from 1961 to City of Joy Aid founders Dominique Lapierre and his wife, who is also named Dominique, who have turned it over to Christie’s for the sale. Unsuccessful bidders may find some solace in the film’s 45th anniversary commemorative DVD.LIZ GETS RUGS: Liz Claiborne Inc. has signed an agreement in principle with Nourison to design, manufacture and market area rugs and accent rugs under the Liz Claiborne Home brand name.
