Among the eye-catching items to go on display were three dresses once owned by curvy Kim.

They included a pink dress worn in March 2014 from London label Awake as well as a cream Chloe coat she wore to Paris fashion week two years ago.

Unveiled to a group of guests who were bussed down from Dublin for the party, the exhibition also contains a large number of clothes worn by Hepburn from both her movies and personal wardrobe.

It also has a number of letters from the actress to her father, who lived in Dublin from the 1960s until his death in 1980.

The show also has dresses from sex symbols January Jones and Christina Hendricks.

Attendees at the launch included former RTE newsreader Anne Doyle as well as Celia Holman Lee.

Jenny Buckley was there with Holly White as well as Aisling O'Loughlin, and Martin Nolan of Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills.

Newbridge Silverware CEO William Doyle started the museum as a hobby and now curates iconic pieces from auctions that take place all over the world.
