Breakfast at Tiffany’s

You can always tell what kind of person a man thinks you are by the earrings he gives you” ­-Holly Golightly-

When Audrey Hepburn ate a Danish pastry while gazing at a Tiffany’s window display; the LBD, up-do hair, pearls and oversized sunglasses look she sported became the go to outfit in every woman’s wardrobe around the world – both in the 60s, and today.

Audrey’s character Holly Golightly had that sense of old Hollywood glamour about her. Sales of triple-strand pearl necklaces soared as did sleeveless dresses and oversized sunglasses. The look was simple, polished, classic, and glamorous and made Hepburn an icon.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s was a cinematic fashion show for the fashion label Givenchy which launched its designer Hubert de Givenchy into the mainstream American market and started a celebrity-designer collaboration, the likes of which we have never seen again.

Holly’s look consisted of long black gowns, the iconic beige trench (a big trend A/W10), the classic Chanel bags (oh how I do want one!), which are all still around and “in fashion” today = TIMELESS.

THE LOOK:

-Strands of pearls

-A LBD (every girl should own one)

-A long black gown

-A beige trench coat

-A classic quilted style handbag
