This weekend, while I watched the masterpiece that is Breakfast at Tiffany’s (along with two other Hepburn movies) , I remembered how I’ve been planning to have breakfast at Tiffany’s myself. It also reminded me of how much I love that era and its fashion. I adore the glitz and glamour and the class — the grace that old Hollywood possessed.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s features style icon and actress, Audrey Hepburn, a hilariously interesting party scene and everyone’s favorite little black dress. Besides the obvious love story, the movie is a stylistic representation of its time, and has also had a huge impact on what we wear today. Holly Golightly’s oversized sunglasses, skinny pants and swing jackets have become fashionable staples in many womens wardrobes.
