New York Post – Breakfast at Tiffany’s
From the New York Post Article:
Holly Golightly’s celluloid moment was an instant style classic. Five decades after its debut, it girls are still taking notes.
By SERENA FRENCH
In 1961, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” set the fashion world alight. Fifty years on, the ladylike look is hotter than ever.
Coco Chanel may be lauded for inventing the little black dress, but no one wore it like Holly Golightly.
In spite of her boyish charms, Audrey Hepburn made moviegoers believe unreservedly in her character, the madcap romantic, dreaming of a life of wild glamour in the big city, with a wardrobe to match.
With frocks dreamed up by French couturier Hubert de Givenchy, Holly’s feminine style transcended party-girl glitz and became something truly timeless (no reality TV train wrecks here.) It’s a look that’s enjoying a major comeback this season – just last month, both Lady Gaga and Anna Faris stepped out in LBDs by Moschino that could have been plucked from a film still. Retro never looked so modern.
