Breakfast at Tiffany's

Arguably Audrey Hepburn's greatest and most stylish film - Breakfast at Tiffany's ! 

The first scene , where Audrey is eating breakfast outside Tiffany's wearing a full length black gown with a chunky pearl necklace scattered with diamonds , as well as oversized black shades.


I love the scene where she runs around looking for her alligator shoes , and then comes out immaculately  dressed , with a gorgeous felt hat decorated with a thick cream ribbon and black crystal earrings.And then says " How do I look?" Well , Audrey , you look stunning!


In complete contrast to the previous scenes Audrey sits on top of a window sill ,  singing " Moon River" with a handkerchief tied around her head wearing a basic top and black drainpipe jeans.Trying to elegantly play the guitar whilst sitting on the ledge of the window sill is not easy, and yet she does it so well!



Basically what I'm trying to express is , how she wears clothes with such elegance and self-awareness whilst still convincing us that she is Holly the socialite and not just plain , old ( yet fabulous) Audrey!
