VINTAGE INSPIRED: Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

Audrey is one of my all time favorite fashion icons and actresses. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) is my favorite movie of hers. So much that the poster I included for an outfit reference, is hanging in the front hall of my home. The character Holly Golightly is very high fashion, which is a dramatic change from her country roots. If you haven't seen the film, I highly suggest that you watch it.


I don't consider this look to be a costume, since it's a great classic look. Still, I'll slip it in the costume link above, in case anyone wants to do this as costume for any reason. I consider it a better look for formal events (though perhaps without the tiara) than costume parties (with the tiara!). This film did create the term "Little Black Dress" (LBD). Often this look is worn with a shorter dress (knee length), but as you can see from the other photo, it was full length. Either way, it taught ladies the importance of a Little Black Dress in their wardrobe. If you don't have one, I'M AGHAST! Ok, not really, but you should purchase one that you look and feel fabulous in. Or, if you are like me, you should own several...but I love black. The Winter is a great time to find great black dresses. I consider it an investment piece, so spend a little bit more than you would on say a causal summer dress. You'll wear it for years, and you want it to last a long time!

Her makeup look for this movie is more dramatic than her look in her 1950s films. Here are two different tutorials showing you how to achieve a similar look to her "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Makeup.
