I was asked by Boohoo.com to style a dress after a classic fashion icon I admire. I immediately thought of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I had watched that movie when I was younger, and I just revisited it over the Christmas holiday.
I loved it.
Everything about it is fabulous - the outfits, the music & Mr. Yunioshi in particular.
What's so wonderful about Audrey Hepburn's style as Holly Golightly is that it's both classic and eclectic. Holly is often spotted throughout the film wearing a little black dress with gorgeous statement jewelry. When I laid eyes on the fringe dress above, an image of Holly came to mind. I could picture her wearing this dress with a cocktail in hand (how she spends about 90 percent of the movie) hosting a great soiree in her chic NYC apartment.
I had a lot of fun taking these photos, as I've never styled an outfit with a specific person in mind. I have to say, I think the pictures are pretty convincing. All I need to do is lose 40 pounds and people can start calling me Ms. Golightly.
