In 1961 Hollywood film actress and style icon Audrey Hepburn appeared in the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, playing the character of socialite Holly Golighty. It was one of Hepburn’s most notable acting roles. However, the film was significant in that it reinforced Hepburn’s status as a style icon, and it brought about the influence of one of the most famous fashion pieces of the 20th century – the ‘little black dress’. The Little Black Dress (or LBD as some like to call it) is a classic fashion item, and it is a timeless piece, so it has never stayed out of the fashion history books. It was a Givenchy dress created by French designer Hubert de Givenchy, who also happened to be a very close friend of Hepburn, and it was memorably worn by Hepburn in the opening scene of the film. The Little Black Dress is the dress for the classy, elegant and sophisticated woman. It is the dress for the ultimate style icon, and you can emulate the look here with i the stylist!
