"Breakfast at Tiffany’s"

Audrey Hepburn’s portrayal of Holly Golightly in the 1961 film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is among her most famous performances. In the course of the movie, she sports unforgettable clothes and accessories, like a mammoth cigarette holder that featured prominently in the film’s advertising.

The most famous piece of clothing in the movie is a black Givenchy dress worn by Hepburn in its opening scene. Though it was not the first “little black dress” in cinema history, it was instrumental in establishing it as an indispensible part of any woman’s wardrobe. In 2006, it was sold to an anonymous bidder at Christie’s auction house for $923,187.
