On the 50th anniversary of the Paramount Pictures film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, fans paid homage to Audrey Hepburn by dressing up in her iconic outfit.
Dolled up as Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly, they gathered at New York’s Nino Ristorante to celebrate the day. Wearing the trademark little black dress and pearls, Latracia Harper said there were reasons to celebrate the occasion: “I’m in love with Audrey Hepburn and have been since I was a little kid. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favourite films that my mum and I always watch. I just love her class, her elegance, her amazing acting talent, and also she was a great humanitarian.”
Michelle Monachino, also at the event, explained that for her, the film does stand the test of time: “Does it still stand up today? I think if it was made today it wouldn’t be popular. Maybe it would be if they did it with the original Truman Capote book. That was a little racier. But I find myself putting it on all the time, so I would say yes, it does still stand up today.”
The film won two Academy Awards and was nominated for three others, including Best Actress for Hepburn
Breakfast at Tiffany’s was recently released on Blu-Ray to commemorate the anniversary.
