About this deal

And we cannot overlook Holly’s hairdo; her party look is complete with blonde streaks that accentuate the height of her bouffant. Well, when I get [the mean reds] the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.” – Holly Golightly, Breakfast at Tiffany’s The comedic-yet-tragic story follows the transformation of Holly Golightly (played by Audrey Hepburn) from Texan wild child to a refined and polished wannabe-socialite– a title she hopes to achieve through questionable means. Meanwhile, Holly Golightly’s wardrobe has become a coveted and admired collection unto itself. We explore the iconic costumes and jewelry that were such an integral and significant part of the film.

It has gold embroidered eyebrows and eyelashes, and a gold tie, adding a fun and whimsical touch to her sleep outfit! You know Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Or at least you think you do. How could you not? It is, after all, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. So go ahead and tell us the plot, we’ll wait… The lavender earplugs are quite the quintessential 1960s fashion accessory for the style icon, which continues to be copied to this day by costume makers around the world trying to recreate Holly Golightly’s charming Sleep Costume!Holly Golightly chatters with her new neighbor, telling him about how she’s crazy about Tiffanys, as it’s the perfect place to cheer yourself up, when you’re down, which she calls “having the case of the reds.”

Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly is also wearing lavender and gold earplugs with tassels that she comically removes and replaces to hear what her visitor has to say. Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly is wearing an oversized white tuxedo sleep shirt. It is a pullover style and has a tuxedo half-button front. She then rushes around her flat getting ready to go to Sing Sing (the prison) for a visit, explaining to Paul she’s visiting a man who was alleged to be part of the maffia, but it could never be proven.Yet, while we have Givenchy to thank for placing the LBD firmly at the centre of a woman’s eveningwear wardrobe, the work of costume designer Edith Head is often unfairly dismissed. Despite having already won six Academy Awards for her work on films including Roman Holiday, Sabrina and All About Eve, when it came to Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it was Givenchy who received all the credit, with Head being demoted to ‘costume supervisor’. The audience is introduced to the striking Ms. Golightly as she elegantly steps out of her cab in the wee hours of the morning and seemingly floats towards the New York Tiffany & Co. store windows. Her column dress was designed by famed French designer Hubert de Givenchy, a personal friend of Audrey Hepburn. The dress was so fitted for Hepburn’s narrow frame, two were actually made: one for standing at the windows and one for walking which had a long slit down the side.
