Staring: Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard
Director: Blake Edwards
Breakfast at Tiffany's is truely iconic within the fashion world for 'That Black Dress' that Audrey Hepburn wears outside Tiffany's within the first few moments in the film, as well as the estonishing beauty of every outfit that Audrey Hepburn wears throughout. However what is ofter underplayed is the highly tailored and elegant style of her co-star, George Peppard.
The film is based loosely on the novella by Truman Capote following the exuberant, eccentric but somewhat heart-breaking character of '40s socialite Holly Golightly (Hepburn). Paul Varjak (Peppard), a writer, who moves into an apartment in her building becomes mesmerized by vivacious Holly and the world that surrounds her and with Hollys instant approchability, they become friends.
Paul, nicknamed 'Fred' by Holly due to his similarity in looks to her brother Fred, adopts a preppy academic style through the film. Typical of the early 1960s fashion, we rarely see 'Fred' out of a suit, shirt and tie.
The Trench Coat
Another iconic image from this film is the final scene where Holly and 'Fred' embrace in the rain after Fred finds Holly's abandoned 'Cat'. Both wearing classic trench coats in the pouring rain, their matching style makes for an incredibly romantic scene. The trench coat, to some extent a basic item of clothing, has the ability to transform any look into something very chic.
