Inspiration Du Jour 11.27.09

My favorite movie of all time is Breakfast at Tiffanys. I love the character Holly GoLightly. The carefree whimsical woman. If I could be anyone in the world obviously including ficticious characters it would be her!

Breakfast at Tiffanys was originally a novella written by Truman Capote. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is without a doubt one of the most well-loved classics of its time. Fashion designers today are still trying to achieve that perfect “little black dress” look that Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly carries of so well in this movie. This movie's plot is not very straightforward.

They film has truly become iconic, mostly because of Edith Head, one of Hollywood’s top costume designers, ability to capture the essence of Holly Golightly’s character a new york socialiate, careless, whimsical, silly and endearing.

I think many females can identify with Holly’s search for a life of her own. And what woman does not want to simply stand and gaze into the windows at Tiffany’s?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s was nominated for 5 Oscars in 1962 including Best Actress, Best Writing (the movies was based on a novella by Truman Capote), and Best Music, Original Song (for the classic “Moon River” sung by Hepbun in the film).

Hepburn is fantastic as usual and Peppard is great as a leading man.

I find endless inspiration in Audrey Hepburn and this movie. If you have not seen this movie I strongly urge you to watch this over and over and over, like I do!
